MBB - Apply for Associate Consultant, or...At Bain you could probably start at Senior Associate Consultant with your work experience, but I don't think you can start as consultant, which is post-MBA/PhD. As always, you need to get the interview. Your stats are far from impressive, so you have to leverage your experience. If you are serious... 2 years 5 months
