I have ADHD and it is affecting my family life. I forget commitments I make to my wife literally SECONDS after making them, and it is so defeating to be so consistently unreliable. At work I have enough systems set up to help me keep up with my deadlines etc, but struggle to find solutions for home life. Any tips? I am not medicated yet, but am not against starting. I just don’t know if it helps throughout the day or only for a few hours. TIA 😭

What is fastest way to improve both structured communication and thinking? Any helpful books or drills?
It’s the one consistent feedback I get while casing , “to be more structured” I’m there for math ability , business logic , creativity.


I’ve been working at one or the other big tech since the last 8 years across business roles. While still enjoying this - i am keen to join one of the MBB in the next 12-18 months. Any advice is appreciated as last time i tried to enter this space was when i finished University and never got through.

Is it unheard of to go from B4 consulting to MBB without an MBA? At what level are the chances of success highest? I have 3 yrs WE. Is it really that black and white(get an mba or bust)? Anything you can share on this front would be a huge help!


Do MBB also consult companies like Google, Apple, goldman Sachs, etc on strategy topics? I seem to never have heared...😐


How does one get referrals - particularly if you aren't from a target uni? Feels a bit forceful asking people you network with, if they'd be comfortable doing this at the end of your conversation.
Also are there any restrictions in place for each firm (e.g the referrer must have worked with the candidate previously, etc)?


MBB offices for tech cases, low COL?
Currently working in tech, leaving for MBA ideally followed by MBB. Thinking ahead because of pre MBA events and long term partner. Paying sticker for MBA with loans, partner in school for 2-3 years after MBA. Which offices should I consider to build quick NW/pay off debt, build strong network in tech in/outside the firm, provide QOL similar to my unconstrained choices (LA or NYC)?


Any BCG folks or individuals who recently received an offer willing to run through a case or speak to their experiences? Have the final round coming up in a couple of weeks


I've been working in management consulting for the last few years (incl working at Big 4). I studied at LSE, performed well at work and academics, and have a strong enough CV to make it through the door at MBBs. I now have an upcoming interview with one of the MBBs but I'm very nervous. I feel like I'm not cut out for the MBBs and will never be able to 'crack' the case study interview because I'm just not good /smart enough. Any advice on how best to build the confidence and take myself forward?

Hey guys,

I have a second round (out of 3) with Bain coming up. Overall, scored quite high and was just told to be more answer driven, which I am working on.

Did a couple of cases but really feel burnt, no real added values in the ones I do now.

Any insights or advice on what to prepare for round 2? What are my chances if the first round went well with the Consultants?

Its in Europe FYI. I've also nailed the prep for fit, with different situations in a STAR format.


Did anyone interview with BCG last Friday?
