Try this approach: http://www.find-mba.com/board/33571

Generally, you need to be as specific as possible about what sort of consulting you want to do. The strategy consulting firms focus on hiring from the top ten UK schools, which use the GMAT. You will be well advised to take the GMAT and apply in later this year for entry in 2014.

If you want to work in mainland Europe, work on your languages.

Use the approach in the post I linked to. None of these schools is a credible path into strategy consulting, so think about what sort of consulting you want to do. Generally, get into the best programme you can.
