How many people get second round interviews at MBB?

I have final round interviews for Bain, BCG and McKinsey. Does anyone know what % of people make it to this stage and how many typically get offers? Is the second round still a huge pool for them to cut down from or do they only give second rounds to people who they think would have a good shot?
They are flying me out for the final round (first round done on-campus)

The ballpark numbers are that between 20% and 50% of final-rounders get offers. It varies by firm and office; I've heard, though don't know for a fact, that BCG takes a higher percentage of the people who get final rounds than do McKinsey and Bain (i.e. their final round is a more select group); I do know for a fact that at one of my MBB final rounds in a non-NY office they took about half of the people who interviewed because they kept the number of people invited to a final round low.

Yea Bain interviews a lot; McKinsey a bit less, and BCG even less than that
It might vary office to office but this is generally true

But its no use worrying about % just do your best

I don't want to jack this thread but how similar is IB/S&T?

This is my second time at a MBB final round. First time three years ago I was rejected. This time, I am assuming I am rejected. (No response in 6 days). The other applicant with me was also rejected (same day as interviews). These were different offices.

Basically final rounds can still mean rejection.
