Got ghosted by McKinsey…. I was applying for an intern position for next summer. They told me I would hear about my next steps by the end of first week of December….. nothing yet…. Saw some folks got interview invitations in another bowl yesterday. Does that mean I get rejection by hearing back later than they promised?

Wait til Tu. Follow up politely. If they reply and you get declined, thank them for the opportunity. You never know what happens in the future

Sorry, but if you missed the primary cycle, odds are slim :(

I don’t think I missed the primary cycle. I applied before the ddl. And I received game assessment invitation. In that email, they told me I would hear back by the first week of December

I’d try looking up the recruiter email thru linkedin as well!

For the previous summer cycle, my impression was that interview invitations were sent out on a rolling basis, so others hearing first might not necessarily mean a rejection

My concern is that they said I would hear back by the first week of Dec, but it is obviously delayed… this kinda led me think negatively.

Thank you for the advice! Makes sense!

You're probably on the wait list if people reject offers

Yeah possibly. But I doubt anyone would turn down interview opportunities.
