2018 Goldman Sachs IBD Summer Analyst West Coast Insight Days

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).

Mar 11, 2018

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

Mar 12, 2018

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.

Mar 12, 2018

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

Mar 12, 2018

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

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

Mar 14, 2018

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

Mar 15, 2018

anyone hear back yet?

Mar 15, 2018

I haven't heard anything yet

Mar 15, 2018

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

Mar 15, 2018

Yep

Mar 15, 2018

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

Mar 15, 2018

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.

Good to know.

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.

Mar 15, 2018

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.

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?

Mar 15, 2018

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

Mar 15, 2018

Also I read about the superday interview on WSO

Mar 16, 2018

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

Anybody hear back yet?

Mar 16, 2018

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.

Mar 16, 2018

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

Mar 17, 2018

Haven't heard back for either yet

Mar 19, 2018

Anyone hear back?

Mar 19, 2018

Still haven't heard

Mar 19, 2018

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

Mar 19, 2018

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

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

Mar 19, 2018

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.

Mar 19, 2018

Yeah same

Mar 19, 2018

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

Mar 19, 2018

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

Mar 19, 2018

Has anyone heard for Houston?

Mar 19, 2018

Nope. Mine still says "under review"

Mar 19, 2018

Did you attach a CV?

Mar 19, 2018

Yes

Mar 19, 2018

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

Mar 19, 2018

Did you get a acceptance email yet?

Mar 19, 2018

Is this basically like a first round?

Mar 20, 2018

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

Mar 20, 2018

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

Mar 19, 2018

im in the same boat! pm me

Mar 20, 2018

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

Jun 4, 2018

.

Mar 20, 2018

GS just sent out the rejection emails

Mar 20, 2018

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

Mar 20, 2018

Still haven't gotten anything

Mar 23, 2018

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

Mar 20, 2018

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

Mar 20, 2018

Will anyone be attending the GS LA symposium this Friday?

Mar 21, 2018

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