Point72 Experienced Academy - Case Study

Hey all, 

Anyone here applied to the P72 experienced academy, and got past the case study round? Did the case study as well, but didn't get through, and curious to see how those who did tackled the project. Happy to DM if you prefer to communicate privately, cheers in advance. 

Hey man - how long did they take to get back to you about your case study? I submitted a couple of weeks ago but still haven’t received an email. Think I have been ghosted but wanted to understand others’ timelines.

Seems like at least 2 different tests were given out to candidates, which is curious. If anyone else has more to share feel free to DM, keen to understand their process better 

Bumping again, guessing a few people have made it well past the case study round. If you have and are open to sharing how you tackled the case, please feel free to post/DM. 

Was the case study timed? Or could you open it and spend a week on working through it?
