I had my final round interview at McK recently in a smaller US office and same day I got a feedback where the interviewer started with that they do not have space for me this year. He used exact wording and did not proceed with feedback directly. This surprised me but then I requested for feedback.
The feedback was mostly positive than negative. They loved my fit, quant, structure. One improvement area was creativity. The interviewer mentioned that they would love me there and not to the competition and encouraged to apply again next year.
The feedback surprised me overall. Is it typical or am I reading too much? I guess nothing can change now but just wanted to understand what may be the case.
