Hi PrepLounge, I'm going through final round interviews with a few firms and have noticed that in Partner cases it appears better to ask less clarifying questions - in the few interviews where I've sought to extract more background data before sharing a structure, Partners have asked me to answer my own questions instead (e.g. one case was "how do you improve customer experience at [x] stores?") and when I asked how our client would define / measure uptick in their experience, the Partner asked me how I would define it myself instead. Similar observations were made for other cases too.
Wondering if this is something that others are experiencing as well and if anyone had insight on why Partners appear to provide less information in cases - perhaps to test breadth of one's thinking? And if so, would you only keep clarifying questions to objectives / timeline and include all other questions you had in your structure.
