Getting into management consulting


Hi everyone
I am new to this forum so not entirely sure how this is going to work! I have read a lot of the comments so far and they are all very useful! I have been reading up a lot about management consultancy in the past few weeks and its something I would really like to persue as a career. But my educational background is mainly science…both my undergraduate and Masters (which I am currently doing) is in a science degree. Dont have much business experience except for wen i worked in a retail shop for a few months (not sure if this counts!) How difficult is it getting in with a science degree and will it put me at a disadvantage?
Thank you!!
