It's a journey from 640 to 750-- and if you seek Wharton or Yale you will want to be closer to the latter. For Tepper, HEC Paris, Rotman, NUS and ISB you can be a little lower-- but aim for 700+ still.

For consulting you will want that higher GMAT score regardless of which program as consulting likes GMAT superheroes... I think your unusual DJ activities gives you a bit of a spark factor that might help-- think about how you can add value to the community at the schools on your list. Also- hopefully you have some promotions in your work as that will help to show progression. Do your homework to understand WHY and HOW each school can help you achieve your goals.

Well first- have a real score on GMAT so you can see where you stand-- but also go ahead and really do some research to find your best fit for MBA programs-- as there are many ways to get to consulting from MBA programs- you will stand out if you do this-- reach out to students while they are on campus still as once April is over you won't easily be able to connect with current students until Sept or Oct.-
