    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at L.E.K. Consulting in November 2019.


    First Round: Conducted at my university, 2 thirty minute qualitative & quantitative interviews.
    Quantitative was basic market-sizing questions, then a couple behavioral questions.
    Qualitative was very conversational, I had to add my own structure and reasoning to drive the case.

    Second Round: 3 thirty minute interviews at L.E.K. office.
    One was behavioral questions + market sizing question
    One was market sizing, with a bit of case and strategy afterwards
    One was general behavioral questions and "what do I do for fun?"
