    I've got a couple investment banking internships, and want to apply for consulting. I'm in my final year, should I apply for internships and then say I am doing a master's (which I dont want to do) and deal with it later if I get an offer, or should I apply for grad roles? I'm just thinking that since I have no consulting experience and the grad roles are really competitive, I would have more of a chance at getting an internship than a grad position. I also haven't practised cases or market sizing questions yet, so will need some time do that. Thanks for the advice!

    Hey buddy, I was in your position where I did my placement and summer internship in asset management and wealth management but decided in my final year to change to consulting.

    I can tell you that your IB internships (CV) won't hold you back and you should go for graduate programme. Your biggest issue is going to be the case interviews. You will need to practice a lot on those and get great at them. Check out Case in point if you haven't already. It's a good start.

    November and December. You also get some in mid January and February. Have you been applying and if so where? I can see if I have had interviews with them to give you some insights.
