Interview Question

Associate Consultant Interview Rome (Italy)

Nothing was really unexpected, but I got off on the wrong

  track on the case.. and swan dove off the cliff from there when I messed up some very simple math, I think I included two more zeros than I should have. We both knew it was over when the guy basically chuckled at me because it was amusing to him how off base the answer could, in fact, be.

Interview Answer

1 Answer


Although we both knew the outcome, I got a rejection email within 10 minutes of leaving the interview. Skip forward one year. Apply to both McK and BCG and no other firms (again).
Outcome? 2011- Applied BCG- rejected after case Applied McK- did not receive invite
2012- Reapplied to both firms exclusively, again
Heard back within a week from each.
Impact: Interview- BCG, Interview- McKinsey , back to back

Forward projection: Offers will be secured from both firms. I will have trouble deciding, and then go with McKinsey and company. Obviously.
