Consulting

Had 2 case interviews today. Flubbed the math on the first, and killed the second. My anxiety is now through the roof as I ask myself why I continue to put myself through this type of agony as I wait to see if I move on to R2. 😭

You got this! I was in a similar situation in a recent R1, and my strong performance on the second case carried me through. Good luck OP!
