Hi everyone, hope you are doing well. I applied to BCG and received an email from them telling me I was on the waitlist for interviews.

Do any one of you think they can help me or connect me to someone willing to help from the inside? I applied to Atlanta, Boston, and Miami. I am on a F1 visa which makes things harder, MBB being kind of my only options.
