Hi everyone! :)
If I were to apply for the MBB it'll be for Australia (I'm not sure if the competitiveness varies based on the location)... but I'm sitting on a VERY low WAM (70ish). I know it's crazy (absolutely bonkers) to think I have a chance with the MBB with these credentials but would love to solicit some feedback from you and get some closure... My current situation looks like this:
1. Low WAM (70s) at GO8- Business degree
2. Work Experience (in-house strategy experience with one of the big 4 banks, worked a year at PwC in Risk consulting)
3. ECs (Co-chair of societies, random volunteer stints, won a few innovation challenges)
I'm not sure if there's an automatic GPA cut-off (meaning I won't even get to the screening stage)?
I'll love to hear from you (1) Do I even have a chance? Is there an automatic GPA cut-off? (2) If there's absolutely no hope... Should I do a masters? (would this discount the Undergrad GPA if I apply for a BA role)? Or should I just go for an MBA and apply for an Associate position? (I've heard the Undegrad WAM won't play a huge role with Associate applications)...
Thank you so much! :)
