I found the TBD to be quite similar to just any brainstorming or problem solving session (especially in consulting). It’s helpful to get to know the question and research beforehand (also practiced my 1min pitch), but didn’t really do mocks beyond that.

Good to know, thank you!

I participated in 1 mock TBD interview session set up by an MBA consultant. Most MBA consultancy companies set up mock TBD interviews for Wharton applicants that received an interview invite. Thought this gave me a real legs up during the actual interview. But it’s expensive so I only purchased 1 session (~1-1.5 hrs)

Any tips? Still waiting on a decision, but want to make sure I get ahead of it if I get an interview. 🙂

Hello Everyone! Had a discussion yesterday regarding “claw backs” being included in a policy for sponsorship if the new employee leaves before 3 years. It was a declining percentage over a three year period. My POV was that it wasn’t something I’ve ever done and didn’t seem like they were sure of the hire they were making. I get wanting to save costs but at the same time doesn’t feel inclusive or welcoming. Thoughts? Have you done this or seen it work? Thanks!
