well i don't think you need to be an MBA to be in consulting...but again it depends on which domain of consulting you are in...
the big 4's (deloitte, E&Y;, KPMG, PWC) hire people from various other backgrounds too...like CFA..or process consultants...or technical architects...or CAs
but for things related to Finance...an MBA degree is an added advantage.
And I know the other guy who was rejected with a score of 780. Coincidentally, he was also rejected by INSEAD & HBS.
Congrats to everyone who passed. For those who didn't, fear not. All Dec 09 candidates are with you!
Way to go dude/girl!
With your unique work exp and this cracking score, you're surely on the path toward ISB.

@isb2009: Couldn't have said it better! Great post that should be read by anyone who's in two minds right now.
Doing MBA from UK is not worth these days, the Job scenarios is very bad, the employers doesnt show any interset in recruiting International students, moreover it is impossible these days to find part time jobs as well, I am doing my MBA from UK and still struggling for Jobs either part time or full time. My suggestion to you Guys is that if you want to come only for studies then it is up to you, but if you are thinking of earning money, jobs in companies, either good or bad, think several times before coming here.
Guys, how's your CFA prep coming along? I've finished studying books #1 and #2. However, there are about a hundred pages missing from the scanned copy of book #3. Does anyone have that book in its entirety? Please post the download link if you have it.
