Have any of you gotten any confirmation email after submitting the get-to-know-you more survey?

The get-to-know you email is a good thing -- It's another step in the process. This was NOT given to everyone.

I am confused because the person above already had two rounds and I have not even had a first round. But great to hear that it is a good thing.

Got rejected after the case. Honestly pissed, as I know my case was good. Forecasted a model with specific assumptions based off previous trends to hit 10% margins.

Had a P72 PM look it over and he said It should be more than enough, but I guess it wasn't. Wonder if my non target status mattered. Not sure what more I could've done at all.

Good luck to those still in the process

Bro my assumptions, although my own, were in line with most analyst forecasts, and I feel the same as you – the non target status likely didn't help. Plus this case was long as hell, took me the entire weekend to do.

Anyone who had their interviews in the past two weeks heard back about 2nd round yet?

Does it make sense to reapply? I got past hirevue, case study, and the first round interview.

I applied to the NYC office like a week ago, got the questionnaire yesterday, submitted that today, and was wondering what the timeline is from here. Any thoughts or updates would be appreciated.

Just got the email invite for the superday that they are scheduling for the London office (did the 2nd round interview with an academy coach last week). Does anyone have any colour on the nature of the final round for P72?

Hi,

I've applied to the UK Point 72 Academy Summer internship. I've done the case study and have an interview soon - does anyone know what the interview entails: is it a case study debrief, or a technical interview or a competency based one?

Thanks

Im on the first interview after case study and I assume that there must be a few more before the superday. But honestly im not sure what the rest of the process is like.
