I am finishing my graduate study. I will finish my program in December in a US University and will have very light research/work on my last semester. I am planning to do my actual case interview with the company early next year so I will have around 6 months of preparation. I know some people will say it might be too long but I just like the long time preparation as I will feel more preparared. My questions are
1. I have a chance to take MBA-level class for my last semester. What classes should I take ? I am thinking about Strategy Class. What Else ?
2.How should I structure my preparation time line ? So far, I dedicate my early time to learn basic theory about business (I have got already some business related knowledge before as well). Then, I will split my time between Case Interview preparion and Fit Interview.
2B. If you can give monthly basis schedule advice that would be great.
3. What are good resources from University should I capitalize ?
4. Let me know if you have any advice/experience to share.
Note: currently, I am little bit tight on budget. So, I would really appreciate it if you can give tips that not emphasizing professional coaching (At least for the early stage). I know this is very useful but I would prefer to have this session on my later part of preparation since I want to get (most of those) those "Low-Hanging out fruits" by myself. Thank you
Thanks for all the answers and I wish you the best of luck
