    I've applied too

    The application deadline was just yesterday so I imagine that they'd reply mid/late March?

    Yes, I'm a first year What are you guys studying/which uni?

    I looked at the threads in the years before and people got replies about 2 weeks before the programme, so hopefully we'll find out by the 24th.

    Studying at Warwick

    I read in the previous threads that there was no point in putting a cover letter as they don't read it apparently? Only included my CV.

    This is what mine said

    Your details have been sent to McKinsey’s recruitment team as an SEO Candidate – this means that your application will be prioritised and your chances of being successfully chosen for the Discover Programme are increased.

    Me too! Congrats.

    I just realized I'll have to cancel a lot of reservations I had already made for the holidays. Sigh. Do you get fast-tracked for internships, etc.?
