BCG is good in that they appreciate their candidates education, and offer an intermediate role between an associate and a consultant for those joining them with a PhD. Got through to the interviews onsite for three different assessments, one was a live case study with a current consultant, one standard arithmetic test, and one case study on paper format.

Interview Details –
I've applied through the London office for a position either in London or in Germany. I got an interview a three weeks later in the London office, where I was interviewed by consultants from Germany and Austria for the German office. The first interview consisted of three rounds: twice a case-study (25 min), a personal fit assessment (15 min) and questions for the interviewer (5 min). Then you have to sit a 45-min-long online case study. The fit questions were the typical ones (tell me about yourself, weaknesses/strengths, teamwork experience, why should we hire you? etc.). The cases were about M&A and a profit case. The online test was to assess how you work on your own. It is an interactive case study, where you have to interpret graphs etc.
The interviewers were nice and professional. However one of them seemed to be first quite disinterested but was more engaged towards the end. It was a good chat altogether and the feedback, I could request, was very personal and constructive.
