    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (Boston, MA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Quick-case study assessments. I would have preferred one-to-ones but it was an okay process. I learnt a lot from it. The case-studies are tough, so prepare well in advance, in fact start preparing before you apply.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company.

    Interview

    Went through 2 rounds of phone interviews then went in for an in-person interview. The in-person interview included an assessment, which the interviewer scored and said I got 100% on, which isn't very common according to the interviewer. I felt that the interviews went very well but unfortunately was rejected due to my "skills and experience" not matching what they're looking for. If that's the case, I'm not sure why I was interviewed to begin with or put through multiple stages of interviews, especially for an intern position which is meant to give experience.

    Interview

    First round interview is made up of a personal experience section (Tell me about a time when you encountered difficulties working in a team? What did you do to overcome them?), a case, and then time for questions. Most difficult part is the case, make sure to do live practices with as many people as you can to prepare!
