Didn't see any posts related to this topic, so wanted to create a thread where current freshman could discuss their recruiting efforts for Summer 2020. I applied for IB, GCM, and Quantitative Finance, what about you guys?

Wow applications are released really early. Is there any advantage to applying right now rather than later? Will we be hearing back sooner or is it the same timeline?

Mar 14, 2019

Well there's no advantage to applying late.. I always apply ASAP. If you have a network it doesn't matter when you applied for resume pushes. Earlier is always better unless you are still recruiting for this summer & could still add more meat to your resume

Is the Hirevue automatically given? I applied and never got one, but had a buddy who received one right away.

Mar 14, 2019

I feel like they're automatic, because I literally got it the second I submitted submit

Mar 19, 2019

Echoing this. I received one the second I applied. If you didn't get an email, check your application portal and it'll show action required.

its diversity only for sophomores(class of 2022). I talked to an MD and anyone non diversity doesnt make it past HR even with a push.

Mar 14, 2019

yea that's what i thought but the application is really easy so i just did it anyways because I thought it would at least show interest

MS might keep the file on hand if it passes the system screen. What's your GPA and do you go to a MS core school?

So do non-diversity people not even get a first-round phone interview? Or is it after that phone interview when non-diversity get dropped?

Does anyone know the questions for MS Equity Research and Fixed Income Research? Thx!
