Has anyone finished the pymetrics games for Bridge to BCG? What's your career match percentage for consulting? Mine is only 70%

FYI: if you want to see your match scores for consulting, you need to type into the address bar and go to www dot pymetrics dot com/careers/

Got the rejection from insight.
But the email says.
"We remain quite impressed by your application and wish to extend to you an invitation to interview for the Associate role by taking part in our interview process later this summer. If you wish to accept this invitation, please be sure to submit an application between June 1 and July 14. Since you already have a profile in our system, this should be a quick process!"
Not sure if it means I receive a full-time interview invitation.

I got an Insight interview invite (though honestly I don't think I did very well in the case portion... happy to report back when I find out the results). Here are some quick stats:
-B.S. from a Top 10 undergrad (GPA 3.7/4.0);
-Current science PhD student at a Top 10 university;
-GRE: 168Q, 163V, 4.5W;
-4 publications as co-author, though no first-author papers yet
-Leadership role in 2 organizations/clubs during grad school

For those who're interested in applying in the future, my suggestion is to put as many numbers on your resume as possible. Quantify everything, even extracurricular activities.

I think I worked pretty hard on streamlining my resume. Talked to a lot of friends and consultants to get feedback. Try to keep the format simple and use action verbs such as " designed", "implemented", " demonstrated". Don't be shy to brag out. My school was from India and less known, so I used metrics like how many people get in vs apply. Also, I tried to keep a healthy balance between professional and extra-curricular in my resume. I didn't get the final offer after interview, so I am trying to refine my interview skills. But these are my two cents. Good luck!

@jubilee" Literally 15m before the case, I had read online somewhere they did essentially the practice one online. Market size + segmentation one on their website about diabetes. Also am about 5 cases into my general case prep. Did a ton of research on consulting + have a solid amount of PhD->consulting friends I talked to a lot to get 'insights' into the process

3fegd pm me!

99% consulting via pymetrics, that was my #1. Next in business were 75%, and 50%...

Hi all,

I've used WSO 2-3 years back when i was transitioning from PhD to Consulting, and I'm cautiously proud to say/think that I started the tradition of annual compilation of PhD recruiting posts :) - could be wrong but this is my understanding.

I'm now at Trinity Partners which specializes in life sciences consulting, and it's been a great experience thus far. We're offering a 3-day summer program for PhDs and thought you guys might be interested: http://jobs.jobvite.com/trinitypartners/job/oEpJ9fwF

Best of luck to you all,
Sue

The office selection for B2B shouldn't matter because if accepted, you'll likely be placed in the closest office (if you're not local they'd have to cover your expenses so I'm sure this comes into play) according to the recruiter I talked to.

For full time, I heard some offices have more positions so might be strategic to select those but they'd likely place you in your top 2 choices if they want you so it should really be based on where you're actually willing to live.
