I recently graduated from Yale with a 3.56 GPA this May (I struggled initially, but my GPA in the last two years of college was a 3.9).
I found out about consulting pretty late in my senior year and missed the oppurtunity to apply to most firms outside of BCG. (They had a second round in mid-Spring. While I made it to the final round, I did not recieve an offer.)
My question is, what are my chances of at least getting my foot in the door at this point? Moreover, what should that look like? I know people stress the importance of netorking, but I only know one other consultant who only recently started at another MBB firm. Will firms even consider me?
Of specific worry is the fact that all the firms I've looked at seem to specify they either want applicants in the final year of college or an expeirnced hire–of which I am niether. So logistically, I'm unsure how to even begin my application process.
