    So initially I wanted to do Medicine and actually got an offer at Manchester, however, now Im having second thoughts. If I was to apply to McKinsey for their Business Analyst role then will I have any chance if I attended Queen Mary University of London and studied Medical Engineering (albeit I did get a first)? Or does McKinsey really target the Oxbridge candidates and overlook all the other Russell group universities?


    Thanks for any responses!

    So you want to go into management consulting, not necessarily at McKinsey & Co.

    I don't see why not, if you get a really good grade and show initiative, banks like Goldman have huge investments in these sectors also. Bain cover consulting and private equity.

    Could always do an M.Sc. in Management / Management Science afterwards.

    Cambridge have an M.Phil. in Management if you want to get that on your CV.

    In reality, you don't have a chance. No harm in applying but if you're really keep on MBB but can't get in now then join a lesser consulting firm (AT Kearney, OW) and then go do an MBA at a top school.

    Sounds like to me you don't really know what you want.
