McKinsey & Company Q&As Add your Question
I frequently got the feedback in case interviews that I came across as sounding overly prepared.
Do you have experience with this kind of feedback and how can I improve this point?

The phone case interview is not different from any other case interview. At McKinsey, these are typically conducted by the firm alumni, will not have a PEI (Personal Experience Interview) component and (for obvious reasons) will not have exhibits. The questions asked tend to be simpler than in a face to face round, and the pass rate seems to be higher.
One important thing to note: as it is a phone interview, avoid long stretches of silence, talk through your calculations and be extra conscious about creating rapport with the interviewer.
Hope it helps!

I recently graduated with an MBA degree from Vanderbilt last month. I have a another job lined up in the industry, starting October.
I didn't apply for MBB or any consulting firm during my MBA program. But now I am interested in applying. I understand that most of the MBBs or consulting firms in US recruit during the MBA program, and I have missed that. My 4 years pre-MBA experience was in various Fortune 500s in various roles such as finance and product management.
So, my question is:
1. Can I still apply to MBB now in US? If yes, what should be my timeline for applying, such as should I apply immediately, and any tips on applying?
2. If no, will I still have a chance in future to apply for the same in US?
3. If I can't apply in US now, should I consider middle east or some other geographic location?
