I just went through this process and if can vary. It sounds like we have a similar level of experience but different functional expertise. I had a ~20 min phone screen with a Principal (no case) and then one in person decision round with 3 different Partner interviews. Each of those included a short case. But because I was more senior there was a lot more focus on experience and fit once I showed I had the ability to nail the cases. The cases were much shorter than the typical MBA cases and once I showed I knew what I was doing they quickly moved on.

2 interviews each round, 2 rounds total. 5-7 mins behavioral (1-2 questions) and then the case. Likely with Principal or PL’s for the first, Partners for the second. You’ll hear 1-2 business days after interviewing

This is correct, although sometimes can be longer than 1-2 days

Every interview is a case interview. First 10-15 minutes behavioral and 30 minutes for a case. Not sure about number of interviews. I went through the campus hiring process, which involved two first round and three final round interviews. Good luck.

I had phone interview, then two in person rounds with 2 interviews in the 1st and 3 interviews in the 2nd round. Got an offer on the spot.

Did you have cases too D1?
