I had applied to BCG in early 2021 while working at an e-commerce firm. I got through first 2 round by Mar 2021 but then had no response from them for a while. Assuming rejection I proceed to submit my MBA application and I am already going to start my MBA at INSEAD Jan 2022.
In Jun BCG got back to me 2 months ago, I had 2 other rounds of interview. After 4 rounds, they decided to tell me that due to having lop sided experience and no MBA, they want to consider me only for specialist roles. I did not feel like saying no until I had an offer with concrete details. So I told them I was okay to proceed. Now 1 week ago they emailed me saying they are not going to make me an offer and I can only apply after 2 years.
Will this freeze impact me when and if I try to apply for BCG during campus recruitment event in INSEAD? I wish they had told me my profile was not fit for consultant and rejected me from the start, then at least it would have been at least a year already by the time I start B school. Now it wont be even 6-7 month, before I start applying for internships.
