Dont think it's that hard. Good undergrad GPA + good GMAT should get you into the doors. If you want to be extra, start a start-up project or a charity to ensure you hit all of their sweet spots

Moving to another country for grad school. Current firm has operations in the region, but my practice has no presence, so transferring is not an option. Due to visa status, I’m not eligible to work in the country. Thought is to secure a remote position with a company here in the states that is flexible regarding working hours; there is an 8-hour time difference. Has anyone experienced this?
