I’ve also been working since 2018 doing administrative roles.

I got my MBA and found that if you’re not in a feeder school you either have a friend who helps you with a referral or you network a ton to find someone to refer you. I started a lesser known consulting firm and then got a big 4 job after a few years. This is also because recruiting teams are swamped.

Apply ASAP! it’s never too soon to make relationships with recruiters. Connecting on LinkedIn will benefit you in the long run. Also don’t limit your self to big 4. Apply everywhere because even if it’s not your dream company, the interview practice will do you good.

First time GMAT, scored a 650. Practice tests were coming in around 680, but bombed quant (41Q, 38V, 8 IR). I am confident that I can score better my next time around, but out of curiosity, what rank of school could I possibly get into with this score? 2 years work experience B4 consulting, very solid undergrad involvement/GPA. Trying to decide if it’s worth applying to my target schools this year or if I delay for another year in order to study more.
