Ex-boozer - don’t go to booz after your mba. Won’t get the returns necessary if you went to a top 15 mba program.

Because BAH=staff aug not strategy

Consulting Club has a ton of resources. There are a bunch of books you can read. Find a friend who can teach you and then self study plus buddy cases. All it requires is practice.

@C1, while Booz is not know for strategy, we do have a small team in Commercial that would rival those of MBB. That being said, MCK and BCG are diversifying and doing more and more implementation with their sub-brands BCG Platinion and MCK New Ventures...🤔

Students from my school recommended I don't start practicing casing until school starts, because the Consulting Club will take care of that. Would any of you recommend that same advice?

like

Don’t start cases until school is right. You’ll only learn bad habits at this point. Start studying logic and how to structure problems. Having a better understanding of the underlying structure of a couple industries will give you a better frame.

like

Find classmates from the firm(s) you're interested in and ask for their help. They can run practice cases and mock interviews with you and provide useful feedback.

Booz was the only firm where I didn’t have a case interview

I had to case to get onto strategy at Booz. I transferred from Ops to strategy.

Agree with SC1, do some self study/practice (my fav resource was Case in Point), practice with some good 2nd years, and then find a buddy to consistently practice with. You learn a lot from giving a case too so definitely practice both.
