I don’t know if you remember, but we met when I attended a consulting workshop at my school. Afterwards, I used that info as well as the structure and math drills to land an accelerated AC offer from Bain (I didn’t have an exploding return offer and was rejected pre-interview from the internship position – they invited me because I did well in practice cases).
I can’t emphasize enough how random my background looks (biology major with a few internships in academia and tech). Being deliberate about improving my math, crafting my “story,” plus having two 1-on-1 sessions made a huge difference.
Thank you for making consulting accessible to first generation college students.
