Hello!

For me, totally overpriced.

Furthermore, I don´t see the value added in being coached by ex-partners. It can be counter-productive since they are further away

Hope it helps!

Cheers,

Clara

yeah they are overpriced unless they are selling offers irrespective of your interview performance. Thanks

I would agree with Axel that it seems a bit overkill...You don't need partner to coach you how to do case (of course it'd be good if it is not that expensive, but not a must for sure)...

Their coaching packages seem to be a little on the pricey side at $25,000 for 10 hours and I would not agree that you need to be coached by ex-partners to secure offers.

yeah unless they guarantee offer irrespective of your case performance.

Even if you have the cash and are ready to pay, you need to apply with CV and video intro. Only if you get selected, you can have coaching sessions with them.

I doubt if that is the case I receive messages from them every few days saying that I should register them and they have few spots. Applying with a CV and Video is just a gimmick to pretend they select few peoples but I bet that is not the case. there are not that money people who can pay $25,000 to be able to select any number, you just have to accept anyone who is able to pay that much

A partner can't just get you an offer irrespective of performance. This is not how MBB works at all.

Dear A,

Agree with others experts. No need to be a partner to give your insurance in securing your offer. You can choose expert coaches here on the platform and achieve same results (or even more). And remember that coach - is only a part of your success. Another part - is you and your efforts you put into this.

Best,

André

I agree with previous answers.

They have old materials. However, I found a great consulting platform that is providing up-to-date and interesting contents. Let me know if you are interested

Just saw this thread, it's totally ridiculous, partners are the first persons I want to discuss with to challenge my business, but the last ones to get prepared for an interview ...

You can find reviews here from people who did the program, they don't seem particularly good: https://www.wallstreetoasis.com/forums/firmsconsulting-tco-program

It seems the cheapest option is 15k for 10 hours of coaching? Sorry, this seems just crazy. The fact that there are no public success stories and there is no refund policy are big red flags to me.
