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?

2/24/18

How were the video interview questions? Any technicals?

2/26/18

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

2/28/18

Thanks so much! How many questions were there in total if you don't mind me asking?

2/28/18

Does anyone know when we might be hearing back?

3/3/18

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

3/3/18

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

3/3/18

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

3/3/18
3/9/18

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

4/19/18
3/11/18
3/3/18

Applied as well, did my hirevue a couple days ago

3/7/18

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

3/7/18
3/9/18

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

3/9/18

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

3/15/18

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

3/15/18

Invites out for Women's program

3/15/18

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

3/15/18

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

3/15/18

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

3/15/18

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.

3/15/18

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

3/15/18

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

3/15/18

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.

3/16/18

Anyone heard back from LGBT?

3/16/18

Just got the invite for the Black & Hispanic event

3/16/18
3/17/18

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

3/17/18
3/16/18

Just got the invite for the Black & Hispanic event

3/20/18

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.

3/16/18

so all the invites came out today?

3/16/18

Still no word on LGBT Insights

3/19/18

Anybody know if all invites are out?

3/19/18

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

3/21/18

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

3/21/18

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.

3/21/18

Just heard back half an hour ago.

3/21/18
3/21/18

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

3/21/18

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).

3/23/18

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

3/21/18

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?

3/21/18

Did anyone hear back from the Veterans one?

3/21/18

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

3/22/18

Asians really aren't for most of these programs.

3/22/18

I'm suprised I got an invite then lol

3/21/18

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?

3/21/18

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

3/21/18

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

3/21/18

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

3/21/18

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

3/21/18

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

3/22/18

Are they still sending out acceptances/rejections?

3/22/18

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

3/22/18

Did anyone apply to the 2018 inside access program?

3/22/18

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

3/23/18
3/22/18

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

3/24/18

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

3/23/18
3/24/18

Do you know if these insight days involve interviews?

3/27/18

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

3/24/18

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

3/24/18

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??

3/24/18

Do you know which of the early insights programs offer interviews

3/25/18

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.

3/26/18

Did anyone get an invite for the Freshman Enhancement program?

3/26/18

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??

3/26/18

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

3/26/18

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

3/26/18

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.

3/27/18

Early Insights.

3/26/18

what's insider access day vs early insights?

3/29/18

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?

4/1/18

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

4/1/18

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

4/1/18

Has anyone heard back about the Freshman Enhancement Program yet?

4/3/18

4/14/18
