Hey guys!

I'm currently studying at one of the top business schools in Europe (if not #1) here in the UK and have had quite an unsuccessful recruiting season, with no offer received (not even off-cycles). At this point, what can I do? Is it possible to apply for full-time again this coming summer? Because I know some banks won't allow you to apply again since you've used up all your application quota. Thank you in advance for your kind advice!
