Morgan Stanley Dilemma — early action or regular

HR at MS said to apply by July 16th if you want to be considered for the early process. They also said they "strongly recommend" you apply early if you feel ready to interview in August.

The problem is, I have networked extensively with analysts from my school from the class of '17 who are starting in mid-July. I feel like I'd be at an advantage if I applied later so that they will be screening my resume.

I also got invited to an ISG summer session in late July, and I'm wondering what is the point of a networking event after apps are due

Do it now. If you are not selected in the early rounds, you are pushed to the "regular" pool.

Who told you you will be pushed to the "regular" pool? I thought if you aren't selected in the early rounds you're not allowed to apply regular

The flyer that HR sent out said: "If you do not hear back by September 5, you will be automatically considered in the Standard Timeline and should not re-submit your application(s)"

Is this for the summer analyst position or analyst?

Also I received an interview for the summer analyst early process last year.

App is out now - I have the same concerns as you, where I feel like I need to meet more people. What is the advantage of early decision?

It's fucking MS, not some mid tier shop. Apply now.
