How far in advance of start date does BCG usually confirm background check etc cleared? Want to make sure everything is tied down before giving notice.

Background check starts about 2 weeks or so after you receive your offer. It might take longer during holidays/peak recruiting season. They'll do the check again if more than 6 months have passed since the first background check, but it's all straightforward and done by Hireright. I didn't get an email once the check was completed, you can check with your recruiter to make sure.

Just completed background check ahead of March start date and took 2 weeks to clear. Make sure to be proactive and upload documents/evidence that you feel may be useful before they request (i.e. college transcripts, payslips etc)

I’ve received and submitted three 6-12 month contracts for~$55/hr in the last 3 business days. In the last month I’ve had around 15 recruiters in my inboxes, and I’ve applied to ~100 of jobs on LinkedIn easy apply. I’ve cussed out three recruiters, I’ve taken 5 two coding tests — passed 2 - then got rejected. Other 3 I failed.
I am numb.. I don’t even know which recruiters to take seriously anymore. Holy shit. Im just signing contracts away every week day at this point and hoping they stick but
