Former MC associate here. It’s a stupid question but you have to answer it. Try to tailor it to your preferred practice area, culture or people you’ve spoken to at the firm.

Hey guys! So I interviewed with McKinsey Digital: Round 1, interview 2: case + PEI. It went pretty well (at least according to me) but it has been an entire week since I’ve heard anything from them. I’m getting really anxious now but I also don’t want to show my anxiety to the recruiter which is why I haven’t sent an email to check in. Is it normal for them to take this long and should I still be hopeful for a positive response?

Everyone has the right to choose, but you do not get to choose the consequences of that choice. You can choose to not get vaccinated but the consequences might be that you have to change jobs or vaccinated people choose not to be around you. If you choose to not vaccinate your child then the consequence might be that you have to homeschool them. Choices all have consequences - whether good or bad.
