McKinsey Final Round Feedback: Over-Structuring

Question: Thank you so much for all the help that you gave us. I am going to sign up with a boutique consulting firm, and wondering can you add me into the loop of F1Y? I also would love to hear your thoughts on my McKinsey final round feedback. I got the feedback that I [...]

Entering Consulting as a Seasoned Executive

Question: I stumbled upon your site via a local headhunter’s interview brief – fascinating trove of information in a world that I’ve touched but not lived in – a.k.a. management consulting.  On the other hand, I’ve been a general manager/head of operations for some highly specialized technology companies.   So this smallish consulting firm is [...]

A Message of Appreciation

In the United States, we are celebrating the holiday of Thanksgiving — where it is customary to take one day out of the year to think about everything one is grateful for in life. I wanted to take this time to express my appreciation and gratitude to you and the rest of the CaseInterview.com community. [...]

Is MBB now BBM?

Question: I have come across an article being published in an ex MBB management consulting firm, something it says about a survey/ranking it did for the management consulting firms. And in summary, it says like the ranking order now is: BCG, Bain, McKinsey; is that true? This survey they made, is after the recent drama [...]

Accenture Kiss of Death

Question: First, I want to thank you for your website. Through your videos, I was able to secure a full-time offer from Accenture for the Management Consultant Development Program in the [U.S. city] office.

On this note, also thank you for recently updating the LOMS program for the McKinsey’s “Interviewer-Led” cases – of which I just had two yesterday with McKinsey. [...]

BCG 1st Round Rejection - Now What?

Question: Today I got a feedback call from BCG. Three weeks ago I had a selection process for a business course (recruitment event) at BCG, which was comparable with a first round. I had two case interviews and an online case test. This was the first time I did a case interview and I received [...]

Rejection from Top 3 Consulting Firms

Question: Thank you for your regular emails, they are extremely helpful and I only wish I knew about your site earlier. I learned about it only one month before my interviews, where I should have been heeding your advice one year before. I am not doing an MBA program, but I attend the top masters [...]

McKinsey Numbers / Math Test

Question: I have just subscribed to your website and I find your videos and notes very helpful. I have my first round interview with McKinsey this week (I was notified less than a week before) and I have already taken the PST and looked at other companies’ tests as well. In the email I received, [...]

Can you advise me of the approach I should use to [...]
