Final round interviews

Hey everyone, going into MBB finals here and a good case partner of mine has been scheduled for 3 interviews in the final round. Oddly though, I'm applying for the same role in the same office and have been scheduled for 2 interviews. Does anyone know what could be the reason behind this difference? Very puzzling to me.

  • Something in his background they might want additionally check
  • Scheduling issues (i.e. you'll have one more interview later)
  • Worse performance of your friend

Hey anonymous,

There might be several reasons to explain that... for instance, your colleague performance in previous round(s) could have just been poorer and that's why they are adding an extra interview to clear any doubts.
