Depends on what level you are interviewing at. I interviewed at EM level, 1 of the 3 partner rounds did not have a case. The other 2 cases were situational cases, with minimal quant evaluation, that role play how you would structure a project as an EM given a specific case. The question would be something like - Imagine you are an EM and have a workshop to KO the project on Monday. How would you prepare for the workshop and what are the areas you would want to explore during the WS? Imagine you have 2 resources on this project, how would you allocate them across the workstreams - 1 being an experienced associate and the other a fresh graduate?

Yeah sure

Mine were pretty similar to my first round, with more on the spot brainstorming. Also more chance of a public/non profit from what I’ve seen (didn’t happen with mine)

What’s spot brainstorming? Brainstorming without giving you some time to gather your thoughts?
