Realistic?

GR

Dear All,

Quick question, but perhaps a lengthy way of asking it!!

I graduated with a 2:1 as a Master of Engineering (not Oxbridge), but the course was ranked 1st in The Times at time of graduation. I have worked as an Engineer for approx 5 years, 2 of which mainly project managing. The shine somewhat rubbed off about a year ago and decided to go for an MBA (not a top tier b-school, but still ranked 4th in the UK's current RAE rankings, which impresses nobody I know!) as a means of entering the Management Consulting world. I am now a few months from completing the MBA, and trying to get an interview for Ops Management or Business Transformation at junior/consultant level.

My biggest problem is, despite doing them 10 years ago, my UCAS points are not enough for the big 4s and certainly not for the MBBBs.

First Question: Could this be a hurdle too great applicable for all consulting companies (big and boutique)? As, a side note; my UCAS points are still respectable (in my rose tinted opinion) but they are circa 20 to 40 points short from most requirements advertised.

Am I realistic with my goal of entering the Consulting profession?

Any advice would be much appreciated...

Thanks.

It's a secret to GR (#1)

Assuming that your Engineering Masters, and MBA are from a good university and your work experience is solid (which as an Engineer I assume it be quite technical and focussed on problem solving), then UCAS become less relevant even for the big boys (within reason), but even less so for boutiques, I'd say.

Anyone?

Good luck...
