Can I Apply to Both GS Spring and Summer Internships?

Hi All,

I realize the inane/boring nature of my post, but I'm unable to figure this out for myself and have decided to break my perpetual lurker status in the hopes that you all may be able to enlighten me.

I'm currently in the process of applying for Goldman's Spring Program, whose deadline coincides with my school's summer internship deadline. There's only one space to indicate your position preference (summer analyst/spring program), and as far as I can see, you can only submit one application to the GS system every recruiting cycle.

Does that mean that I can only apply to the Spring or Summer program? If so, which would you suggest that I apply to as a sophomore from a target school?

Also as a sidenote, would my candidacy for investment banking be compromised if I indicated a secondary interest in investment management as well? I'd strongly prefer to be placed into investment banking, but I don't want to limit my choices either.

Thanks so much for your help, especially on topics (GS, sophomore internships, etc.) that are all so overplayed in the forums.

Spring internship is for 2012 grads. Summer internship for 2011 grads. When are you graduating? That should answer your question.

I'm graduating in 2012, but GS also accepts sophomores from our school (it's a super target) into their summer internship program (although generally into investment management rather than investment banking). You make a good point about the target audience of the programs, though -- I guess I should aim for the spring program?
