Bank of America Sophomore 2021

They opened apps today but I didn't see anything sophomore specific app. Are we supposed to apply through the general app? Is the app even open?

Seems like it's just not up yet. There's no way they'd do LATAM sophomore but not for other groups (then again JPM does that).

S&T isn't up for juniors either. Idk. The HR email said that GCIB would all be posted at 5edt.

i checked today and they got rid of the LATAM soph app? so maybe no sophs for 2021? rip

I have friends at BAML. Sophomore recruiting is set to happen, just a little bit later. August 1 from what I've heard.

Are there any disadvantages to rolling? I feel like if I wait a couple days my application won't get lost in the mass applications being sent in within the first couple days. Maybe I am wrong though

Anyone have any insights regarding the timelines for hirevues and eventual first rounds/super days?

Bump. Anyone get word on the timeline? Last year they ran the first superday early sept and then mid to late September for the 2nd one

Bro like 1 or 2 kids on here have said they got either a HV or offer. Take that with a grain of salt because if they actually started the process than you'd be seeing more posts about HVs

Damn 3.7 at target with two finance internships including one boutique IB with networking. No HV for NYC. Oh well can't say I'm super surprised though considering how competitive sophomore programs are. Plus a 3.7 isn't anything to write home about I guess.

I feel like you'll deff get a HV man, most of the kids who are getting HV's either knew somebody or had an exploding offer. I would not worry

These offers may have been linked to the prior freshman diversity pipeline program akin to GS's Undergrad Camp. It seems "normal" recruiting has yet to take place. Also, keep in mind that, along with UBS, BofA has historically some of the larger sophomore classes.

Got mine this morning, email says it will take 15 mins -- was yours 3-5 questions then?

Got a hirevue without networking. Anyone know if hirevues are at all selective like the ones for GS? Wondering if my submission will get touched by recruiters.

BofA HVs are known to be very selective - just like GS - so, congrats for getting one, especially without networking. The sophs that get HVs for BofA are either top candidates from targets, kids who networked aggressively, or just by pure luck of the draw which seems to be your case. They take anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks to get back to you with info about a super day. With this particular most recent wave of HVs, expect a super day to be in the next week or 2. Good luck because it's only getting harder

3.9+ from target with networking didn't get an hv with ib after freshman year so I guess it's ok not getting one

Anybody get a flat our rejection? Application portal just shows "Application Received" - does that change if they are reviewing it?

From what I understand offers will be coming out either tomorrow or Friday. Heard before the weekend

When did you get your offer? A bunch of people had super days this week and interview tomorrow. Were you a part of the earlier round?

  • Intern in IB-M&A

Wow nice. Assuming you interviewed last week right? Did your interviewer or whoever called you say if more offers are coming??

For those who got offers, what's your sophomore intern compensation? Feel like their salary is mad low. Got $20/hr for an expected 60 hrs a week, $30/hr for OT. 10 weeks. Meaning $12k pre-tax no OT.

an interview specifically for the latam group? I knew that group recruited separately at JPM didn't know it was that way at BAML too

Got HV on the 24th. Non-target, diversity summer program, 3.7ish, networked pretty hard. I'd assume there's another round if I got the HV so recently but does anyone know?

and you haven't heard about a SD yet?  did a hirevue a week or two before you but wasn't part of the SD group this week so hoping i may still have a chance

Are offers from this week's SDs coming out today or will they be out next week?

  • Intern in IB-M&A

Keep each other updates here with offers from SDs this week. Think they will most likely be coming out today

  • Intern in IB-M&A

My contact said expect results before the weekend "most likely". Usually they don't call candidates until after they wrap up work for the day/weekend, they are usually pretty busy Friday afternoon trying to finalize things for the weekend. So if they call today I'd expect it to be later. No clue though, this is just my guess 

  • Intern in IB-M&A

My contact just informed me decisions have been made for this week SDs. Offers are given out super randomly, just depends if your interviewer wants to call you tonight or Monday.

  • Intern in IB-M&A

Lol banks never inform rejects for super days. It's a legal liability. They only inform rejects for everything before SD, so you can imagine anxiety is through the roof for all of us who haven't heard today

If they make additional offers on Monday any guesses as to what time of day? 

  • Prospect in IB-M&A

There is a comment a bit further up that says "just depends if your interviewer wants to call you tonight or Monday." People who received offers already: were you called by your interviewer/s? Is this standard practice after super days? I sort of assumed it'd be a call from HR and not interviewer.

Has anyone heard anything yet today? Do y'all think they will call more in the afternoon/night than during the day? Also congrats for everyone who did get it!!
