I submitted an application to both BCG and McKinsey last February 17 via their corresponding online portals and got email confirmations from both that my applications have been received. I was wondering:
1. How long does it usually take before you find out whether you've made it to the next round of the application process.
2. In the case that you don't make it, will they email you to inform you that you didn't pass the screening? Or do you just have to manually check the website to see your application status.
3. My application status in the McKinsey website is indicated as "closed" - does this mean I did not pass the initial screening?
For context, I'm from South East Asia and have applied to the SEA offices. I'm a newly licensed MD, having just graduated from medical school last year. My university is one of the target schools of the MBB firms in my country at least. Not to sound too overconfident, but I actually had my resume (and cover letter for BCG) edited by several consultant friends of mine + invested in an editing service by one of the more reputable MBB prep websites, so I thought I had a pretty good chance of at least passing the resume screening. Honestly quite anxious right now and just want to confirm with the folks here if at this stage, is it still a bit early to expect a response? or should I even expect a "rejection" email in the first place since it's the first screening?
Thank you so much!
