Hi Everyone,

I’ve taken the GMAT thrice and have gone through the application process twice.

With 6yrs of IT experience, a highest GMAT score of 710, 11 dings and 1 admit (@ SMU – Cox w $$) over the last two years, and an aim to build a career in Strategy Consulting, is accepting the SMU – Cox admit a sensible decision? Or I should re-visit the application I prepared? Your inputs will be highly appreciated. Thanks!!

aalriy,

It depends on the kind of consulting you want to do. If you want McKinsey, Bain, BCG, etc then Cox probably will not be the best school for you. Check the consulting firms that recruit at Cox and see if those are the ones you want to work. But even if they aren't, you have to ask yourself if it makes sense to shoot for the McKs of the world. maybe an IT consulting firm would be a great fit for you and those are the firms that recruit at Cox.

While I don't like to view admissions as a scorecard in looking at the record you posted above, either you are doing something seriously wrong in your application or you simply aren't competitive at the elite consulting firms' feeder schools. If so, happily take the Cox acceptance and adjust your goal to something more achievable. Cox has many happy, successful grads.
