I failed my final round interview at BCG January 2019, I talked to the HR and they said I need to wait 18 months, which means I will be able to reapply August 2020 earliest.
I started a target school MBA programme (part-time) in 2019 October which has a duration of 19 months which means I will have a degree May 2021.
The question is about the timing of reapplication.
Logic 1: reapply August 2020, when 70% of the MBA programme will be done. In case of fail there will be opportunity to get a third attempt after that.
Logic 2: wait until May 2021 to have the degree because they will accept the application that way with solid knowledge.
Which one appropriate?
For what position should I reapply with an ongoing MBA study? BA, Junior Associate or Associate at Mck and Senior Associate / Consultant?
In case of second failure do you think there will be one more chance to try again?
I failed at final round at BCG and McKinsey at PST. Do you think I will need referral again or the target school MBA is strong enough to indicate enough change in the background to reapply?
CV check would be well needed as well.
Thank you very much for your help!
