Hi there!

You have a good profile and could be attractive candidate for Tuck as well as your target employers.

Since your post-MBA goal is to join MBB for consulting, I'd say a significant part of your candidature would rest on your GMAT score. The top consulting firms have a cut off of 700 on GMAT when inviting you for interview for recruiting. B-schools take into account this fact while admitting new students. And consulting being most common and highly sought after post-MBA career, its gets very competitive.

Therefore, I'd suggest, at this time, please devote your time to get the best score you can. Aiming for 720+ would help you greatly.

If you want to talk more or need help with your application, email me!

Good luck!

I think you have the potential to be competitive at Tuck and many top programs- but you will have to demonstrate why Tuck appeals to you- also highlight your global and your team experiences. It is great that you already have some PE experience! Be sure to visit - or if you can't do that participate in online chats and local MBA tours where you can meet someone from Tuck- you will need to show why this program (and really for any program) has some unique aspects that really make sense for me. If you'd like to learn more about how we can help you in presenting your best self... call us for a free consult and we can talk more: https://stratusprep.com/free-consult/
