BB Weird Phone Call and Office Visit

I had an on campus interview with a BB for sales and trading last week. Never heard anything back until today when the recruiter called me asking to set up another call soon. I told her I was going to be in NY the next few days so it would have to be next week. She then called back a few hours later asking if I wanted to come in to the office instead since I will be in NY. I asked if it will be an interview and she said "not a formal interview. You will just meet with some representatives in a conference room." I have NOT had a superday for the position. Does anyone have any idea what this is or what the purpose of the visit will be?

Basically like an informational interview -- they'll ask you a few questions and decide if they want to move forward or not. it's more casual than an actual interview but you should treat it like one and do research and everything before going in obviously.

This. Just a preliminary screen in person instead of on the phone. Even if they don't say its an interview, be ready for technical questions. Although the actual meeting will probably be more relaxed, and fit based.

"Why S&T?" "Why XYZ Bank?" "Walk me through your resume" "What questions do you have for us?" will most likely encapsulate most of the interview.
