Definitely an advantage for high performers, but it still baffles me that you csn have credible managers with 2-3 YOE total after undergrad.

Sure, but no one else does this, and Mckinseys talent pool is pretty similar to BCG and Bains.

It’s only really a 1 year lead and most people don’t get it. By the same token Bain has an extra step between manager roles and thus is slower but doesn’t really impact overall appeal. Doesn’t really make much of a difference in choosing for most.

Yes, and it does

This is unique to the US also

Yep

Yes it’s an advantage—I think it does actually make an impact for some people choosing between firms. High performers make EM in 2 years. Most BAs (who want to) make EM in 3.
