Failed MBB case interview so hard the guy started giving me casing tips mid interview. Practiced about 20 cases. Friend’s sister is a music major and got an offer with 0 case studying, said cases were just common sense and logic. When did you realise you just weren’t smart?

Question for 🐠- do your firms have employee groups with religion as the anchor? I had a coworker shared his desktop and I caught a MS teams channel called Jewish ERG. (An ERG is an Employee Resource Group, think employee run support group but company sponsored) I don't think I've ever seen one for Hindus. Curious if other Big4s or MBB have them.

I’m being promoted to S1 in October and I’m planning on going back to school for an MBA degree in about 2 years or so. My goal is to get a consulting job at MBB. TIA!
