Hello everyone,

I was wondering if someone else applied to this program, and if you know when can we expect to hear back? Thanks in advance.

Hey Prospective Monkey in

, I'm the WSO Monkey Bot and I'm here since nobody responded to your topic! Bummer...could just be unlucky but one of these topics will help shed some light:

Fingers crossed that one of those helps you.

who gets into de shaw's programs? honestly seems like anyone i know interested in banking who applied got flatout rejected even with good resumes - yes i know de shaw isnt a bank, just wondering what the profiles are like and how they differ from banking profiles. are they more interested in cs/quant majors?

I mean its a program catered to quants who typically have flat out insane resumes (US/international math competition placement and name brand software engineering internships). If you are interested in banking they almost definitely have no interest in you as a candidate. Since their name brand is quant I would imagine this program has the same spin on it. They do however have a fundamental investing program.

They told me to apply & included a personal comment about my resume... I'm not sure what this means

rejected lol. I even got an internal referral for the generalist internship and applied to that too along with the fellowships. Got rejected from both though

I applied last month and was accepted yesterday. I don't go to a target school, but my resume and application showed a clear inclination for business and technology (I think).
