I've read a lot in the forum about networking - in fact there's even a networking guide I can buy. However, WSO is quite a US-focused website so I assume networking is a big deal for New York IB's.
I'm a student at a target uni (think UCL, Warwick, Imperial, LSE) for BB investment banks in London. How much does networking play a part in UK SA and full time offers? Is it sufficient that I just do the online application?
