How long is it reasonable to push back MBB interview dates? I have a first round interview at the end of this month but am in the middle of a very intense project. Is pushing the interview back by 2 weeks unreasonable?

I pushed my final round by 8 weeks because of a project, it’s not an issue, you just may not have your pick of exactly when, depends on interview cycles

Not an issue! I was able to make it work and did it literally the day before and it was fine

Thank you all! I was just able to push my interviews back by 2 weeks no problem!

Was forced out of a firm after more than a decade last year. Started my own law firm. Today I got a new client who called my old firm and fired one of my ex colleagues to come with me and told them they were coming to my firm. The colleague and I were close, but this is business and I don’t feel bad. Although I have been acquiring unhappy clients of my old firm for a while now, this was the first who was on a current retainer with the former firm. Life is much better on my own. :)
