Hello! I am new to Preplounge and would like to practice as many cases as possible before my interviews this fall. Does each participant in the meeting prepare a case and then take turns being the interviewer and interviewee or how do the meetings work? Thank you in advance!

Hi,

That's exactly it. You will each learn+prepare a separate case and give it to each other. It's a really great way to learn - you learn a lot not just from receiving a case, but by giving one as well!

Hi,

it's really simple. Either accept a meeting proposed by someone else or propose your meetings to the community. You can also propose meetings directly to potential partners.
The meetings are designed as back-to-back. The person who proposes a meeting is interviewed first. After the first interview, roles switch. Just give it a try:-) Compared to other platforms, PrepLounge is the best place to find partners (note: I am not paid for making ads^^).

Good luck!

Daniel
