McK hiring new analysts right now to start in the summer????

I heard that McKinsey was still hiring a ton of new analysts right now (in the hundreds) and to start this summer. Is this true? Why are they they targeting people who would most likely already have signed offers at this point? Are they desperate for people?

Don't know about hundreds but they are hiring a lot of BAs. These are experienced professionals (usually available to start ASAP), so they're not targeting college seniors who have already signed offers.
