Hi fellow preppers,

Short story long: Have practiced 11 cases with consultants, 15 with preppers. Interviewed 1st round with McKinsey and 2 rounds with a boutique consultancy. Finished the LOMS recordings 2xtimes, all the Victor Cheng material, read through all the other standard stuff.

Currently preparing for 1st round with Bain.

Let me know if you're interested.
