MS Rejection - How does the process work exactly?
Just got rejected for MS S&T SA 2024 London. Although this is quite unexpected, I understand how random the processes are. But I was hoping if someone can offer some insight on how they actually do the screening.
So I have a decent CV + CL, go to a borderline semitarget, good grades (70%+). Last cycle I had 1 ac with aand some interviews with the banks. For MS specifically - I progressed to their second interview after the TI. This cycle, I passed their OT with literally the top scores (you can see them from the feedback) and even a better CV (I think at least, cuz I got another experience), but somehow they didn't even give a chance to interview...
If I were to speculate, I guess they perhaps kept the record of me in the system from the interviews with them last year. I remember itfrom cash equities and I performed extremely poor. But this speculation doesn't make a lot of sense because the cost of doing so doesn't seem to be justified. A more probable scenario could be that, it's a different person who looked at my profile, and he/she certainly formed divergent views compared to the person from last year, lol.
These are all speculations. It would be appreciated if someone with insight into this could provide more details. I'm just curious here.
