It's been about a moth since i submitted my mckinsey summer intership applicaiton and i still haven't heard anything from my local office however, some of my friends got invited for an interview already. Does that mean I didn't get an interveiw? or they are just taking long to get back to candidates?

Feel free to call Recruiting to know for sure. You may not always hear back if you aren't invited, but definitely ok to contact them.

Hi there!

Reaching out to HR in case of no response for more than 2 weeks would be the best option in all cases, this one is not an exception.

Usually, you will get a response. One month is very long, especially for such a structured programme as a summer intership. Reach out to them to check on the status of your application!

Hi A,

Why don't you just contact them? It's totally fine to reach out for an update.
