Consulting Exit Opportunities

I had a final on-site and the hiring manager called to clarify a few things I had shared. Is this a bad sign? I feel like the interview went solidly but then why follow up to specify?

I would think follow up > no follow up. Why would they bother reaching back out if you were no longer being considered

They wanted to be really transparent about the work environment not being as structured as a corporate setting and that historically, consulting hires have a hard time adjusting. Also, the answer I gave for what my biggest weakness is he wanted to clarify (I was honest and proud of myself for that answer so if that’s the reason for not selecting me so be it)

I had 60 day late payment of 35 bucks in Jan. It was new Amex Hilton card I opened for stupid points. It was reported and my credit score had been consistently dropping from last 6 months. It was 780 and now is 735. I realized this 3 months and been paying my credit card bills immediately. Infact I have overpaid each card to have negative balance so my credit utilization is almost zero. What else I can do to repair the damage. I am applying for homeloan and this is big issue to get best rate

I wish immigration was not an issue. Have been interviewing nonstop and had pretty good interviews at that. Lost so many cause of H1B. Many , am sure there were people better than me , so I lost those rounds. There is so much you can do with your career at US. Take risks with firms and roles, learn more, apply ambitiously, take a break, not settle down for the first role you get cause you are desperate to find a job within the grace period. I am not looking for pity but I wish..
