I came in as an experienced hire and never did in-person case prep before my actual interviews. I scheduled a ton of mock interviews on https://www.caseinterviewpartner.com and moved on to mock cases in the phone with MBB connections in my network once I was comfortable. That help?

Thanks for the input! Can I dm you?

Yes. While “what you say” is definitely very important, body language & delivery won’t go unnoticed. Some people don’t need practice in that as much as others. But, I would air on the side of caution when interviewing for a potentially life changing job where the bar is widely known to be so high. I flunked all my interviews with mbb in undergrad and then got one 2 years after working.. first time around, <10 cases.. second time ~25. Everyone is different though so please don’t read too much into these numbers, just trying to offer an anecdotal data point.

Well I’m looking for people if you’re in nyc, dm me! I personally don’t think it makes a huge difference since most of what you’re judged on is what you say and how you say it

Yes. Virtual sessions sucked for me.

I'm prepping for BCG first rounds, <2 YOE and going for Associate. Based in Boston. Happy to connect if this sounds like a good fit for you C2 and anybody else!

Hey guys, I just found this group and I’m hoping for some guidance/advice! I’m hoping to get into one of the Big 4s or MBB and finally got a few referrals once joining FB.
