Can anyone give me some feedback on Preplounge's Prep4Success programme?

I have some consulting job interviews (McKinsey, BCC, Bain) coming up and am currently practicing case interviews on Preplounge. I’m now thinking about joining their Prep4Success programme. Has anyone joined the programme and can give some feedback on it? #consulting #case-studies #mckinsey #business-case #case-interview

Hi Cat. Congrats on being invited for interviews with three of the top consulting firms. That's awesome! I worked at McKinsey for 6 years and was involved with recruiting and interviewing candidates. The Prep4Success program appears to be one of the more intense interview preparation programs I've seen out there. Typically we see candidates who prepare by reading books about cases, practicing with friends or consulting club classmates, or hiring former consultants to do mock interviews on sites like evisors. Generally speaking, case study preparation is quite valuable, so it's good that this program includes quite a lot of that. What is often overlooked in consulting interview prep is the PEI, or personal experience interview. You have to perform well on both the case and the PEI, so it's good that Prep4Success covers both. There is no substitute for practice, and you have to practice with a real human being at least a few times before your interviews. While I cannot personally endorse the Preplounge program (it was not around when I joined the firm), I can tell you that it does appear to cover the basics and that practice is an important step to success in a consulting interview. I hope this perspective is helpful and good luck!

Thank you comment icon Hi Jared. Thank you for your answer. I really appreciate it! I actually had a talk to one of the Prep4Success managers this week and he presented the programme to me in more detail. I finally decided to join it. What I like about the programme is that it’s based on my personal career goals and that it covers several components of the MBB interviews (as you said P4S also covers the PEI). Furthermore, I really had the impression during the talk that they do care about me as a candidate and that I can consult them if I have any further questions or problems, etc.. So I think the programme is sort of an all-round carefree package. But I think I can probably say more about it when I will have completed the programme. Cat
