Tips from BCG New Hire

Email: I first of all would like to thank you for your help. Your resources have been invaluable to me.

I think there are several reasons to my achievement: [...]

New BCG Offer

Email: I wanted to email you today to thank you for your videos and insights into the case interview process. I’d imagine you get a 1000 of these emails a day so I will keep it short, but your frameworks allowed me to pull everything together into an extremely powerful approach that eventually secured me [...]

LEK Interview Cover Letter

Email: You might not remember me, but I must say I owe a big deal to you. Close to a year ago, I was unsuccessful with my applications for internships with consulting firms, getting only one interview and failing that too. That was when I came across your site and sent you an email on [...]

First, I wanted to thank you for the advice you gave in your 6 hour tutorials, and in all the great examples of cases you put on your website: – I only had one week to prepare [...]

Deloitte Interview

Deloitte Interview Question: I found out at the end of last week that I have a final round case interview at Deloitte Consulting, which consists of a 1 hour case. Being an engineering major, and not business, I was wondering if an interviewer takes a candidates background into consideration when deciding on a case? As [...]

BCG Internship

BCG Internship Success Story: I would like to thank you for your resources (case interviews website + Look Over My Shoulder®). It helped me even more than any books did. Honestly I did not have time to finish reading all the books, so I just glanced through the beginning of Case In Point and practices. [...]
