The global application deadline for candidates in US schools with anticipated graduation dates in 2013 has passed. The application date for students with anticipated graduation dates in 2014 will be posted on this page during the summer of 2013.
TOEFL requirements: Our North American offices require TOEFL scores of candidates who are non-native English speakers. An exemption is provided for any individual who earned their undergraduate degree at a US university or a non-US university where English is the only language of instruction.
The interview process generally includes a mix of case and experience interviews. However, the interview process may vary based on the local office. Please check the local office page for details on the interview process.
Depending on the specific circumstances, first round interviews may be conducted face-to-face in a Bain office or on a university campus or by phone.
