D. E. Shaw Generalist Intern Final Round

Had a phone interview for the generalist position 2 weeks ago and got a call back for on site interviews next week. Any idea what kind of questions to expect? My first round was basically just a walk through of my resume, and I made it really clear that I have zero finance exp. It doesn't look like we have any alumni currently at the firm either, so would love to hear from anyone who's gone through the process.
