In a final round interview with two case interviews, do you need to ace both to pass?

Which firm?

Any of the MBBs

No for mck or bcg Source: have both mck and bcg offers after doing mediocre in a case for each

Ok — this is really comforting to hear. I typically do very well in half of my cases, and in the other half, I do just OK. I was really questioning the likelihood that I hit the ball out of the park twice, especially under pressure. I have been preparing so, so much, but interview day anxiety really makes my mind stop working

Yeah I just got into one of the mbb and was told you can't get dinged by anyone

Well, I’m not questioning that. I’m questioning whether or not doing “good/OK/decent” on a case is considered a ding, if you did very well on the other case.

It’s doubtful you’ll only have 2 cases at mck final round. Typically 3-4. That said you can bomb one and still do ok. Source - I bombed a case and still work here 😂

Oh. How long is each case!
