Did anyone else get this email from KKR?

Got a weird email today and was wondering if anyone else did as well. I applied for KKR's 2022 SA program in PE over three months ago in April, and I never heard back from them. But today, I just got an email saying:

"Thank you for applying to KKR's 2022 Summer Analyst Program. Based on your background, we would like to invite you to apply to a new Summer Analyst opportunity on KKR's Private Equity - Retail/Consumer team."

The position is in Menlo Park, and the deadline to submit interest is tomorrow. I'm not really sure what happened. Did I get waitlisted? That would be weird though because I never even got a first round. I can't apply now because I have already accepted a 2022 offer, but I'm interested in hearing others' thoughts.

Yeah, got it too. Is it selective at all do you think? Or does everyone who got dinged get it? I think it's the latter, since my resume was really weak when I applied in the spring and I had no referrals or anything.

Out of curiosity, what causes someone to renege KKR?
