Hey guys, this topic has been beaten to death on the forums, but just wanted a place to vent/share and see what the community is saying.
For background, I'm from a semi-target (mid-tier Ivy), 4.0GPA, some internships in, PE, VC but nothing banking related. I understand on paper I am an okay candidate but I'm feeling a bit discouraged.
Received rejections from most banking diversity/veteran (I'm a vet) programs - got into one through some army/highschool connections and just received arejection call today. It was my top choice firm, and I've been networking here for two years so it was pretty discouraging.
Anyway, I know the solution is to keep my head up and continue, but just wanted to hear everyone's stories about how it turned out all okay in the end.
