    Why don't you try your luck and register? I'm from one of those schools and I just registered and got an immediate confirmation email so it's probably automated. Once there you can network there and try your luck

    Hi guys,

    I am looking to apply to PwC for consulting, but I am unsure which division to go for- strategy or management. Does anyone know how big each division is, what the size of their intern class is, etc?
    Im applying for management. Its a bigger division than strategy and i assume a bigger intern class. Only reason I picked management over strategy is that strategy is quite specialised. Look at the careers page and see the industries/areas covered by both and see which ones you prefer.
    Another thing is that strategy seems to be dominated by Oxbridge/LSE/ students that didnt get places at MBB. So it may be harder if your not from there but still definitely possible

    If its optional theres probably no point because it means the hr team arent obligated to read it. so you could be wasting your time but if they do read it and its good then its not a waste of time. up to you really

    mckinsey don't like CL's, they only have the option in order to give people the chance to explain any extenuating circumstances they may have

    they prioritize CV's, so make sure it's stellar.
