Although I realise these threads tend to be skewed towards IB rather than consulting, I was wondering whether anybody knows whether it's possible to get an internship at McKinseys or another high calibre consultancy if I go to Warwick? (Doing compsci)

It is possible since other Warwick students have done it before. However, the big strategy consultants like McKinsey prefer Oxbridge candidates and, to a lesser extent, LSE and Imperial graduates. However, you will stand a chance as a Warwick student if you build up experience and get involved in extracurricular and maybe network with employees at places like McKinsey.

Not a 'top feeder', that would go to Oxbridge/imperial/LSE, but definitely gets attention from all three consulting firms.

I know you probably won't like this question, but is there a full list of semi-target and target universities as the OP says there are a few others. I also have a question, would going to the University of Surrey limit my chances? For AS I only got BBCD, could I still turn it around and get into IB in the future? If the questions are stupid, I'm sorry as I have very little knowledge on the matter. Thanks.

There's an FAQ thread. And yes you can, just work your butt off to increase your grades whilst you still can.

Thanks mate, I didn't see that, but I'll head over and have a look now. I think putting in some work I'll be able to manage AAB.

KCL is a semi-target, that's all the relevant info you really need. The course will neither make you more competitive nor prepare you more than any other course.

Depends on your ps. Spread out your risk
Pick 2 or 3 'top tier unis' - oxbridge, ucl lse warwick
1 or 2 mid tier like notts bristol or bath
1 or 2 low tier/easier to get into like manchester or leeds

Depends on your predicted grades too and whether you do maths or FM at a level
Having said that you stand an excellent chance at some very good universities provided you have a good PS and extea curriculurs. Be wise. The world may or may not be your oyster

I see you saying this in every post. I don't understand how people haven't got it yet.
