McK 🐠 - what are the differences between Round 1 (EM and associate partner interviewers) and Round 2 (partner interviewers). Recruiter assures me there is no difference with cases or structure of interviews but hearing mixed messages. Would appreciate any insight!

Yeah Round 1 and 2 are the same. Also Round 1 is unlikely to have APs, but Round 2 is almost guaranteed to have them.

Lol I got an EM and AP Round 1, and have all partners Round 2. Thank you for the info!

Make sure you brush up your fit!! I would say balance slightly shifts towards fit

I think that MIGHT be a Mckinseyism. I would say on the whole by the partner round they kinda assume you can case…I’ve had two offers from T2 but I admit they aren’t MBB. Both my partner rounds were more relaxed on case, more heavy on fit time wise and I got the impression all four of them (between two companies) didn’t care for a structured case

Exactly the same. Our interviews are very, very structured, and deviating at all from the process will get you in hot water. I’m an EM who interviews both for first rounds and during power rounds and the process is identical.

How exactly would you prep differently if they were? (I can’t speak to your geo or circumstance, but they’re the same in my part of the firm)
