How to prepare for BCG 2nd round: BCG real life

Has anyone deeper insides in how to prepare for the BCG real life assesment in the 2nd round? I heard that some topics might be
(i) Client meeting,
(ii) Presentation preparation (PowerPoint) or
(iii) Lunch conversation with collegues
Are these more or less what I should expect and if so, is there a (good) way to prepare for these or should I just trust my intuition?
Thanks already.
Kind regards,
Marc

Marc - no response so far, so I'll take a crack at it. Please understand I am not sure if "real life assesment" is a fancy new exercise, or just the old fit inteview reborn simply under a fancy new name. Either way - it sound fancy, but the objectives haven't changed: Are you BCG material, will you fit within the culture?

From there, the answer flows logically: your 2nd round interviewer (Partner typically, may also be a senior Principal) will attempt to understand how you work and interact with people. In other words, expect essentially the same kind of questions you'd have in other 2nd rounds: something you are proud of, over come adversity, motivated a team, why BCG...

Good luck!
