1) I just submitted my application for McKinsey as an undergrad and was wondering when I should be expecting a McKinsey Imbellus test?
If you pass the screening it’s usually within a couple of weeks.
2) Also, I was wondering if all applicants receive the test or is it only after you have “passed” the CV screen?
Normally you have to pass the CV screening. However in some business schools it is sent to everyone with screening done after it.
You can find an article on the Imbellus below with a few tips:
