Yes! I had a super day and interviewed with 4 senior members. 1 EM, 2 partners, and 1 OMP. This is after the solve game and resume screen. Interviews lasted 6 hours in total cuz the interviewers and I had awesome conversations and I really liked the experience. Expect each one to take about 1 hr though, 15 min get to know you and get to know them, 20 min PEI, 20 min case, and about 10 min for any questions at the end. Any more specific questions? This format is relatively universal across McK.

Hope this helps: https://www.mckinsey.com/careers/interviewing

Thank you! I read somewhere that the solve game is only administered to undergraduate students. So, that’s good to know. Did they ask you questions specific to your field of study? Otherwise, is there anything you wish you had done differently to prepare? Congrats on a great interview!
