Have an upcoming interview with McKinsey in a few weeks. Strategy& contacted me for first round next week. Not sure if I should postpone Strategy& and focus on McKinsey now. Either way I’m not prepared enough yet and next week seems too soon, any thoughts on how I should go about this?

I'd use S& to have a hands-on practice for McKinsey. Tbh I did this, but used RB and Kearney for MBB + Oliver.

The prep for both the interviews are very similar. If you don’t think you’re going to be prepared next week, try to push it out a little bit. And both of these are great firms so put in your best foot forward into both!!

Yeah that’s true, thanks! I’ll see how it goes in a few days and maybe push it out a few days.

The prep and interviews are similar. You should do both.
