Hate to say it, but I think working on your GMAT score is the silver bullet to your situation...


I would guess the schools that wave the GMAT are not on the list for MBB.

What about an executive MBA at a brand name? They have lower requirements (Darden, Wharton, etc).

What was your score?


Yeah I was thinking the same thing. Figured it doesn't hurt to ask. Thanks!

You can also get a job at MBB without an MBA. You may have to start on the Federal consulting side then switch over.


Get a referral. That's how I was able to get an interview with BCG.


UMGC doesn't require the GMAT and has a business school. If you're in the DC area, check it out. You may not have to leave, either.




Have a disability rating? If so, consider trying to use Voc Rehab.

You need to be a BS artist to get Voc Rehab to work for you.

Voc Rehab is for people whose disabilities limit them in their current job and need to be retrained. So you’d need to find a way to craft that narrative. Can be a pain though.


How bad was the GMAT? Are we talking sub-700 bad?

Nah, dawg

PSU World Campus, no GMAT

Anyone here at BCG and also serving in the reserves? I'm interviewing at BCG and want to understand how supportive they are of military leave, especially for annual training, PME, etc.


Thank you for my service

I am a veteran with relatively little business experience and currently navigating through consulting mainly in generalist roles. Realistically, how long do you think someone can perform work as a generalist and, if forced to transition out, what might be some alternative career options?


Biden dips pouches


Looking at joining BCG, what’s their military leave policy look like? I’m in the Guard have a deployment coming up in 2021.


Perspective. I’m retiring from the service and I’ve positioned myself decently to be competitive. I have a graduate degree pursuing a doctorate, LSSBB, ScrumMaster, SPHR, and PMI-ACP. I’ve been offered two positions that are great and on the human capital team. For someone in this situation where should I be looking as commensurate with my certifications and experience?


Definitely cart before horse, but how long do you get to accept a job offer? I see in the other bowls, people considering multiple offers...often.


SO going through Ranger School starting next week. Very nervous for the next couple months 🥺 any words of wisdom are appreciated!


You know that hazing was about to get real when they brought Gatorade for you to drink half way through.
