I know this has been posted on before (trust me I've read them all over the last 2 hours), but most of them are outdated or not specifically what I'm looking for. Anyway, here is my question:

I am an undergrad at a non-target school studying Psychology. I do have some decent business experience (intern with a local consulting/PE firm), a business minor, and a solid GPA, but I don't have an extensive background in finance, accounting, or anything of the sort. Somehow I got a first round phone interview with DE Shaw though for a finop summer position. I'm trying to prepare well for the interview but I can't tell if it is going to be all behavioral or if I should focus on studying for some technical questions. I've heard mixed opinions thus far.

Does anyone have any insight on the matter? Thanks.

Behavioral only. Almost all 1st round phones are like this, even more so for a summer (and ops!) position.

Weakness/Strength/Teamwork/Hard situation/etc

Memorize a few youll be good.
