Hi Harsha,

Yes, the past acads will be counted if you are targetting consulting and finance roles and companies. One might face difficulties in finding a place in the initial shortlists. Students with average academic history have a hard time at the top B-Schools.

All the best!

Hey, Harsha! 
To answer your question in a word, yes. 
 
Past experience does matter in getting shortlisted, let alone getting selected. This is true not just with consulting companies but majorly all domains apart from marketing.  However, if you believe that it is the only thing that recruiters look for, you will be wrong.  Work experience is an enabler and not an impediment. 
 If your have a relevant work experience it helps you improve your odds of getting shortlisted.
