Has anyone heard back for the west coast insight day application? They say we will be notified no later than the 15th of March

I just applied today. I'm assuming they will notify everyone on the same day (the 15th).

That's what I'm assuming as well. Are you a sophomore?

3/12/18

First year. I was thinking about in the future though applying to programs as freshman/sophomore/junior because I have junior standing and could just change my intended graduation year. Not sure if that's against the rules or something.

3/12/18

Does anyone know if this is a new program and how selective it is?

3/12/18

Pretty sure it's fairly selective given that Goldman will pay for travel and lodging for those accepted

3/13/18

But what does fairly selective mean? 50%? 25%? 5%? Less?

3/14/18

does anyone know if they give preference to students attending schools on the west coast?

3/15/18

anyone hear back yet?

3/15/18

I haven't heard anything yet

3/15/18

I haven't heard anything. Under yalls upcoming events section on the my GS profile page does it say March 15th under date assigned?

3/15/18
3/15/18

Same here. I thought they would tell us the 16th?

3/15/18

The info sheet says that accepted applicants will be notified by March 15th. So today. Not sure when they will notify applicants that are not accepted.

Just emailed the lady in charge...she said they would let us know about selections for West Coast Insight Day by Monday. For those applying to Houston's, y'all should know by tomorrow she said.

Hi do you guys think the West Coast Insight is more useful or the Pride Summit? I am pretty much only interested in IBD but I know Pride is three days versus one day for West Coast Insight.

3/15/18

Not sure, I don't have the ability to utilize diversity recruiting so it's definitely the best option for me. Also I know that at the end of insight day there is an opportunity to receive a super day interview offer.

3/15/18

Wait really? Who did you hear that from? That sounds awesome. So they would give you a guaranteed offer to super day later in the summer? Do you know if most people get it at the event or are they pretty selective, and how do they decide who gets it-- do they do quasi interviews there or closely monitor people or throw you into a case study?

3/15/18

I have no idea. I'm assuming it's pretty competitive considering they are willing to pay for travel and boarding.

3/15/18

Also I read about the superday interview on WSO

3/16/18

Could you possibly give me the link to where you read about the superday offer on WSO? Thank you!

Anybody hear back yet?

3/16/18

Haven't heard anything for the insight day. However I did get accepted to the GS LA symposium this morning. I received an email inviting me to join. The GS events page did not update at all and still says "under review." I'm guessing that the notification of acceptance to the insight day will also be through an email.

3/16/18

Has no one still heard back for either the West Coast or Houston Insight Days?

3/17/18

Haven't heard back for either yet

3/19/18

Anyone hear back?

3/19/18

Still haven't heard

3/19/18

I'm going to email them today for an update.

3/19/18

Just emailed the lady. She said that she will have selections out by EOD today or tomorrow.

3/19/18

Do you know if that's for SF, LA or both?

3/19/18

mine was for the event in sf

3/19/18

So if I didn't get an email does that mean I wasn't accepted? Or do they notify rejections too? Mine still says under review.

3/19/18

I'm guessing if we didn't get an email we got rejected

3/19/18

Isn't the event only taking place in SF? I thought the preference selection was were you wanted to intern at junior year

3/19/18

Has anyone heard for Houston?

3/19/18

Nope. Mine still says "under review"

Any idea of what the event is actually supposed to be like? Trying to gauge how to prep for an Insight Day.

3/19/18

Did you get a acceptance email yet?

3/19/18

Is this basically like a first round?

3/20/18

It's sort of like a first round in that it can lead to a super day interview offer for next year

3/20/18

if anyone knows anything more or wants to discuss pm me!

3/19/18

im in the same boat! pm me

3/20/18

so no email by now means rejection? or do they send official rejection emails?

3/20/18

If you are going to the SF event, feel free to PM me if you wanna talk about it. Also, if you know anything about how Insight Days are structured, please lmk

3/20/18

GS just sent out the rejection emails

3/20/18

Hmmmm....I applied to the SF event and have not heard anything yet. Are all acceptance/rejections out?

3/20/18

Still haven't gotten anything

3/23/18

Have you heard back? I still haven't. Probably a rejection

3/20/18

I just got into the program as well. Feel free to PM me if you know anything about it

3/20/18

Will anyone be attending the GS LA symposium this Friday?

3/21/18

Does anyone have an estimation of how many people usually attend this event? Like what are the historical numbers.
