Do you think I have higher chances of receiving an internship offer + successfully completing the internship and receiving a return offer; than getting an offer directly through full-time interviews?
Short and complicated background: Fortunately, I will have interviews at all MBBs: one for an internship and two for full-time. Originally, I wanted to do an internship, but then realized that I would not have enough time during my studies to do additional internships + thought I would have a higher/same chance of receiving an offer through full-time interviewing (at least at Mck). This is why the first two applications were for internships (I was able to switch one to full-time) and the third one for full-time.
However, recently (two months after the change) my study plans completely changed, as I was selected for a funded exchange semester in winter, which leaves me enough time to do an internship in summer.
I feel like I should change it back because an internship makes more sense. However, on the other hand I am unsure wether its worth the drama & stress (again! :D); and would actually even be nicer to have some time in summer. I have done internships in T2 Consulting and IB, so I feel confident that I would not mess up another internship, but still there is always the risk.
Does it make a difference to try it via the internship or full-time? - Many thanks!
