2 years and no

Yes. Bain will ask for it. It’s not as much of a hard cutoff these days though, general rule of thumb is having around 680-690 or higher. Anything lower and you’ll need to compensate elsewhere on resume + networking.

Yes. I’ve heard 700+ to get through resume screen unless something outstanding on your resume or if someone from networking remembers you and puts your name in. I saw the resumes this year and actually didn’t even see any candidates in my “pile” from my school sub 700 - scores just keep going up and up!

Yes. 700+ is threshold at BCG

Yup, below 700 we “act cautiously”

I have a 700+ score but nonMBA background. 5+ years in Big4 consulting. Can I still apply? If yes, would you recommend hiring a coach to get in?

You can still apply but I don’t know how likely your profile is to stand out. High GMAT score alone isn’t differentiating - a lot of the folks you’re competing with have 3-5 year of experience + high GMAT + MBA. You would need a killer reference, someone to go to bat for you. I doubt a coach would help.

Amex platinum doesn’t seem like the right move for me right now.
