    I have an offer from BNP Paribas and Nomura. Which one would people recommend me to do? Thanks
    Bear in mind this is second-hand information given to me anecdotally, the BNP Paribas programme was far superior. From a second year at my university who did both last year I think.

    But the BNPP's fast-track opportunities are below 'meh' level. Don't know about Nomura.

    Any idea of what firms do offer reasonable fast track opportunities?

    Cheers

    ah nice - which divsion for JPM - IBD or markets?
    Neither: Technology. They seem to put a lot of emphasis on their tech division, so it'll be interesting to see what it's like.

    Oh really? Do you know more information than just that?

    I must be getting them confused with someone else then. Wasn't there a bank that openly said 60% or so of SWers got into their Summer Internship?

    Mate done BNP and BarCap last year. goes BNP a waste of time, put all his effort into BarCap got fast track. for markets CS are the best for fast track I think theyfast track most people.

    From some of my mates who did Nomura last year none of them got fast tracked, im not sure they actually fast track at all tbh.

    Speaking to some people I know at BarCap they say they may do 'direct' fast tracks less this year, but that may not be accurate.

    JPM fast track very few i think around 10-20%, if you really work your ass off at Goldman youll get a direct fast track.

    All this is for markets btw.

    I had 3 offers rejected two because I have exams and essay deadline straight after easter hols, so cant realistically do more than one.

    Hope that helps.

    Yeah, I had a few friends going to BNPP and apparently none of them (1-2?) went through.

    Also, received my RBS rejection just this morning. Only Citi, BarCap and ICAP to go, yay.

    Yes I decided I'll do BarCap (of course) and BNPP. Kinda disappointed now hearing that they don't really fast-track or very rarely. I guess we'll see. Should still be worth doing it though.

    Has anyone got an offer for Citiquest yet?

    Are they slowly rejecting people or have offers been given out?
