people with heart diseases, they preferred to go to reputed doctors. Other reason was decline in cleanliness of the hospital. While walking back from the interview room to the waiting hall, Interviewed asked me why BCG? Round 3 : The round started with basic HR questions - What is NetApp? Brief overview of my job responsibilities? Why MBA? Comparison of life at IIML v/s IITD? Why consulting? Then it went to a data intensive case. In nutshell the case was to perform a cost- benefit analysis of moving children of age 4-6yrs from Aanganvaadi to primary school. Aanganvaadi is a pre-school place in villages where children of age 4-6years are taught. Due to lack of workforce Aanganvaadi is not a good place for educating children. Interviewer asked me to list revenue streams as well as cost streams for the government if it allows movement of children. Guesstimate: Interviewer asked me to calculate number of new primary school teachers required if children of age 4-6years are to be moved in primary schools. What do you think went right in this interview? In first round, I understood the hints given by the interviewer and took sufficient time to come to an answer instead of just trying random ideas. In second and third round, I was confident and calm. I guess solving both cases with a well-defined structure and explaining my thought process to the interviewer helped me build good rapport. Both these rounds were more of discussion oriented. What do you think went wrong in this interview? In first round, I got stuck for a while and repeated an answer twice. I could have avoided it. Any tips for future batches on the basis of your experience Practice cases well. Be calm and confident during the process. Engage the interviewer by thinking out loud.

IIM Lucknow | The Consulting & Strategy Club 2015 | Summers | Interview Experiences Interview questions (With indicative answers if you choose to share them) Why did you shift to Motilal Oswal Securities? Tell me about yourself? Have you ever taken risk in life? Why do you want to join consulting? Narration of the case interview (Please be as descriptive as possible) Had total 3 rounds:- 1) Principal – Prateek Gupta Interview started off with 1 HR question – why did you shift to Motilal Oswal Securities (I had a few of job-shifts in CV)? Had a good reason for all of my job- shifts. I used them as demonstration of willingness to seek challenging work and gain diverse exposure. It followed by a calculation heavy case on a tractor manufacturer who wants to know if he should install capacity of gear boxes in the existing facility in India or start gear- box manufacturing in China. He pressured on the time constraint of finishing it in 15 minutes. I had practiced similar cases, hence I was very comfortable in structuring, getting the relevant data required, and calculating the break-even period.
