Hope you all are enjoying the holidays. Long story short, I am studying abroad this spring (leaving in early February) slightly before the final round interviews are scheduled to take place. This is after OCR at my school for first rounds. Would MBB (and maybe some smaller firms, Parthenon, OC&C) do accelerated final round interviews for candidates or is this unheard of? If anyone can share any insight into their own (or someone else's) experiences that would be awesome. Thanks for your help guys.

Definitely not unheard of, reach out to HR and they will bring you in early (most likely)

Thanks for the advice! When would be the best time to let them know about my circumstances? Before the entire process, after receiving a first round interview, or after having the first round interview (likely in mid/late January).


I'd bring it up at the end of the first round interview before you leave... after you ask them a few questions, thank them and ask what the timeframe will be and then mention your situation.
