If you need a definition for top 10, you didn't go to a top 10 school

@pwc I had decent essays and Recs, but nothing amazing. Honestly I think it's mostly a GMAT game at this point.

Define top10

Ahahahahahahahaha D1, very funny - I went to Ross, which according to some people is borderline top10

Yale is another example - top10 according to some rankings, top10-20 according to others

Booth & Kellogg admits, among others. 750, 3.5ish from top 20 undergrad with a respectable major

^ Oh yeah, 720, 3.6 Ivy League econ major, admits from Ross, Duke and Cornell

One thing to really take to heart is that the stats are really only part of the equation. Those essays and interviews do count as does work experience and goals for the future. There are many many many consultants applying so it's important to be different. (Top ratings every year doesn't really count as different)

.

Call it top 15. D2 I get what you are saying. I do also believe that it's difficult to step outside of mere statistics in our line of work. Everyone can build up projects they've worked on, it is likely that between two Deloitte/PwC consultants with similar experiences and decent essays, statistics will end up deciding

SC1 what would you say was the key for your successful application besides a solid gmat?

.

If you have less than 4 years, taking a year or so and doing a non-consulting job could be a nice differentiator

@PWC2 Go Blue!

Does having a PMP certification hold any water in digital media? Do folks care? I’ve been using PMI resources to help solve problems / improve stuff at my org, and I’m tempted to get the full cert but I’m not sure if it’d actually mean anything / have a meaningful impact on my career or pay.

It’s not a huge investment in time or money but if it doesn’t have much of an impact I’d rather just keep reading free resources online on my own time

Looking for advice … it often seems I am one click below the level I should be at given I joined consulting in my early 30s post MBA.

Part of it has been pushing for it a lot and that I believe is not getting me the right outcomes. Any advice for partners that have been here? Just hit 40 as well.
