Hearing Back After BCG Final Round Interview


I had my final round interviews for a Northeast office of BCG yesterday and thought the interviews went really well. Although I was originally supposed to have two 45-minute interviews, I had a 3rd additional informal chat with a partner before I left who wanted to answer my questions and "see where my head was in terms of BCG". When I told him that I had skipped another MBB interview in order to make it to BCG final rounds (which is true), the partner gave me a fist bump....so I thought I was in the clear.

I, however, did not get a call yesterday. Although HR technically tells everyone that it's a one week turnaround, it seems like BCG is known for giving same-day offers. Has anyone gotten a BCG offer 2-3 days after their interviews? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!

How Long Does It Take to Hear Back After BCG Superday?

While some users shared that it is typical to hear back the day of the interview, it is not uncommon to have to wait several days or a week to hear back either way about getting the offer to work with the Boston Consulting Group.

Probably not what you want to hear, but a friend of mine just heard back from the New York office a couple hours after his interview yesterday. Search through a couple of WSO threads and you will find some people who noted getting offers a few days afterwards. It might vary office to office. There's also a waitlist possibility.

Best of luck.

One of the partners I interviewed with responded to my thank you note saying, "Thanks. It was good to talk with you. Enjoy the weekend"

Is this a ding? I feel like if the partner wanted to give me an offer, he would've just called me after seeing this e-mail....or am I reading way too into this?

BCG - Final Round - Hear Back? (Originally Posted: 10/31/2011)

Hey all,

Sorry to post another one of these, but I interviewed last Friday at BCG. A girl I met at the interview exchanged numbers with me. I was told we'd hear back by today (Monday) and my new friend did this morning. She was not extended an offer.

What does it mean I haven't been contacted?

If I have an offer deadline Friday for another firm, should I send an email pressuring them for a decision?

Thanks for the help.

You are on the alternate list. This has happened to a lot of my friends, just call them tomorrow or Wednesday and touch base. The offer is definitely something to put on the table, just make sure they know you will accept BCG on the spot if you get it (if that's what you would really do).

Reality hits you hard, bro...

BCG Final Round Decisions (Originally Posted: 10/26/2012)

Hey everyone, had final round interview in NJ office today, and didn't ask when to expect decisions. Does anyone know how soon the NJ/NY offices typically take to respond after the decision round? I heard a rumor that those extended offers would hear tonight but is that true? Has any one already heard from New York or New Jersey offices or know what turnaround time usually is? Thanks folks.

Man, you need to be really good when the interviewer did not let you finish the case and get passed right away. Even if the overtime casted some doubt on him, the performance overall over the recruitment process and being able to resolve the case creatively put you in a great position.

It may happen that they will call you on once again to have another interview if they have some doubt but, in my opinion you are well positioned, they only thing I can tell you is try to stay calm till wednesday comes (really tough I know).

Hope you get the offer!

BCG Boston Final Round Results? (Originally Posted: 11/04/2012)

I just had my BCG final round interview (NY office) this past Friday for a consultant position (I'm still in my second year of MBA in an Ivy League school). Now almost 48 hours have passed, and I have neither received any phone call or email.

Anybody who also applied to BCG NY this year or last year? When did they notify you for your results? By email or phone call?

I originally thought it will be a straight same-night offer or rejection, but having waited for 48 hours now really make me nervous!

BCG Decision Round SF (Originally Posted: 10/22/2013)

Hey everyone, I know there's been a couple posts like this one in the last few days, but I wanted to check if anyone's heard anything back from the SF office specifically. I don't know anyone else who was in the final round, and I'm not sure how quickly the SF office is known for notifying candidates (the presumption being quickly, but it'd be nice to know what timeframes yes's/no's/waitlists respectively go out).

If I get a call from them before anyone responds I'll let y'all know. Thanks for any info =)

Update: just got the call, no offer unfortunately. Good luck to all of you though!

BCG decision round Boston office (Originally Posted: 10/04/2016)

Just wondering if anyone who's been interviewing at the BCG Boston office for the associate position (undergraduate) this week/last week has heard back from the firm? There wasn't a lot of people interviewing from my school so just wondering where other people are?
