On an MBB case R1 interview, interviewer asked if I had info on future communication and I just said "Just finished R1 and R2 is going to come presumably based on R1 interviews", potentially implying that I thought nailed the case. I had not. I knew I'd bombed it. 😅😂🤦‍♂️ I literally found a way to bomb again in the last 30 seconds.

I think you are being too hard on yourself. I would not have taken what you said in a bad way. Good luck!

Lol hopefully they move you to round 2 based on your likability

Honestly I feel like I did great on the two behavioral (PEIs) and the technical experience interview but those last 30 seconds definitely tanked my likeability for sure I just hope my interviewer sees this so he knows I know I could've done better haha

I had my onsite 5 weeks ago, and recruiter reached out last week saying I cleared Hiring Committee, and that he’s waiting for VP approval before we move on to compensation talk. How long does the VP approval typically take? And what is the probability of rejection at this stage? Also, how many more review stages are there before I am made a written offer (assuming I clear VP approval)? Thanks!

I have minor generalized anxiety. Lately, I’ve had worse anxiety than normal, and as a result, I’m taking my second mental health day in a row. I didn’t tell my firm that it was a mental health day, I just told them I was sick with non-COVID symptoms. None of the partners I work for objected or said anything negative, but I’m now getting worried that they’re somehow going to find out it was just a mental health day instead of physical illness, and that it will somehow bite me in the ass . . .
