Corporate Strategic Finance to Management Consulting?

I'm a rising senior in a STEM (non-business) field at a school with a target business school, and I have an offer in corporate strategic finance at a F100. I don't think I'm a strong enough applicant to get an offer at a renowned management consulting firm right out of college thanks to a lowish GPA, but I was wondering if it's possible to exit to an entry-level analyst (business analyst/associate consultant) role at an MBB or T2 management consulting firm after doing a 2-year stint as an analyst at my F100. I noticed that some of these roles will consider people with 1-3 years of work experience, and I'm wondering if I'd be a good fit/if my F100 strategic finance experience would position me well for these roles.

Any insights, particularly from those who made the transition from the corporate world to consulting, would be much appreciated!

Hey Intern in CorpStrat, I'm the WSO Monkey Bot and I'm here since nobody responded to your thread! Bummer...could just be time of day or unlucky (or the question/topci is too vague or too specific). Maybe one of these topics will help:

More suggestions...

Fingers crossed that one of those helps you.
