3.3 GPA in CS, 760 GMAT, Deloitte internships - should I bother applying to deferred MBAs? Or do I not have a shot?

If you’re pursuing an engineering / CS post-grad, yes. Deferred is the opportunity to attract candidates who won’t find there way back to an MBA (aka: a SWE). If you’re going into consulting, they know you’ll reapply in 3-5 years anyway. This is simplified, of course.

Got it thanks!

I was waitlisted at Yale SS after interview with 3.7/720 with PwC tech consulting internship and full time. Was president at a couple things in undergrad which have honestly been big pluses for my apps now (3 yrs later). Based on this, I think you should go for it. If you’re able to secure MBB/T2 full time offers prior/during application, you should get some hits, especially since Penn, NW, MIT, Booth all have deferred programs now (and at least a couple without MBB too). Assuming you’ve got 2-3 very solid extra-curriculars and progressive leadership roles.

I had a good experience with mine at MBAMission and my gf had a not so good experience with hers at Stacy Blackman. Dm me and I can give you names

Haven’t heard anything back since then. Is that weird? Does the recruiter actually think I am a good fit for the role? She sent me the name of the company and everything.
