Be sure to explain why you want to go into consulting (SOOO many applicants do) and perhaps be open to firms other than MBB for your ST goal since there’s so much competition there. Your GPA is a bit of a weak point but you have a solid GMAT that should help overcome it as well as the other parts of your profile that are really …
