I love WSO... this forum is simply awesome....lol

Rossgs210, no you fucking retarded fob...the Einstein in front of you mistakenly referred US AP.

11/30/11

Another BB has sent out their invites for first round. Has anyone heard from GS?

11/30/11

Is it looked down upon to apply to both the NYC and HK offices?

11/30/11

^ Yes, you can end up with neither.

11/30/11

In regards to applying to two locations I've always been told it's fine but they expect you to select just one after the first round interview. This is in the context of NYC vs Houston though. May be different internationally.

12/12/11

when did you guys hear from citi?

12/12/11

does it look bad to apply to many different locations for the same BB (all IB tho, not IB and then CM and S&T)

ex: UBS LA
UBS San Fran healthcare
UBS NY financial sponsors group
UBS Chicago

my thought, would just increase my chances for all these different groups applying to, but now might show im not stable or dnt knw what i want? truth is, il work in a basement if i learn M&A from a BB IB, so ya i dnt care where i am, i just want the experience!

Yes, as far as I know, recruiting is separate for different divisions.

12/14/11

Submitted my Barcap and Citi asia apps on November 29. Both still say "still under consideration". I see ppl have been getting 1st rounds..Anybody know what that means for me? Rejected?? Waitlisted? Or still hope for a 1st round interview?

Awesome thanks for letting me know. Still kinda weird how my app is still under consideration though......was wondering if you can let me know what was asked in the interview and how it went. can you pm me or reply? thanks!

12/14/11

So does it mean if you didn't hear for 1st round, you are out of luck?

12/14/11

For all of you guys who haven't gotten a 1st round interview yet:

When you log into your application, do you see that you got rejected or do you see that "your app is under consideration" Because all of my apps are still under consideration...

i heard that some statuses stay like that even after offers are out. i'm guessing the banks aren't very good at changing those...

12/14/11

btw, do you guys know how many rounds the interviews are? just first round and super day or is there an extra round in between?

12/14/11

Haha agreed. I don't think that's a good indication of where you stand.

I think first round and then super day.
By the way, how much time does a typical analyst spend on building models in locations like Hong Kong comparing to places like London NY or Singapore?

12/14/11

my recruiting season has been a total failure so far. good luck everyone.

12/14/11

Sorry to hear that. But it's too early to give up just yet. There are still some good banks that haven't reached out, at least I am not aware.

i think im closer to the entrance of the tunnel than the end. on campus recruiting is so much better - more structured, less guessing game.

Good luck to everyone else though
