This is extremely helpful, thanks so much! Surprised to see how few banks are remaining / how many banks have already finished.

Many offices of Jefferies have already handed out offers. Wouldn't be surprised if NY kicks off soon.

Did MUFG finish recruitment? I've seen some ads for 2022 internships but on their website, it says that their are no applications at this time?

I think you might be a good fit for Tobin & Co. It's a boutique out of Charlotte. The owner is Justine Tobin, former Goldman Guru, she boasts a 90% placement into BB's for her summer analysts. I would highly recommend looking into this, it's too great of an opportunity to pass up.

Re: Boston Banks, I think Shea is doing some first rounds this week (I've heard they have a spring cycle and fall cycle, so they're far from done). Under the MM part, is "Ares" referring to Ares Management or Aeris Partners?

my second post here so sorry if i mess up the reply chain idk. i have networked heavily with deutsche (mds, analysts, hr, etc. one of my better opps just bc of alumni placement from my school), and can confidently say 2022 ibd positions are pretty much wrapped up, with maybe like 1-2 more waves left going into june/july. (2-3 of my close friends did their SDs 2 weeks ago and got corp fin-ibd offers) i applied to fic s&t 2022 so i know for a fact those timelines and superdays happen in the fall (july/aug/sept to oct). my mentor at db actually reached out to hr for a complete timeline so ill update once i get more info for you. hope that helps.

Apparently SVB Leerink is still hiring, expanded class size, so may be possible to interview with them still

No they have began target non-diversity already and are nearly done with that I believe. Not sure about non-target tho

Best piece of advice - target the BBs. -> MS, GS, JPM, and City are your best bet.

Avoid banks such as DB,  UBS, MUFG, Nomura, etc. Really not worth your time. Too much stress with low pay.

Had the opportunity for a first round about 3 weeks ago, networked heavily. Target/semitarget

Hey all, I've been unlucky in that I still haven't secured an offer from anywhere. I know the BBs, except Citi is still recruiting. What other reputable ones are still possible to get an offer from?

Jul 7, 2021 - 2:39pm

Very doubtful that this is true. They're doing "early" superdays in the next 2-3 weeks and multiple sources have said that other interviews will take place throughout July, August, and potentially even September. No way they're already 100% done.

Bro I just talked to an MD and an HR last week, they said they are going to review resumes at the beginning of Aug. 

Whatever ur intention or ur resource is, Barclays is far from done
