Fall 2014 East Coast Tour Recap

Over the last month, we kicked off our Fall Consulting Bootcamp tour and have trekked up and down the East Coast to several universities – after visits to Columbia, McGill, Duke, Georgia Tech, Yale, Harvard, and Wharton (UPenn), we finally hosted a private bootcamp in New York.

We have a number of other bootcamps coming up – we’ve just visited the University of San Diego and are headed to Arizona State, University of Virginia, Stanford, Pepperdine, and the University of Southern California (USC) in the next 2 weeks.

In addition, we’ll be in the UK in October – if you’re from a school in the UK or Europe and would like to host us for a 2-hour or 8-hour event, let us know!

Sign up now for our final remaining open event in London – don’t miss out, as spaces are limited. We’ve prepared hundreds of select students for the wild, crazy world of consulting! To get some of the MC magic, jump on and register now!


We started the trip at Columbia, where we hosted a 2-hour open event in the famous lecture hall from “Mona Lisa Smile.” The next day, we had a great kick-off session with 30 advanced degree candidates from the New York area.

We then headed to Montreal, where we hosted a sold-out program for Ph.D.s and an extra day of 1:1s.  It was way warmer than our last trip in January!

We then headed south with a trip to the original Chick-Fil-A – Jenny Rae got frisky with Truett Cathy (the chicken dynasty founder).

We presented both the 2-hour and 8-hour Bootcamps at Georgia Tech. Despite a gnarly thunderstorm, we snuck out and had a great networking lunch.


The next stop was Duke – a completely packed 8-hour bootcamp on a Sunday. What an impressive group!

Our experience to Yale MBAs and MAMs was ‘other worldly’ – their new high tech floating business campus led to an impressive and modern presentation.


The group stayed for the whole presentation and beyond, despite the free beer and appetizers flowing in the courtyard.


Our hand-selected Harvard class was full of enthusiastic participants; they particularly enjoyed volunteering their partners for the mock practices! Cheeky punters!

The Consulting Club was preparing for their annual consulting conference, but we posed for a quick pic with our host.

Our Wharton class was filled to capacity – in the same room where we broke fire codes last winter!

We wrapped up with a power packed 8-hour open bootcamp in NYC – hosted at the New York Marriott, the group came in for a hug at the end of the intense day.
