It's been a journey of several years; I started The MCN in January 2011, to counteract the fact that McGill students were being handily beaten out by Queen's and Ivey students who had been preparing for consulting since early in university.
Since then - the site has grown substantially, with about 1,500 members worldwide, an Advisory Board of consultant and ex-consultants in North America and the Middle East, and dozens of students who have made it through the recruitment process largely due to their own intelligence and initiative but also in small part (I like to think) due to the resources available here.
That said, after 3 years at Oliver Wyman, I decided to quit and pursue a Master's in Public Policy in Boston. As a result, I will be maintaining the site sporadically without any major overhauls, contrary to what I've been doing over the past few years. I will still be around and happy to help those who are interested in the field, however I have made the decision to go down a different path that will likely not include consulting in my future.
It's been a real privilege to work with so many fantastic students and I've been genuinely touched by the e-mails from students who have benefited from the resources available here. I have no doubt that you will all go on to do great and meaningful things - and I hope that you take the time to help other students through the process as well, because sometimes a person simply needs a helping hand.
Good luck, guys! And remember: just because things don't work out at first doesn't mean that they won't work out if you keep trying.
