Is one portion of the interview score weighted more than another?
No. All of the scores are equally valued out of a typical five point system. Each portion of the interview process is scored separately and does not carry more weight than any other part. Tip: When you proceed to the second round of interviews, remember that your score is back at zero, and everything you do now is looked at from a clean slate. This gives you the opportunity to take the feedback you were given and put it in to action. The interviewers need to see that you can take constructive criticism and immediately apply it.
If I get confused or lost during the interview what should I do?
There is nothing wrong with asking your interviewer to repeat themselves. In fact they’d prefer that you do ask them to clarify anything you don’t fully understand. Although they cannot give you the answer, your interviewer will gladly repeat anything they said that you didn’t understand and work with you to keep you on the right track.
How can my family or friends help me study?
Your family and friends can help you study by interviewing you. Let them ask you different fit questions, or run you through some of the frameworks. This interview isn’t about memorization but rather your ability to comprehend economic, consulting, and finance concepts. The best way to prepare is to work through the problems like you would in the actually interview. Not only are you practicing what you will later have to do but you’re learning how to use the frameworks and apply them to real life situations.
Can I be a consultant even if I don’t like to travel?
To be a consultant you really need to be open to traveling. If it’s something you are serious about you should be willing to compromise and travel as you’re needed too. The amount of traveling depends on the consulting firm itself, but mentioning your hesitation to travel is a definite deal breaker during a consultant interview because that is an unavoidable part of the job description.
