Hello!

Congrats there!

Usually yes, but can you clarify the company and the previous steps you took?

In general in consulting it´s a funnel, so you need to be successful in step 1 in order to be invited to step 2.

Hope it helps!

Congratulations on making it there!

If they have sent you an invite to a case, it seems like that. However, usually they also follow-up with an email and guidance on how to prepare. Now you should plan your preparation approach carefully to be best prepared when going into the cases.

Woohoo! Congratulations!

Yes, you are on to the next phase. You have passed the PST!

I highly advise you to get started ASAP on reading materials, scouring the Q&A, coaching with other PrepLoungers, and hiring a coach to help you prep.

Good luck!
