What kind of case it will be for Mckinsey first round?

I'll have my first round interview soon, I'm just wondering what is the difficulty level for this round. And I'll have a data scientist interviewer (I'm applying for analyst position), is there going to be something different to expect?

Thanks so much!

So many things come into play here... we really cannot give you a precise answer. Odds are your case will be more quant heavy due to the interviewer's background, but even that is not a given

Bottom line, if you know how to crack a case in a methodical, structured and repeatable way, you will do fine regardless of what the case is or who the interview is. If you have prepared well, sleep soundly; if you haven't, there isn't much you can do at this time so sleep soundly. Good luck

I would not say difficulty level of the cases vary based on the ranking of the rounds. Therefore you can expect to have any type of case.
