Interview Details

What did the interview consist of?
1 on 1 Interview
Please describe the interview / hiring process.
I applied online through my college's career center portal. I had a 1-on-1 in-person interview with two BCG consultants at my school's career center. Several BCG consultants flew down and interviewed students throughout the day. I believe that my interview with the consultants lasted about 15-30 minutes, each. Both interviews asked me a few basic behavioral questions (about my education, previous work/internship experiences) and then each gave me a case interview, which I found very difficult.

Several days before the interview, I received an email from a BCG associate consultant (who was a few years out of college and worked in the DC office) asking if I'd like to schedule a call with him. I had a call with him a couple days before my interview, and he gave me some background on the company, told me what to expect for the interview, and he gave me a couple of practice case study questions.
