If you can do a paper LBO, you can do the LBO model. It is literally a one-tab Excel sheet with half the model filled in and you fill in the missing gaps. The more challenging piece is the case study that accompanies but is separate from the LBO where you have to provide a writing sample where you break out the investment highlights of a given company. Even that though is a breeze compared to what some banks ask out of lateral candidates.
