Hi peers / experts,
I concluded my R1 interviews with McKinsey. When one of my interviewers called to communicate that they are unable to let me through to the next round, he also mentioned that:
- my result was close to a succesful first round, and
- that I should reapply in 12-18 months
Q1: Is the encouragement to reapply a genuine indication or is it likely to be a mere courtesy that is said to most unsuccessful applicants?
Q2: Is the interview who called to provide feedback was the one who has likely had to reject a candidate based on their interview performance?
Thank you for sharing your thought!
