Hello fishes. Curious to know your thoughts on case prep program like management consulted? Has anyone been successful landing an offer from an mbb or boutique firm after going through their services? It seems a bit pricy for me and I was hoping to get insights before spending $$$$

I used Management Consulted and really liked it. Got offers from Deloitte and EYP and it's the only resource I used. Bought the Consulting Case Interview Bootcamp – Online ($300) and 1 hour mock interview ($200). I went with MC because I like the style of their YouTube videos and knew I needed help with casing math and they have a lot of resources specifically for that in the Bootcamp. I would ask yourself what your learning style is (self study or want a structured program), how you like the MC YouTube videos, and what specifically you want to work on. That should help you decide which program to invest in and at what level. Happy to answer additional q's.

Thanks a lot for taking the time to reply HOS1. I’m on the same boat with you as I really liked the format of their videos as well. Now that you mention it it’s true that I learn faster in a structured program so it will probably make sense to invest in it. I may get their boot camp and just skip on prime day for the sake of knowledge 😊

Definitely improved my chances - legit had no idea what a case interview was when I started exploring options. Management Consulted helped me feel confident and taught me how to deliver answers in a structured way.

Great! Feel free to DM if other q’s.

The question you should be asking is not whether anyone has been successful landing an offer after going through their program, it's whether anyone thinks that their program improved their chances at landing an offer

Yes M1. That’s what I meant. Thanks for catching. So did it improve your chances?

I only plan on staying in consulting for about 2 more years then off for an MBA. Would it be more worth it to take a level and pay raise at a different big4 moving to senior level rather than going to associate/analyst level at MBB? These are my two choices at the moment. I want to position myself best for post MBA jobs in industry. Salary will def be lower at MBB compared to the senior level at big4 so not sure if it’s worth the trade off in experience.
