Question: I am inquiring about what age you think any of the large consulting firms would deem too old to interview a potential candidate. I am a 39 year old physician that works in a small practice as an anesthesiologist. My business experience is limited, however I am a part owner of our 28 employee [...]

To begin with, I want to thank [...]

I can't thank you enough for providing these invaluable resources. Your videos are by far the clearest and the most helpful in aceing the case interviews. If most other resources are like giving a fishing rod to a hungry man (or giving frameworks to a desperate consultant-to-be), yours is like teaching someone how to make [...]

Management does not want the 20 million loss to show on their Profit and Loss statement. They have to save the money somehow. How would you approach this? [...]

I recently graduated from a Western Europe University and I spent my last year in a top engineering university in (Major US City). A few days ago, I got an offer from a local office in BCG Western Europe. I relied my preparation in your videos and the Case in Point's book. I am not [...]
