you go through final rounds with a firm and then they don't get back to you the following week with either an offer or rejection? is this the same as being rejected - just that the firm is not so polite as to give you a call and let you know? or is this akin to being placed on the waiting list when applying to college - just without them telling you? either way its extremely frustrating. the level of transparency in recruiting for IBD is absolutely atrocious I do not see why either applicants or college career centers don't do something about it.

they might be "looking to see who else is out there".

happened to me a week ago. they made me RE-superday. called an hour after and declined.

waste of time, honestly.
