Hi all,

Typically, when do you hear back from Final Rounds at McKinsey? I heard that it usually happens within the same day / few hours (assuming the interview happens during the first half of the day). Is this the most common timeframe?

Hi,

it can be the same day or in a week. Just relax - there is no way to predict the results based on the timing of the response. Message / call the HR if they don't reply in a week.

Hi there!

The most common timeframe would be from 1 day to 1 week.
There might be exceptions, though, so the key is to stay calm and patient.

Hope it helps others as well.

Best,
GB

Same day is rare, more often over the week-end or next couple of days. It is sometimes a full month, as in my case. Like Vlad said, relax - you've done what you could, this is now out of your hands.
