Lmao, GS hasn't even opened apps for SA 2021. Hardly over.

You are a bit late to the game buddy. My younger brother already has offers for SA 2025 from all the BBs and EBs.

Even if this is bait, it's pretty terrible and not funny. You could've at least gotten creative with it

As a sophomore that just recently signed a 2021 offer from target, the 2021 cycle isn't over. Many banks haven't even opened applications yet. As a freshman it doesn't hurt to start early, but apps and covid shouldn't be your concerns. Just chill.

Congrats on the offer - diversity process or just one of the banks that went early?

not sure if this is a troll or hardo post, but... transferring from community college to semi-target in the fall as a Sophomore, following because I don't want to miss 2022 deadlines. Hopefully can do some last minute SA 2021 boutique networking when I get on campus in the Fall.
