Yes, I know a few people who have already been accepted. This week is the first virtual training session.

Junior target here. I also had a follow-up in mid December and received the email about being under consideration. No decision yet...

I'm a senior, but there are 2 juniors at my non-target school that received offers. (IBD and S&T)

I am utterly surprised at the caliber of students SEO recruits. I know both of them and IMHO, they both are of very low caliber - sub 3.0 GPA, no extracurriculars. The same was the case with the students from the year before.

Either you are very mistaken, or your friends somehow forged their transcripts. It's extremely rare that someone gets into the SEO IB and S&T programs with a sub 3.5 GPA - especially from a non-target. Very curious about to whom you are referring to regarding last year's class as well.

@DiggsRTC

I'm not one to put anyone out there, so I won't tell you who they are; however, if you were part of the class last summer, I am pretty sure you can identify who the 2 non-targets were. I know them very well since we are a very 'tight-knit group,' (only a handful of students who know what ibanking is) and I know there's no way they could have forged their transcripts.

I will also say that their GPA's might be an exception to the norm. I know a couple other SEO students from 3 years ago - they all had >3.5 GPA's; however, not the same caliber as you would find with kids who got in the 'regular' way (Networking, tons of EC's and the usual nonsense).

SEO...A few of friends got into the program (I went through the process myself, but did not get in which, in hindsight, worked out well). Good program to get into, but interview process leaves much to be desired.

Received my offer - not sure when they plan to stop giving offers this year

Does anyone know the list of IB firms and consulting firms, SEO partnered with this year for internships?
