Hi, back in october or november, I applied for the 2011 Rothschild gap year programme in london. I haven't heard anything from them so far except the automatic email thanking me for my application.
Is anyone else in the same position, or has anyone heard back from them?
Or anyone who did it last year, when did you hear from them after your application?

Yep I'm in exactly the same position as you
No worries mate, its totally understandable.. should've just said. I got rejected by Rothschild today and bank of england last week but luckily I got my second choice uni so it's all good. Still waiting for my first choice
Damn only 8 places? I only found out about this last week and sent them an email asking if it would still be possible to apply, in spite of the Dec. deadline. I guess that'll be a no... Anybody have a phone number for HR? I'm not getting an answer by email about this.
Otherwise, I just got my uni offer deferred upon request. Any ideas for what similar programs are available even if deadlines have already passed - you never know! (except BofE, Deloitte, KPMG, IBM Future, and those - there was a list on TSR with about 8 firms)

Those are pretty much all the schemes available in the finance region.
If you've missed the deadline, what makes you think you could just ring up and get offered a job?
But try Deloitte and KPMG, they're filled on a first come first served basis so they may still be accepting applications.
Otherwise go to university and skip the tuition fee rises.
Because some people may ultimately choose not to accept their job offers and there may still be places available? Although obviously that would still mean having to go through the same process and selection criteria as the other candidates.
Yes i looked at KPMG but they only have Manchester and Plymouth spots left (or something of the sort) and Deloitte closed their application system already Do any of these companies offer similar schemes outside of the UK?
Thanks though, and have fun at Rothschild! I saw you have a place, congrats and good luck
