I wish I had found out about this industry earlier but now that I know that I love everything about consulting, I want to set myself up for success. Sadly, I don't know what I'm doing. I applied to Mercer Consulting and surprisingly got an interview (I have no previous consulting experience so I was shocked). Because I was unaware of the complexity of consulting interviews, I treated a consulting interview like any other interview, so I was in shock when I got the questions that I did. Since then, I've been trying to learn more about how to prep for interviews but I'm not sure if I should be devoting my time applying and trying to land a summer internship (the deadline for summer internships are closing up) or if I should just accept the fact that Iprobably won't get an internship because I'm not adequately prepared and just focus on landing a job during the fall of next year. My end goal is to end up at BCG, Bain, or McKinsey after graduating. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
(Context: I have a 3.6 GPA, 7 years of part-time work as a legal assitant, and am not currently in any consulting clubs on campus but I plan to join one next quarter)
