I applied and practiced a little for the case studies once I had an interview scheduled at BCG. It was relatively easy and I found them fun. Landed the job I wanted within 3 weeks of applying. There’s no need to memorize specific structures. You’ll never get a case that matches perfectly so it’s better to develop a critical thinking approach to solve through in a logical fashion.

Best of luck and have fun!
