I have just graduated from a top-tier engineering school with a 3.2 GPA. I have exposure to management consulting from a summer internship and plenty of school leadership and business-related summer work experience. Will firms not consider my experience, due to my low GPA?
I have the opportunity to work as a business analyst for the marketing department of a blue chip airline? If I take the opportunity and work at it for 2-3 years, how would I leverage this potential experience to start a career in management consulting? After 2-3 years of working, will firms lower the weight they place on my GPA?
