I was so nervous before my BCG interviews too, and found out there was no need at all. Because I wouldn't get the offer anyway

Not a troll post. Sure, will try to prepare a solid POV

Prepare as much as you can, be personable and somewhat honest. If you're genuine, that helps too if your interviewer is on the same page. Good luck buddy!

Then you get the right attitude. Go for it!

Just because their pedigree is in a "higher tier" firm doesn't necessitate their experience to be better. Maybe they only do strategy and want someone with implementation experience to round out the engagement. Or other way around. Maybe your firm has a better niche practice / service line the target firm is getting into.

I’m in a confusing situation and would appreciate guidance - I had an Investment Bank reach out to me a few days ago and we’ve been scheduling “Intro” calls. They’re not specifically using the word “interview” in the conversation. I got yet another intro call scheduled with upper management and honestly don’t know how to prepare? Any tips on how to navigate the situation?
