Overview of BCG North American Offices

Hello all,

I recently applied to Bridge to BCG -- I got rejected from the program but BCG still offered me a first-round interview! I was hoping to use Bridge to narrow down my choice of offices, but now I have to quickly decide (over the next couple of days) which offices to apply to.

My broad question: can people give me an overview of the North American BCG offices in terms of quality/size/difficulty of being selected/concentration of projects?

Any information is very much appreciated!

Best,

Lucio

Hi Lucio,

First off, congratulations and good luck in that first round!

Now, North America is pretty huge, with 30+ offices! Why don't you narrow down the list yourself a bit more. Surely there are regions (east coast US, southern US, Western Canada/US, etc.).

Then, can you also narrow down your request? I.e. what, specifically do you want to know?

This is a good learning as a consultant by the way...never boil the ocean!

Finally, this is a great networking "excuse". This information can be asked + understand through networking calls.
