Hi, I am planning to complete the application / interview process of all MBB firms before Feb, 2022. I am planning to apply to one MBB firm in every two months. The rationale is that taking a longer time frame approach enables me to have more time to prepare and I can focus on one firm at a time.
My questions are:
(1) Is “focusing on one firm at a time” a good approach? (I'm worried about being burnt out, but at the same time my current job is quite busy so it would be tough for me to interview multiple firms together).
(2) Should I place second tier firms in between MBB firms, just so that I could have more “practice”? Or, I should place all second tier firms after MBB applications as a backup choice?
