How long does it usually take to get a reply from MBB after having sent the application - for a rejection or an invitation to the interview (in the US)? It has been a week for me now. Should I expect a rejection?
When did you receive a reply after sending initial application?
I think 2 weeks was the max for me to get a response. In my experience usually they contact you after 3-7 days, but I don't think you have to worry that much or expect a rejection straight away. See and wait. I wish you good luck ;)
Is it recommended to do pro bono consulting projects online for inexperienced applicants? Do they enhance our chances of being taken seriously as compared to not having worked in consulting at all? Can you recommend any websites or portals where we can find such projects?
I have been assigned a "buddy" (A consultant) by HR at MBB who I can contact for help on cases and interview prep. Basically, I want to get in contact with him, get some tips on case prep from his personal experience etc. and more info on the office etc. I am wondering what is the polite way to ask him for help? How should I formulate my e-mail?
