McKinsey

Field Report: Just a brief note to say thank you for your emails. I actually didn’t use the LOMS program – or your frameworks! By far, the most valuable thing (for me) was the insight into the mindset of consultants and interviewers, which is what your emails provided. It affords a real sense of perspective [...]

Email: I had my final round interviews with McKinsey last week, and found out I was successful. I’ll hopefully be starting later on this year as a Business Analyst in the [Western Europe] office. I wanted to drop you an email just to say thanks for all the resources you’ve provided to help people with [...]

Question: What is the policy for reapplying to McKinsey after two years? Would a candidate be at a disadvantage if they previously applied, and didn’t make it past the Problem Solving Test? Would that reflect badly on my new application? I applied two and a half years ago, and received an invitation for the PST. [...]

Question: I think your site is wonderful, and I really appreciate the work that you do. Yesterday I got the call from McKinsey and BCG and both have accepted me for positions.  Now it comes down to weighing the options! Thanks so much! P.S. Do you have any thoughts on McKinsey vs. BCG? My Reply: [...]

Email: I interviewed with both McKinsey and BCG today and they both made me offers, despite me telling them I was as likely to pursue graduate studies as I was to take up a job with them. I just wanted to thank you for the material you’ve put up on the website. It helped me [...]

Question: I received an offer to join McKinsey & Company in (Asia Office) as a Business Analyst, and I am absolutely thrilled. I would like to thank you for all the useful materials on your website and for the Look Over My Shoulder® program, which I purchased. The program has been extremely useful in polishing [...]

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: I have my first round interview with McKinsey, Africa soon and unfortunately I first discovered your site just a few days ago. I have tried to go through the entire video but this has been tough, given that I have a full time job and I spend four hours driving to and from work [...]

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 [...]
