MBB 2022 FT recruiting

This year MBB is doing a summer round and a fall round deadline for full-time positions for undergrads in the US. I noticed that there is a thread for the summer analysts but not one for full-time. I personally applied for the summer round, because I want to maximize my options before I commit to my full-time (not in consulting) by the end of August. I am sure many of us who applied for the summer deadline are also in the same boat. SO I made this thread and hope to share updates/information. Has anyone heard back from any of the MBB? (like pymetrics, PSG, interview invitations, etc.) Feel free to post your status.

Actually same. And I scheduled the time on the last day of the given period. I guess they won't start interviewing before we complete/pass the game. Hopefully it would be a fun game too lol.

Yes. Just got the first-round email. It's crazy that they are interviewing people on Monday. Things are moving so fast. Does anyone know if they are doing two cases back to back?

Numbers-wise I know SF's AC class was 15/20. Given that, I'd say anywhere from 80-100 first rounds? Totally guessing there though. Majority come from targets.

Keeping my eye out on the dot -- seems like a lot of interview invites so far were sent at 5PM PT or Noon PT

I got... waitlisted for BCG interviews? Is this what all rejects get told or is this actually meaningfully different lol

Also, it seems like I got this email from the Chicago office -- could I get an interview offer from another BCG office still or am I locked into the Chicago office, waitlist or not?

Maybe talk to any BCG connections you have and ask them. But yeah congrats! You still have a good chance.

I was waitlisted last year for internship and didnt get off, think it's usually rare for people to opt out of interviewing with BCG unfortunately. Good luck!

I think all offices aside from the East Coast are "behind" in giving decisions -- I applied SF/Seattle and have yet to hear anyone from my school get invites. Would also be down to case!

Hm I have not gotten a rejection email or a first round to BCG. Does anyone know if rejection emails come all at once or in waves?

I'm in the same boat -- applied Seattle/SF from a target school. I'm assuming Bain has two different pipelines for non-target and target schools, of which the former has been already notified. Fingers crossed for some news this week!

John_Mark, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Interesting -- could be on an office basis as well. I know people from both targets and non-targets who applied to the west coast offices who have been notified for the first rounds. I come from a non-target so it's likely that I didn't make it past the resume screen since the interview's tomorrow. 

Does anyone happen to know if rejection emails have been sent out? Or could it be that some applications are done on a rolling basis?

Is McK process the same as usual this year - 2 interviews for first round and 4 for final round? 

Aug 3, 2021 - 11:09pm
kendralee, what's your opinion? Comment below:

I think it is office/may be school dependent. I got 2 for the 1st round and 2 for the 2nd round. I've heard in Chicago they do 4 and done in a single round for my school.

yeah SF/Seattle is out, but so are rejections so I wouldn't trip if you've heard nothing

edit: sorry misread this meant first round invites are out not first round decisions

Anyone hear from McK after having imbellus game due 7/25?

Is your first round 2 or 4 interviews? Mine is 4 interviews and I thought it was the first round, but it said they would try to convey their decision about extending an offer asap after the interview, which makes it seem like there's only one round.

Can I ask you when Mck first round came out for chicago? I was guessing it would be by friday since that is roughly two weeks. I haven't heard anything, but I'm also not sure if they send rejection letters like they did with the intern cycle.

Ya it was Friday, but idk if they're done making decisions yet. If you haven't heard anything I don't think it's a rejection per se

What was your interview like / what are your stats / background? Also know some people at UC who are pretty qualified (high GPA, strong work experience, etc) who haven't gotten interviews yet

My school's recruiter said we would hear back by end of week, so if nothing today then I assume it's a no.

Was honestly not crazy hard, very clearly mostly situated within one of the major buckets, with some critical thinking involved

Honestly by Bain first round was definitely a bit harder than expected. one definitely was unlike anything I've really done. but if you work with the interviewer and show how you think you should be in good shape.

First round was hard (I didn't finish the first case) but final round was overall okay. I'll be honest I only started practicing casing the day before the first round and somehow managed to land an offer lmao so have hope everyone.

Had mine this morning, and didn't even know they were doing them yesterday, I'd assume that they're going to make offers today or tomorrow unless there is a third day I don't know about
