Hi everyone,

Looking for some help and tips here.

Background: Im just about to graduate from industrial engineering undergrad from a top 5 university in Latin America. My program is the most prestigious in the country but due to lack of motivation at some point I ended up with a 3.0/4 GPA.

However, I was able to succesfully land a job at Boston Consulting Group.

Thinking into the future, I realize my low gpa will hurt my B-School chances. I also know that my BCG work experience will help me.

I wanted to know what tips you have for me for the next 4-5 years in order to strengthen my chances of getting into a top MBA program.

Additionally, I practiced a lot of GMAT due to the fact that a lot of the companies I was interviewing with had GMAT-like tests as their first filter and I was very good at quant but not very good at verbal. How would you recommend I go about strengthening my verbal score in the coming years? Reading a lot books? Or just straight up practicing verbal questions periodically?

Any tips you have are greatly appreciated! I know Im fighting an uphill battle but im optimistic that if I plan out a clear road map I will increase my chances significantly, thank you for your time!!

Edit:
Just for reference:
- I am latin american with lebanese descent.
-Ex-military (1 year experience)

sgutierrez13, congrats on the BCG job. That alone will help tons as you know.

Work methodically on addressing the low GPA aspect.

Not an expert on GMAT, but you'll find tips/resources here.

Finally, chalk out a well-thought through plan for profile-building over the next few years.
