If you get rejected from MBB, how long (if at all) does one have to wait before applying again? Is there some set lockout period?

Ms is currently a year in the US

How often are people successful upon trying again?

A year is fine but to truly stand out, I would say when you have some sort of marked growth you can speak to. I was in a similar boat, picked up a shit ton of knowledge on certain topics then re-interviewed and had a growth story to tell.

I applied 3 times in 3 years, didn’t really get any crazy experience, just got better at interviewing

Yeah M1 super worth it, going from boutique to BCG is a different world

I’m interviewing at two great tech companies and am in the last rounds of interviews at both, meeting with the execs. Both companies have expressed that they want to hire me regardless if the execs agree and are willing to find a place for me. Both have great company culture and benefits, and both are willing to meet my salary requirements. I wish I could work at both of them! If you were in this position, what other factors, besides the obvious would help you make a choice between the two?

Quitting before finalizing offers?

I’m at post onsite and negotiation stage at a couple places but it may take another month or 2 due to either hiring freezes or general slow processes.

I want to quit now to go on vacations that I held off during prep. Does it make much difference when I negotiate offers? Like if my upcoming unvested RSU would be (partially) matched, and they find out I quit somehow, is it no longer matched? Other potential snags?

Already burned most of my PTO interviewing.
