2.6 GPA into strategy consulting?
Currently in my final year of university at a semi-target school studying economics. I'm extremely interested in strategy consulting but my GPA is shit. I almost failed out my first and second year but since then have maintained a GPA of around 3.5 which has let to a CGPA of 2.64.
Despite my GPA I have relatively solid work experience (1 year as a market research analyst at a reputable company + some other internships) and have always held a side job throughout university to support myself.
I've been networking like crazy and have secured two referrals from senior consultants at EY and. I didn't mention my GPA to either..
Realistically, is it possible to break in with such a shit GPA? Has anybody done it successfully who is willing to share their approach? Any advice is welcome.
