For pre-mba yes. Post mba direct from school we ask for Gmats. Sometimes will look at SATs. More just to make sure you have a facility with numbers. There are so many really smart applicants to all the consulting firms - mbb and beyond, that any little differentiating factor is looked at

Do these get verified?

Hi everyone, I need your advice. I've been interviewing with MBB and Tier 2 firms over the past few years. However I was never well prepared for case studies.

I was on a business trip with my boss who is a black male. We were eating breakfast (in a hotel catering to business travel, wearing business attire) and another black male (in business attire) came up to him, struck up a conversation said "its good to see another successful black guy" and they exchanged cards. I had never seen it before. When the guy went away I asked my boss about it and he said he will occasionally do that when he sees another black guy in a business setting. CTD.

So I started at a new role at a known retailer about 2 months ago. I am their first hire in this role, as I have more than 5 years of relevant experience leading initiatives and optimizing process across departments.

I already feel myself not wanting to be here long, but I'm putting pressure on myself to not be a quitter. Would you stick it out or start looking?
