How long to hear back from big consulting firms?

    • Thread Starter

    Hi all,

    Just a quick q - for those who have applied to the big consulting firms (BCG, Bain etc), how long did it take for you to hear back following the first stage of your application (CV & cover letter). I applied around 2 weeks ago now - not the earliest, but not last minute either, and haven't heard back about online tests. I'm not sure whether it's something I should worry about, or whether they tend to wait until nearer the deadline for that stage - I'd just like to know whether I still have a chance or not!!
Do you have exam superstitions?
