When applying for multiple offices, do McKinsey and Bain review your application centrally (no input from individual offices) or do individual offices review your application in the order of your ranking?
I know BCG do the latter,, but I wasn't sure about McKinsey and Bain. I thought Bain was the latter too, but today I received a rejection from their Global recruitment email. When I called my first choice office to see if I could get some feedback, they seemed to suggest that they hadn't reviewed my application at all and it had been handled by a central team. Has that been everyone else's experience or have I misunderstood?
