So after doing some research, it sounds like it's understood that if you didn't have prior experience in a specialized finance industry like PE/VC you're probably not going to get in unless you were in IB or Consulting.
Which leads to my question, if you weren't in IB or Consulting which MBA can perhaps help get you into PE/VC/Hedge Funds, why do others want to get an MBA if it's nearly impossible to break in?
another unrelated question which "search" didn't really answer, how many years at say a big4 is generally needed to get into a m7 mba program? Someone said only like 2% of a class is from accounting- is this because accountants don't get in or they don't want to get in. So let's say I decide to go easy route of big4 --> m7 mba... where would i and the other non-bankers/consultants most likely land since PE/VC run in their own circles?
