Morgan Stanley Industrial Placement

Hey guys, I'm a rising senior trying for a last shot at off-cycle internships. For some background, I have done decent internships in Big 4 research/ Corp Dev Investment teams, but no banks. I know my internship exp part is lacking but I'm trying to make up for it by extensive networking - well as much as it is possible during this pandemic.

I have applied for the MS Hong Kong Industrial Placement under Prime Brokerage. How hard do you think it is to get in? I am from a HK semi-target uni, good GPA, and am trying to network with the team - had informational interviews with two ppl of the team till now.

Do you think I have a decent shot? Is there anything else I can do to improve my chances? Is there anything in Prime Brokerage/ Morgan Stanley that they particularly look for in the candidate?

I am trying my best to find off-cycle opportunities in HK and would really appreciate your insight/advice. Thanks!
