At B4 Non-Strat. 720/3.7/good state school/ORM Male. Made it into Kellogg $, Sloan, Haas (WL), Ross full ride, and Darden. Don’t ding yourself before you begin!

No you are fine. I’m at Accenture non strat and got into an M7 with a half ride. I’m also ORM female.

332 GRE and 3.3 GPA. I have a good story though. My impression is that not one part of your application will ding you. They want people with diverse background. Being in strategy consulting is not a prerequisite for getting into top b school. Accenture is a great company and does way more meaningful work than just strategy consulting.

United Platinum here - got an offer to pay ~$6k for upgrade to 1K. Thoughts on if it’s worth it? Already belong to Club (United Infinite) and have CLEAR credit through Amex Platinum. Still have 40 plus points from hitting Platinum last year. Unlikely to travel for business until late 2Q at earliest but have 2-3 transcontinental flights planned for summer and 1 transatlantic for fall. Maybe another 1-2 shorter trips this year as well. I imagine I’d use my extra plus points on all these.
