I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at William Blair in April 2012.
Interview Details –
Initial contact was made with on campus recruiting. They selected me for an on-campus interview. This initial interview consisted of equal parts fit and technical questions.
The next step was a Super Day at their office in Chicago. This consisted of 8 back to back interviews with bankers ranging from Analyst up to Directors. Some of these interviews were all technical, some were all fit, and some were mixed.
I found out I got the offer the next day.
Interview Question – You have 100 balls (50 black balls and 50 white balls) and 2 buckets. How do you divide the balls into the two buckets so as to maximize the probability of selecting a black ball if 1 ball is chosen from 1 of the buckets at random? View Answer
