Hi everyone! I need your help. I wasn’t looking for a new job but an interview at McKinsey just fell in my lap. I work at a big four firm and have never gone through MBB interviews before. I only have about two weeks to prepare. I’m going to do as much work to prepare as I possibly can but if anyone could help suggest a two week study plan that would be so helpful!

Def try to push it back. CraftingCases is pretty solid.

Thank you! What is reasonable to reschedule to?

Hello. I can help do some mock interviews if you're interested.

Get a study partner or tutor and practice every night. Take a week of PTO and do cases nonstop?

I don’t think I can take PTO with such short notice without pissing everyone off but that would be ideal! Any recs on how to find a tutor ASAP?

Crafting cases, rocketblocks, prep lounge

Ask to push it back for sure, you won’t be penalized for it!

Honestly I interviewed off cycle so for me it was literally whenever I felt ready. You’re more on cycle so I would say ask your recruiter what seems reasonable! Give her an honest estimate (and add in padding), and see what he or she says, and just emphasize that you’re flexible

Same boat here. Have my recruiter call in a week and going to ask for an additional month to prepare (workload has been 65+ hour weeks the last month, so I need more time). I recommend taking a week to do Crafting Cases, and then start practicing individual building blocks from there!

In the same boat, Big 4 and I’m working pretty long hours. My phone case is coming up soon and I’m nervous.

I'm in the same boat as you. I have two weeks until a McKinsey poweround! I've been practicing two cases a day which I find very helpful, and have been doing some googling to learn and identify tips for success, focus areas, and applicable frameworks

My consulting offer case package

McKinsey let me delay my first round by a couple months, ask the recruiter!
