Also, that was not a very nice comment. You’re sort of cementing my view of BCG as my last choice.

Don’t take an N of 1 as indicative of an entire firm. Honest answer is you’re right last years off cycle hiring was crazy, and it would make sense for it to be less aggressive this year. We’ve basically doubled the size of our internship classes so next year incoming should be a lot of people. Will off cycle hiring be as wild as last year? Stands to reason maybe less so, but at the same time attrition is still high I think, so there’ll probs still be more off cycle hiring than usual. *im not part of recruiting so this is all my own speculation

Missed the low bar last year, did ya?

funnylikesmart

No slowdown just yet, but last year was exceptional (>35% growth) so I doubt we’d keep up this pace for another full year The bar for offers wasn’t lowered, but the bar for getting an interview was (i.e. funnel was widened). So I’d recommend you just apply (with a referral is best) and focus on smashing the case!

Dude, you have to be the same person who was asking about being off cycle and thus having an easier process at BCG earlier Just so your interview and if you get offered great if you don’t, move on. Who cares about the relative bar in the end? You’re wasting mental energy for no benefit on this

Thanks BCG4. This comment helped me feel the most better out of everyone. I think I’m taking it too seriously. If I don’t get the offer, just move on. I needed to hear that.

As someone who has been very closely tied to recruiting over the last year, I can assure you that the bar has not lowered, despite significantly increased hiring. We’ve just expanded the profiles we’re willing to take to include more experts and increased the applicant pool. This is likely to continue for the next several years, though likely not at 2021levels… and the bar for getting in will not move. All that said, if you feel prepared, please apply. Don’t expect it to be any less rigorous, but by all means, give it a go! We’re always looking for great talent.

Had my McK interview for the Houston office earlier this month, and I swear it was so easy - all three cases. Feels like the bar has been lowered but I’m not complaining

The purpose of the case is not to be difficult…

Certain offices are still as hard as ever (London, NY etc). But others, the bar has certainly been lowered to fill the growth demand
