    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group (Boston, MA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    2 rounds, 5 interviews
    Each interview with 15 min fit, 25 min business case, 5 min questions
    Interviewers are very friendly and willing to help with the case. Critical to have good "stories" for the fit portion. Case interview felt more like a discussion but it is important to "drive" the case to a recommendation and not just wait for the interviewer to ask questions.

    case interviews- first round has 2 cases on campus and the second round has two cases- in the office. Basically you have to crack the cases.

    Also, there is a focus on behavioral- tell me about a time when- that kind of questions.
