      Your comment is as dumb as your mobile network.

      It's actually a good mental strategy for keeping your cool during interviews. Not caring allows you to see problems more clearly and I swear it makes you seem like a more desirable candidate.

    Lol. Rejection rate is not that high. Interviews are easy. Hiring bar is low. I'd be surprised if rejection rate is higher than 30%.

    Lol if you’re talking about C1’s case interviews for engineering then it’s a joke

    But for more business related positions then yes have heard it’s hard

    90%??! Sounds like they aren't very good with discerning who to interview. Yikes.

    Starting with them in a month. If you're interviewing for an entry level position, the case interview is pretty much laid out in all the resources they give you. C1 cases are much more math heavy than typical consulting cases (nothing hard, I had to graph a break event and integrate once to find an aggregate value)
