IB SA Sophomore 2022 Thread

MS- Apps open

GS- Apps open July 1 but had some accelerated S&T superdays

JPM- Not open I believe

UBS- Accelerating some people from diversity program but no other superdays yet

Jefferies- Have some diversity fellowship I saw some people on LinkedIn with offers

Do they even track diversity through the normal app or was it just the special forum they had. They didn't ask for LGBTQ or anything.

Where even is the JPM application. I only saw one for juniors and I'm at a target core school or w/e. Do you just apply to the one for juniors?

When did you submit the application?  Have yet to hear anything back and haven't gotten a HireVue, submitted a couple weeks ago.

if I apply now is it too late (like BofA & GS IB)? do I need a referral to have a chance?

Has anyone applied to GS already? Do we just submit our application in the same place as juniors?

Saw GS HVs go out in the GS SA 22 thread. Does anyone know if the timeline for rising soph HVs is the same as that for juniors?

If you look at the Bank of America specific thread, there are other people who both did and didn't get a superday invite yet

I'd expect they would ask why you're applying when on another post you're saying you already work there

How hard is it to get the BofA sophomore internship program for IB? And is it selective and a good opportunity? I didn't get a superday and neither did any of my friends, so I'm assuming it's hard to get in...or I just suck

How far along are the banks with sophomore programs (GS, MS, Citi, BofA - side note: are those the only ones that are open rn?) in terms of recruiting? Are they basically done? Have been seeing ppl talking abt hirevues and superdays but I know there is still some time before the apps close. Do they continue recruiting through late Aug/Sept after they finish jr recruiting? Applied last week and did Hirevue for MS but haven't heard back from others. Am I too late?

RBC: Apps closed in like June and superdays are occurring throughout the summer

BofA: Already had (from what I can tell) only one superday and multiple offers, unsure if there will be more

UBS and Credit Suisse sophomore apps open in September and onward
