2022 Consulting graduate and intern applications

Hi guys,

With consulting applications starting to open up (EY-Parthenon, Oliver Wyman & OC&C all open now!), I thought we should start a thread to discuss progress, interviews, offers etc...


Would be good to keep each other updated when things open up!

Has anyone applied to EY-parthenon?
Bumping this thread as surprised there's no consulting thread!
Anyone had any updates from MBB post-test?
Was also searching for this thread yesterday! Where have you applied to??

No replies yet - in the email McK said replies on their imbellus test later today. I got my BCG test through yesterday - is game based? Have you done this one yet?

I've applied to the obvious ones, you? Also I should say I haven't had a test from BCG. A bit worried about how I did on Imbellus so not too hopeful.

Are you applying from undergrad?

Same - I've done MBB, OW, OC&C, Roland Berger, LEK and Strategy&. Yh - the imbellus game was so different to anything I've done before too. The BCG one is like a set of 12 mini games? Am doing that one and LEK today so will let you know how they go :smile:

Yes am applying from undergrad - you?

I'm coming from PhD. I guess if I haven't received the BCG test I'm probably out of that one. Best of luck!
Nice! And I've heard a lot of firms let out tests in batches so I wouldn't worry - esp if you've got the McKinsey one. Just did BCG and it was acc a surprisingly nice test - not sure exactly what they are looking for but you don't have to sweat it.

How do you know they're out? Did you get an interview?? If so, good luck!

I did get an interview invite. Though as I said it's for PhD so JA/A not BA -- so there's a chance they do these separately I think. So keep the faith! No news for now might be good news

Congratulations! What time today did you receive the email?
Received a McKinsey 1st round interview invite today. They said they would get back to everyone on the 29th, but I have a number of friends who haven't been contacted yet.
