    Hey guys,

    I am currently in my second year of university (American curriculum) and I have gotten interested in management consultancy as a career. I am doing my undergrad in business management and plan to study msc management at the likes of LSE or UCL, whilst doing extracurriculars, volunteer work, and maintaining my GPA.

    My question is: what is the typical educational and career path if I wanted to get into a starter consultancy position in the Big 3 or at Accenture (so basically, a good firm). Is it all about the grades and work experience? What can I do to stand out to these firms in the future?

    FYI: the uni I go to now for my undergrad is extremely low-ranked; about 800th in the world. This is because I didn't take school very seriously until recently, but my grades have definitely picked up. Will the low rank of my uni affect my chances of getting in?
