Just thought that I'd make a thread for this year's MS early insight programs.
Does anyone know when we will start hearing back from MS?

How were the video interview questions? Any technicals?

Feb 26, 2018

no technicals, it was basic questions like why IB?, what are your 3 best qualities, etc.

Does anyone know when we might be hearing back?

Mar 3, 2018

Apparently in past years if you don't get in they don't notify you

Mar 3, 2018

Wow that sucks :o
When is a good time to lose hope then? haha

Mar 3, 2018

Personally I'd say like a week to 2 weeks before the event

Mar 3, 2018

Makes sense, thanks!

Mar 9, 2018

did they ask any firm specific questions or was it all generic?

Apr 19, 2018

why MS lol

Mar 11, 2018

Any other questions?

Mar 3, 2018

Applied as well, did my hirevue a couple days ago

Mar 7, 2018

Got an email today saying the decision will come out in two weeks.

Mar 7, 2018

same

Mar 9, 2018

Oh I got that email too!! I hope I hear back from other firms in time

Mar 9, 2018

Oh I got that email too!! I hope I hear back from other firms in time

Mar 15, 2018

Does anyone know what date this event will be held on?

Mar 15, 2018

Invites out for Women's program

Mar 15, 2018

How & when were you notified? Does your application center show an update?

Mar 15, 2018

App center is the same (under review), but I received an official email with lots of details, and it says it has interviews on the second day, and can lead to an offer directly, or to another round of interviews.
Also I got the email at 4:56 EST lol

Mar 15, 2018

Do you know if all of the invites went out today?

Mar 15, 2018

The RSVP deadline is Feb 25th (pretty far off), so doesn't seem like they plan on sending a second wave.
But maybe they will send another wave tomorrow since they said that we should hear back by the end of this week.

Mar 15, 2018

Did everyone receive invites today or just Women's Program? Any guys that apply to the Black/Hispanic Day get an invite?

Mar 15, 2018

No news yet on the LGBT insights plan. Has anybody else heard for it?

Mar 15, 2018

Did anyone just receive an invite to apply the Veteran's Early Insight program?

I'm a bit confused as I applied for a different program and don't qualify for the veteran's program.

Mar 15, 2018

Same

Mar 15, 2018

^^^^

Mar 16, 2018

Mar 16, 2018

Just got the invite for the Black & Hispanic event

Mar 16, 2018

Congrats!

Mar 17, 2018

Does the event also have interviews on the 2nd day like the women's program?

Mar 17, 2018

Yeah it does

Mar 16, 2018

Just got the invite for the Black & Hispanic event

Mar 20, 2018

I'm going to apply for the Black & Hispanic Program. I applied for the Early Insights Program, did the HireVue, and am now waiting to hear back.

Work hard, work clean, & most of all do not give up.

Mar 16, 2018

so all the invites came out today?

Mar 16, 2018

Still no word on LGBT Insights

Mar 19, 2018

Anybody know if all invites are out?

Mar 19, 2018

I havent heard back regarding the LGBT one yet. Got an email March 7th saying decisions will be made in the next two weeks...

Mar 21, 2018

Same

Mar 21, 2018

Still havent heard back from LGBT one... anyone else?

Mar 21, 2018

Same

Mar 21, 2018

I think we will hear back tomorrow because I got an email on March 7th saying we will hear back in 2 weeks.

I got into the Goldman Pride Summit and I heard back really late, just 2 weeks and 1 day before the event.

Mar 21, 2018

Just heard back half an hour ago.

Mar 21, 2018

Same.

Mar 21, 2018

I still haven't gotten anything back...did you receive an invitation?

Mar 21, 2018

Yeah. It says RSVP by 25th so I would wait for another wave. Besides, there're so many events that day in NYC there definitely will be people turning down the invitation (like me loll).

Mar 23, 2018

Do you know how large these insight days are (like how many people are invited)

Mar 21, 2018

For those who applied to the Women's event and/or the Black&Hispanic event, did you guys get a rejection email if you didn't receive it, or did they only send acceptances and no rejections?

Mar 21, 2018

Did anyone hear back from the Veterans one?

Mar 21, 2018

Damn, got an email but forgot to apply to the veterans one. Does veterans = diversity? Interesting, never knew asians were considered diversity.

Mar 22, 2018

Asians really aren't for most of these programs.

Mar 22, 2018

I'm suprised I got an invite then lol

Mar 21, 2018

I just got an email invite for the Women's Early Insight Program so I guess they're still sending out emails. It says for the second day its an interview with Fixed Income. Is Fixed Income the only one that's interviewing Early Insight candidates?

Mar 21, 2018

Just got the invite from the LGBT program - it came out today.

Mar 21, 2018

is there an update in the application portal after the invite email is sent out?

Mar 21, 2018

got an invite today for Black, Hispanic, Native American in global capital markets

Mar 21, 2018

Does anyone know if these programs low-key have an interview toward the end or is a pipeline for their superday?

Mar 21, 2018

The IB Black & Hispanic event has interviews on the second day. Assuming the others do as well.

Mar 22, 2018

Are they still sending out acceptances/rejections?

Mar 22, 2018

I would cross fingers until tomorrow at 4pm EST. Then, if there's no invite, I'd say its a no-go.

Mar 22, 2018

Did anyone apply to the 2018 inside access program?

Mar 22, 2018

I just got an email about the inside access day. Anybody know what the difference between that and the early insights is?

Mar 23, 2018

Curious about this as well!

Mar 22, 2018

People who received invites--are you sophomores or freshmen?

Mar 24, 2018

Just received an invite to the Veterans one for IB (am a current sophomore)

Mar 23, 2018

Nice, congrats!

Mar 24, 2018

Do you know if these insight days involve interviews?

Mar 27, 2018

I'm not sure, I think there is probably a good chance though so I am going to go into it prepared for an interview

Mar 24, 2018

Does anyone know if the interviews on the second day are first round or final round interviews?

Mar 24, 2018

it said that you'll either get an offer or an invite for more interviews so I'm assuming it can go either way.

I'm curious as to whether they'll be technical or behavioral in nature??

Mar 24, 2018

Do you know which of the early insights programs offer interviews

Mar 25, 2018

I got an invite for Black, Hispanic, Native American in Equity Research. Still waiting to hear how to travel/transportation is going to work out though. Does anyone know how the interviews go? I'm not sure if I'm expected to come in with technicals.

Mar 26, 2018

Did anyone get an invite for the Freshman Enhancement program?

Mar 26, 2018

I just got rejected.. I've been rejected from programs of multiple firms so far. I qualify for the programs I apply to, am a freshman at a target (not supertarget), have a 3.9 GPA and good ECs (some finance related). I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong??

Mar 26, 2018

Honestly same. Hang in there, a recruiter for the BAML program said they had over two thousand applicants.

Mar 26, 2018

Thanks! Good luck to you, these programs probably are insanely competitive but it seems like everyone on WSO gets accepted to all of them lol

Mar 26, 2018

If you don't mind me asking, were you rejected from early insights or freshman enhancement? I actually applied for the latter but haven't heard back so I'm wondering if they're still making decisions.

Mar 27, 2018

Early Insights.

Mar 26, 2018

what's insider access day vs early insights?

Mar 29, 2018

Few questions: are people flying or train-ing in the morning of the event, or are you going the day before and getting a hotel?

Also, are there interviews for the LGBT early insights event as well?

Apr 1, 2018

taking the train in from a nearby city the morning of, the day doesn't begin until 10:30am.

your acceptance email tells you if you'll have interviews on the second day

Apr 1, 2018

i think everyone got interviews on 2nd day for IMD? right?
