Travel can wear on you even if you're young and unencumbered.
Case quality varies.
Hours can be long.

Find a good case partner--one who gives you genuinely helpful feedback--and do at least 5 cases a week leading up to the interview. None of it is terribly hard, but you do need to prepare.

Great Company with an amazing culture
