@M1 yeah I am willing to start over as a 1st year BA. Was put on the keep in touch program at McKinsey and heard it gives me a high chance of getting an interview if I apply again after a year so wanted to pursue that opportunity.

You can apply anytime. But you gotta present a compelling case and pass the bar. Your year won’t give you seniority.

Now. Really. Or at some point in your first year when you feel you have amassed a good set of projects in your CV that you can talk about

@S1 I guess I will get on that - any recommendations on how many projects would be a good number before applying?

OP - go for it! Prepare to talk about your growth...!

I was also put in the keep in touch program. How does it benefit candidates? Figuring out if I want to lateral, as well.

@TASA1 I’ve heard from a few people that you are very likely to get an interview if you apply again in an year - but you’ll still have to show growth and kill the cases.
