I think McK & Bain have a July 15th deadline, but McK says they hope to see most of the full time applications by the 7/15 deadline and most of the intern applications by the September deadline. Pretty unclear if there's some kind of advantage, if any, to applying for the earlier cycle.

Also any other updates from MBB as a whole? Thinking that Bain might be coming out this week with interview invites but don't know if it's office-dependent

Yes, true -- I'm applying FT and just realized that the bulk of this convo is surrounding SBA/SA/ACI. Is there a specific thread for FT?

I think they have a national application so you should be good in that regard since it's on their website -- i've heard that recruiting with EY Parthenon is especially difficult if you don't come from a target though, given the elite botique nature of the firm

Has anyone heard back for McKinsey 1st rounds? I saw that full-time folks got theirs yesterday, but not sure if interns are on the same timeline

Ye got an interview invite in early August. There's only one round of four interviews and then they make offers.

Applied for the ACI position at the NYC office and am still waiting to hear back (no rejection either). Considering that people have completed the interview process for the NYC office, is there any hope of getting a Round 1?

Has anyone who interviewed for Bain final round on Tuesday 8/10 (for any office) heard back yet? Edit: I emailed the recruiter and he said we would be hearing back from someone on their team next week -- aren't we supposed to hear back from one of our interviewers?

If anyone hears back today (or tomorrow) from Bain NYC / Boston round 2 interviews from Tuesday 8/10, would appreciate it if you could let us know here -- recruiters have told multiple people that we're supposed to be hearing back early this week.

Did anyone else feel that the BCG online case was super hard? Felt like the fit part went well (like most ppl lol), but had a lot of trouble with the math.

Yeah, same. For some reason, couldn't get the right answer for like 3 min but figured it out when I solved it another way.

I personally got an invite to do a first round interview with the West Coast System in BCG, and I have classmates who have also received invites for the Northeast (This is under the September 8th Application deadline so quite a fast turnaround)

Has anyone heard back from Mckinsey for a round one interview? I applied early in September and haven't heard anything - should I assume it's a rejection?

I applied at the beginning of September, was asked to take the test the next week, took the test, and it's been radio silence since lol

I believe McKinsey has shot out their first round of interviews for this cycle, I know people who are interviewing for northeast offices and I'm interviewing for another office, but am unsure about whether they'll be shooting out more as people wash out of the process.

Can you provide more details about this? Like when did you get the invite, do you go to a target school, when you applied, etc.

Does anyone know if Bain staggers first rounds or sends them out all at once? I applied for the second deadline to NY, but haven't heard back. I know of people who have first rounds for the second deadline though.

Did anyone else apply for the Bain September 23rd deadline and get a first round yet? If I haven't heard back for a first-round interview should I assume a rejection?

Got email from HR about first round. From what I learned from networking contacts they did not send any denials, only acceptances.
