It's honestly just too hard to say without knowing anything about you other than the fact that you're a civil engineer. If you can get into a top 5 business school then your post-MBA goals are definitely realistic. The question is really can you get into a top 5 b-school. :) But like I said, without knowing more about you it's not possible to make any predictions there either. Generally speaking you need to hit & ideally exceed the average GMAT & GPA (from a top school) at your target schools. If by any chance you are in Indian male you'll need to aim for a GMAT that's ~30 points above the average -- that's the most overrepresented demographic when it comes to b-school apps & it's also one that tends to have very high GMAT scores. You'll also need strong work experience where you've ideally driven quantifiable results & demonstrated leadership. That will help show them what you can uniquely contribute & why they should admit you over all the other engineers who will be applying & who have consulting as a goal. Finally, you'll need a strong argument as to WHY these are your post MBA goals & what exactly you hope to accomplish there. Keep in mind that consulting is a very common post-MBA goal, so it's not one that's going to differentiate you in any way & you'll face lots of competition. Among Indian male engineers the #1 most common goal is product manager in a tech firm & #2 is consulting. But even outside of that demographic consulting is very common & the adcom will be comparing you against all the other applicants who also say they want to go into consulting.

Hopefully that gives you some food for thought. If you'd like more specific direction feel free to reach out to us. If you email Claudia at claudia@admissionado.com she can set you up with a free consultation with one of our MBA consultants who can take a look at your resume & give you some thoughts.
