What shall I do: the senior consultant I am working with is extremely condescending and borderline rude in the way he communicates with me (granted he is very qualified, but still rude e.g. he laughed at my input in a KOL interview...during the interview). It has been ongoing for ~3 weeks now and is seriously affecting my motivation on this engagements and hence, the quality of my output. Any tips on how to handle/proceed with this?

Hi I'm going for an internal position switch to strategy consultant in advanced analytics. The internal switch requires a normal interview 30' talk about motivations, strengths, ... And a case interview. Some competitors search for 'creative' ways of tackling the first minutes of the 30' talk by creating eg. a video where others present the candidate. How is this perceived by hiring managers, and if perceived good, what other ways are great? Thx

Is hiring an admissions consultant worth it if you have below average stats (~3.5 gpa, 324 GRE) while applying to a top 5 school (e.g. HBS) but have a good story (I was the first person from my small public high school to attend Dartmouth, athlete, tap danced competitively even though I’m a guy, lots of volunteer work, went through Y Combinator, and built a company from my basement to a $30M+ valuation). In round 1 I got a MIT interview, don’t know how it went because it seemed short.

I did my interview with kellogg last and I think I did well. The interviewer gave me good feedback throughout the interview saying my accomplishments were respectable, my answers robust, that I came off as very authentic, that she could tell I hadn't rehearsed my answers with an admissions consultant, and that I had faced challenges in life that most people applying to bschool hadn't. I heard next my application + interview "score" will be reviewed by someone who hasn't already seen my app
