Your basic stats are great but I am concerned that your job hopping may not have given you an opportunity to prove yourself and advance in responsibility. The financial services consulting role sounds like the perfect place for you to shine for the next year or so before applying. Look for opportunities to lead and make an impact both on your firm and on its clients to distinguish yourself professionally and you should be able to prove to the likes of MIT, Wharton, Kellogg, Columbia, and Duke that you are an ideal candidate.

Thank you for your response!

In regards to the timing of applying, if I choose to apply this fall, I will have 1 year of financial services consulting by the time of my application and 2 years by the time of my (hopeful) matriculation. Do you think this year is too early for me to consider applying?

I appreciate your help.

A lot depends on what you are able to accomplish in that year, but your 3 years of work experience when applying (4 when matriculating) is certainly within the range for the programs you are targeting and there is no downside to giving the applications a try this year.
