My friend just interviewed with McKinsey at LBS and apparently her interviewer took over the case after 2 minutes and started solving it himself 😂 She’s a bit confused if this is normal. Comments?

I have a year at Accenture under my belt but know a very senior MD at McKinsey who I think likes me enough to refer me. Do ACN people ever go to McKinsey or is this just unrealistic?

How big are gaps between McKinsey -> BCG -> Bain in terms of relationships with CEOs and other top executives? I’m trying to get a sense of which consultancy gets the first call (and keeps/wins bids).

If given an offer, would you be less likely to work for McKinsey now than 6 months ago (ie before all the headlines started)? If so, much less (ie i Probably wouldn’t now) or slightly less
