I think it depends on the story you tell about where you want to go post bschool and how it will help you succeed in bschool. Consultants are desirable to MBA programs because they are very employable after they graduate and have the analytical skills to do the work

I’ve started on a clinical trial and they assigned me an app to work with called Digbi…well it’s been interesting the last few weeks on shifting my eating habits! They score your meals. And I finally got a perfect score with smoked salmon lettuce wraps, avocado tomato, boiled egg and air fried balsamic Brussels. Surprisingly filled me up for most of the day.
