I just finished a Bain final round interview (for undergrad ACI), and there are people who have received emails detailing their offer. I haven't gotten that email or heard back from them yet. Does this mean I did not receive an offer? Do offer emails go out to everyone at the same time?

Hi Anonymous!

So far, that doesn't mean anything. Typically you'll receive a phone call from one of the Partners that interviewed you and after that (if you made it) you'll get emails from HR with all the details. Sometimes the interviewers are crazy busy, so their call might get delayd by a day or two.

Fingers crossed!

Hello!

Can you detail the timeline?

It seems that you "just" finished it, if that is the case, the is no need to worry then.

They can take up to a week to answer, since it takes some time to have everyone available for debrief.

Hope it helps!

Cheers,

Clara

This all happened today (interviewed at 3pm, others received offer email at around 9pm). I'm concerned because the ACI position most likely gives offers at the same time. I also didn't send a thank you email until 9pm (since I forgot) if that also hurts me.

Hi,

I may or it may not mean you didn't receive an offer - I understand it's hard to stay calm here but that's exactly what you need to do!

Remember when you applied to university? Everyone receives their acceptances/rejections at different times...don't stress....you'll find out in a few days.

Hi there,

This does not mean anything, just relax and wait until early next week to get more details. In the different offers I received from MBBs, some were given on the same day, and others 1 week later, so this does not mean anything at all.

Relax and enjoy your weekend!

Hello,

Could you please specify how long has it been since your interview? In any case, not all applicants receive a response at the same time, but the important thing is that everyone gets a response especially when you are talking about final round interviews.

Hope this helps and best of luck!

King regards,

Nikos

Hi Anonymous,

No, that doesn't mean anything. Not all emails are sent the same time.

Hope that helps - if so, please be so kind to give it a thumbs-up with the green upvote button below!

Hi there,

Maybe it would be better to ask HR about the response time after the interview. Sometimes it can be several days, but it could also be up to several weeks. Don’t hesitate and ask HR about it.

And of course candidates don’t receive their offers/refusals at the same time.

By the way, did you get a response from HR?

All the best,

GB
