Axel's program is as comprehensive as it reads. This program segments out all primary components of an interview into manageable pieces which allows Axel to provide tailored feedback to best prepare you for your Bain interview. Despite the programs' name, it could easily work for any management consulting firm (Axel just happens to have worked for Bain so he has further insight into their interview process). I would highly recommend this program for anyone preparing on this site, regardless of where you are in your journey to your interview(s).

I found the ‘Get Ready for Bain’ program extremely helpful and would recommend it to everyone who has an upcoming interview with them. When I started it, I didn’t know how to structure cases and my communication was not very clear. However, since then I have made a lot of progress and addressed those weaknesses together with Axel. The first session was super useful, since I got an insight into how a real interviewer guides you through a case. Previously, I had only done a few cases with my friends, and the experience is very different if you work with someone who has been trained to give case interviews. After the interview, Axel gave me detailed actionable feedback and completely changed the way I thought about case structuring. Hence, the next session, I practiced small structuring drills to implement that feedback. The case structuring session was good, because I was able to implement what I learnt during the week and Axel gave me hints on how to ensure that my frameworks are MECE as well as communicating the structure appropriately. Afterwards he provided extensive case structuring and market sizing prep material which I went through before the next session. With that preparation I was already in a good position when we did the market sizing session, as Axel was able to fine tune my performance. Due to that, I was able to get the most out of this session. The FIT session was really good practice, especially since I was struggling with communicating my stories in a structured way. I got feedback after each question which was helpful as I was able to attempt to implement that feedback when answering the next question. Besides that, Axel helped me pick the most suitable stories for this type of interview, which made me feel more confident. The final session was excellent practice for the real interview, as it covered both case and FIT components. It was good to see how far I have come since starting the program and Axel’s feedback made me aware of the areas I still need to work on before my real interview. He also gave me suggestions regarding how to target those areas for improvement effectively. Overall, I have a really positive experience with this program and it helped me come a long way from not knowing where to start a case and not communicating clearly to only having a few areas I can work on myself before my interview.
