Getting The Interview

Question: Firstly, I would like to say a big thank you. I recently passed my first round interview at McKinsey, and the feedback from my interviewer was great! He said that I did very well during the case, very well structured and hypothesis. After using your method, I really progressed and started to understand the [...]

Question: First of all, happy new year! I’ve been spending most of this winter break working on consulting applications, and your blog and website have been most helpful. I came by an entry you did on consulting cover letters which was enlightening, and I was wondering if you have an opinion on presenting an “angle” [...]

Question: First of all, I would like to say thanks to you for everything you do. I admire you and surely would love to meet person like you. I have completed my undergraduate degree (BSC hons in Accounting and Finance from the best university in [my country]). I applied to consulting companies in UAE but [...]

Email 1 of 2: https://www.caseinterview.com/case-interview-confidence Email 2 of 2: Hi Victor! I passed the first round interview! Thank you so much! The feedback from the interviewers was that I had a good structure and I was asking the right questions (asking for the correct data to test the hypothesis). I would not have been able [...]

How do you handle the situation?” This could [...]

Question on McKinsey Interview: I’ve been watching your videos/following your somewhat daily email postings on the McKinsey interview for a while now. I have a question regarding summer recruiting. I attend the University of Southern California. According to the McKinsey website and talking to my friends, McKinsey does not go through formal recruiting at my [...]

Question: Here’s a question that may be on a lot of people’s minds but which I haven’t seen addressed on your site or in the daily e-mails: If you recognize a flaw or a gap in your approach or framework just after the case interview is over, is there any value in addressing this in [...]

Question: Last week I had a McKinsey interview and didn’t pass. I know that it was my fault because I didn’t practice much. Anyway, I received feedback from my interviewer. He said that they liked me, especially my communication, leadership skills and my ideas about cases, but the answers were not structured enough. When I [...]

Question: I just had a question about local differences between BCG offices. I am planning to attend interviews in BCG (European Office). I think most of the information in your website and other similar resources are aimed at the U.S. context. Do you know if there is any difference between Europe and the U.S. version [...]
