McKinsey PSTI think I may have screwed myself on the McKinsey PST I took recently. I was under the impression that it was similar to the Quant test that Oliver Wyman gives, in which wrong answers were penalized. Thinking this way, I left some questions blank. Yesterday, however, I was told by a friend that... 2 years 8 months
Oliver Wyman 1st Round InterviewHey everybody! I'm a longtime lurker, first time poster. I have a first round interview coming up with Oliver Wyman GMC for an entry-level consultant position. It's a 30 minute, over-the-phone case interview. (FYI, I have also applied to OW FS, but that app hasn't been responded to yet.) What... 2 years 9 months

How early can you (reasonably) start doing...Assuming MBB/tier 2 shops, most likely junior year. Many shops have sophomore programs, but they're overwhelmingly for URM. I think Deloitte has a sophomore internship for tech, however. 2 months 1 week
Undergrad Looking at Options for IB! (USC...I'll take the other position. I'd choose Howard over USC. Why? Because, while there might be fewer spots available, there are also far fewer students gunning for those spots, and honestly, your competition will probably not be as fierce. I have friends that went to Howard, and they are all doing... 2 months 4 weeks
Ask Me Anything: First-Year at MBBI wouldn't necessarily agree with the above. I know many MBB consultants that went into the same roles as people from BBs. Some cases require the same type of modelling that a BB analyst would use. How much in the way of modelling do you think a BB analyst learns in the few months they are on the... 4 months 3 days
Deloitte S&O Jocks & GeeksWell, the guys that work chiefly in strategy mainly came from the Monitor acquisition, so I'd say they're slightly higher in the hierarchy. Not in any real way, I've heard the Monitor guys are integrated pretty well, but just in terms of difficulty in getting on certain projects. Strategy is where... 4 months 4 days
Accenture Systems Integration: Overtime pay?You'll be billing 40-45 hours/week, because that is generally what firms set their project budgets on. You might be working a lot more than that, but I highly doubt you'll be billing actuals if you're working 55-60 client hours per week. There are exceptions, and note that I say client work hours.... 4 months 1 week
Did I just screw my chances? Send a followup email saying, "Awwwww shit. My bad." All will be forgiven. 4 months 1 week
Specializing in an Industry at MBBTo my knowledge, except for McK, you come in as a generalist. Through your network and possible expertise, you develop a specialty. I know people out of MHA programs and MBA programs in healthcare that ended up specializing in energy and tech. 5 months 1 day
Deloitte S&O Internship...Just apply to S&O? The processes are run separately, to my knowledge. I have engineering and Computer Science major friends that went to S&O/more strategy consulting roles versus going to tech consulting, which is where their resumes looked like they were leading. 5 months 1 week
Case Interview FrameworkNo frameworks is what worked for me. Learn a few, but just to understand the thought process and structure behind them. When you're not worried about sticking to a rigid framework, you have much more freedom to change things on the fly or adapt to new info from your interviewer. I once had a... 5 months 1 week
Salaries in Tech and Management Consulting at Big...I think this is because, at the majority of Big 4 firms, to get promoted in MC you pretty much need your MBA. I know Deloitte is trying a path where this isn't necessary, but most need it to move up. In contrast, it isn't necessary to move up in tech, so the salary is really just a promotion and... 5 months 1 week
