I've just submitted my application to L.E.K. as an MBA applicant and I'm wondering how difficult, in comparison to other tier 2/MBB firms, I can expect it to be. I've solved 25 cases and have given 25, but still feel a bit underprepared in terms of timing and coming up with a solid framework. Any tips on how to focus my efforts to maximize growth before the interview? Does anyone have an idea of how the offer rate compares to MBB?

Hi A,

Similar case styles between LEK and MBB. A few differences in the companies:

  • LEK projects tend to be shorter
  • LEK has less travel in general

Either way, presetige might be less at LEK depeneing on the region, but it's still a great firm to work for. If you can, practice more and focus on the quality of the partners you case with, rather than the amount of practice you do. Let me know if you need help.

Best, Aws
