    Hi Mr. Worker Bee! This is Kate Richardson, Senior Admissions Consultant. Nice to come across a fellow Illinois grad here! Sounds like you’ve explored much beyond Illinois and I think Columbia will especially love that international experience you’ve had. I’ve worked with a lot of Big 4 applicants, it’s a pretty well-represented pool, but it sounds like you’ve been a top performer. I also think the practice areas you’ve been with (M&A and Transfer Pricing) are known for selecting top candidates and offering experience that should translate well to a strategy consulting role. Regarding extracurriculars, if “heavily involved” means a leadership role, then that will look great. If not, that could be an area that is lacking, especially if you don’t have other activities outside …

    Mr. Worker Bee – Susan Cera, Director of MBA Admissions, here. I think your global exposure is very interesting, especially the fact that you have lived in 10 different countries! For CBS, my concern is that your stats and work are a bit on the softer side. Furthermore, I suggest that you might benefit from clarifying your goals. There are a LOT of candidates who want to go into ‘strategy consulting’ are a dime a dozen. Having a more specific goal that aligns with your personal and professional experience to date will enable you to stand out in the eyes of admissions committee. All the best!
