Hey Consultants. I just might have a Bain interview coming up in a few weeks. So far I have had 3 R1s of the other two MBB but got dinged. I don’t know what I am doing wrong but I need help as I call this the “last dance” so far I have done 40+ live cases with MBB consultants.

Did you get feedback from previous interviewers? Those should be quite specific and actionable

1st McKinsey: A disaster, I was rusty a lot of feedback 2nd McKinsey: I didn’t provide next level insight in the chart BCG: My feedback call is next week

Anything on math/quant vs structuring? For next level of insight, always ask yourself “why”

Not really. Quant is my strongest area. However, I had issues wrapping my head around the maths logic for BCG

Is there anyway to just practice how to draw insights from case interview like exhibits

I have left Deloitte after accepting another offer ( waiting to start the new role and taking time off between) . Now another dream role reached out to me for an interview. Should I tell them I am no longer with Deloitte if the HR asks? They had my old resume. Has anyone been though this situation? My main dilemma is I don’t know what to say why I left the job since the main reason was the new offer.
