What kind of case goes on for almost 3 hours???

That can’t possibly be a case study the whole time with one interviewer. I’d ask the recruiter for more details

165 minutes???

Mine was 30 mins.

OP - We look for logic structure, good assumptions, data / fact orientation, etc. - everything you would expect in a rigorous case interview. Will push you on public math (but just a bit), challenge your assumptions, probe for logic flaws, test for coachability. Depending on your level, we will push you to move to "how would you structure that workstream / project?" All-in-all, this is a very structured case interview that we put everyone through so that we can have a really balanced perspective on relative strengths and weaknesses. Most report it is actually way better than some random verbal one. Prep a bit on overall strategy frameworks and approach it like you would any new case or client discussion. Remember, the others in there enjoy strategy consulting, you want to do it, and this is some time to address a simplified strategy conundrum. You will be fine.

A question for recruiters. When you call someone asking them if they are interested in an opportunity and then ask them for a technical interview the next day and they ask for an extension does it impact their application? Recently it has happened to me twice that recruiter calls, he has my details and asks if I’m interested and then ask for same day or next day interview. And when I apologize since I actually have job to take care as well they just ghost me. Is this something that’s normal?
