I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Boston Consulting Group in February 2011.
Interview Details – 1st round was on campus and consisted of two back to back 45 minute interviews. 15 min was fit 30 min was a case. Both cases were relatively qualitative and the math was very simple. 2nd round occurred a week later in the office I requested. Same format, two 45 min interviews. Cases were a little more vague, but still very qualitative. After a received an offer, I got flown out to spend a weekend with the office with a bunch of free meals and activities. They definitely sell themselves well.

Interview Details – My interview lasted one day only (a morning to be exact) and it consisted of a personal interview about my resume that was followed by a one-on-one case study interview. The case study interview was very similar to that included in the emailed packet (you'll get a packet to prepare you for the case study interview). The interviewers were nice, I think I did ok on the personal portion but struggled to do the quantitative reasoning on the case study part since I didn't have a calculator and I'm not a business student.

Interview Details – First round: Got two interviews, one with a project leader, the other with a consultant. Both were 45 minutes, 10-15 minutes behavioural, the rest case.

Both behavioural was about my resume.
