Hello!

Why would you say "rejection" instead of "acceptance"? Come on, a little bit of optimism!

Depends, since a meeting needs to happen with HR and the two people who did the final round. Since they are generally partners, this can take up to a week.

Good luck!

Hi,

Usually, it's within a couple of days, but It can take up to two weeks in the edge cases. Partners need to consolidate their opinions and very often it's hard taking into account their schedule.
