How can you hear BACK if you haven't applied. Maybe you need to think about your answer a little better.

Monitor:

21/Oct: submitted CV & cover

26/Nov: invited to 1st round

6/Dec: 1st round. Success. Invited to 2nd. Date tbc.

McK

21/Oct: applied

30/Oct: invited to 1st round

30/Nov: 1st round.

3/Dec: Called. Told successful to go to 2nd round (25/Jan) & given v. useful feedback.

Bain

21/Oct: applied

6/Dec: invited to 1st round (early Jan)

BCG

20 Oct: applied

... not heard anything.

No other applications made.

This is nice for me, as 2 years ago I crashed & burned my MC applications. Shows that you do get 2nd chances if you can do something useful in the meantime.

Question to everyone: Given a job at any top MC firm of your choosing, which would you pick & why?

Donald Duck to Tony (#7)

I reckon you need to jump through four hoops to get into MC:

1) Raw analytic power (tests/brainteasers)

2) Case study

3) CV

4) Personality

I had weaknesses in 2 & 3.

2 comes with practice. Buy books ('Vault' guides are pretty good), read, and get friends/family to test you if possible. Always remember to structure everything from the word go.

3 is about having worthwhile achievements & selling them. Straight out of uni, CV wasn't brilliant, and selling skills non-existent (too complacent, really). After MC rejections, I joined a finance grad scheme in industry (i.e. not Big 4 / practice), and tried to get worthwhile XP (& a professional qualification). I went out of my way to both ace the day job, and also get involved in external things (like recruitment into the grad scheme; private tutoring; sports). Partially to develop, but mostly to have fun if I'm honest.

That's my 2 cents, anyway.
