Scholar94:hello scholar94 I trust you are good? sorry for not being around much. I hope I can provide satisfactory answers to your challenge...

Yes o. Thank you.
A short background of myself
I am a recent graduate with cool academic background and seriously eyeing consulting, McKinsey specifically. I finished my NYSC a month ago. while I was still serving I applied for McKinsey ylp got to PST stage but due to poor preparation and inexperience, I was dinged after the test. Sometime around July, I emailed the hr about my eligibility to apply for business analyst role, and was told that I'm very much eligible and should send my application early next year as the role I'm intending to apply for has been fully subscribed to this year.
Why am I looking for you actually?
1. Right now, I have read Case in point, case interview secret (with Loms) and up to 2 business school case books. However reading case book and having live cases are two different things. So I need your help in this regards
2. Apart from my ability to solve case, pass PST what are other things that matter in getting an offer at McKinsey?
3. I'm a nerd and somewhat introverted. Would this count against me if I eventually get in?
4. My background as a graduate was not too impressive and most time when I go on LinkedIn to check the calibre of people working at Mck, I got scared. Pls say something on this
5. And lastly, Can you pls mentor me?

Scholar94:let me say you are doing good. To be quite frank, problem solving comes natural. The main hurdle in case interview are " mental arithmetic " and ability to understand the case. Q1: you have read a lot on case interviews, now you should know your strengths and weaknesses. Q2: Ability to answer interview questions with convincing scenarios especially how you managed a difficult situation and people above you at your previous workplace or community or school projects (McKinsey loves this basic interview qstn) Q3: Not at all you will do just fine. Q4: There are incredibly smart people at Mck, trust me but you will do just fine if you believe you can. Let me tell you, there was a BA (though she was new) who couldn't open an Xcel file then. but she did just fine before leaving for the industry. I hope you can open Xcel files ? Q5: I am sorry I may not be able to, I am often unavailable. You can try other industries like investment banking, Finance or Advisory firms and join Mck later as an experience hire. Good luck!....
