R u a lateral hire?

like

yes, lateral! looks like I'm in a similar spot as a few other posters here

If they told you that you would hear by today and you don’t then it’s totally okay to follow up in the morning. Just be gentle and polite in the email

If it is campus recruiting, then it means you prob didn’t get an invite. All our invites were sent to us last week and rejections come out later

Which MBB and region is this for?

McK, US
