2021 ADC/APD Summer Programs/Full-Time Applications Thread

Applications are starting up so figured I'd set up a thread similar to last year so people could ask questions or share updates as they prepare for recruiting season. Giving back to the community I heavily lurked last year for sure!

Below are links with deadlines for firms with applications updated for 2021.

Summer Programs:

Other firms that hire PhDs include:

  • EY-Parthenon
  • Health Advances
  • Navigant
  • ZS
  • IQVIA
  • CBPartners
  • Cello Health Bioconsulting
  • Comment if I'm missing some

Hi ADCs! I was in your spot last year and now I'm starting at an MBB firm. Happy answer questions here and/or to share resources and example application docs via DM. Coaching interviewees as an assigned buddy for my firm has shown me how valuable it can be to give back. Welcome and good luck!

Great question! I applied for all three summer programs by MBBs, but I did not get into Bain's or BCG's. For both, I was put on a "stay in touch" type of list. In my region, McKinsey had a one-day info session and I did get into that.

As for whether it helped my application, it could help you get on folks' radars. But those summer programs are very limited, so it's okay if you aren't one of the handful of people who actually gets into Bridge to BCG or the others. Many more people I know were invited to the full-time interview than to the summer program.

Keep in mind this was all during Covid, and the firms changed a lot of their recruitment that year. Who knows what will happen this time!
