    Converted RBS today!

    Not sure what my plan is for next summer, but it's nice to know I've got somewhere in the bag.

    Converted = got an offer for Summer internship from them?

    How do you do that? I thought they all fast tracked you to AC but that's it.

    Oh right! I didn't know they did ACs so early - is that just RBC or most others?

    RBC don't offer SWs. I wouldn't say most other, but I've hear a fair few do that.

    Yes, it would be great. Last year the thread was full of these things.

    BS. Competition has never and will probably never be that high for SWs. Even Goldman only get 50 apps/place. You only get over 100 apps/place for summer, and even less so for grad apps.


    To the SWers, which banks have held summer ACs for SWers so far?

    What would you say is the standard "professional" background of a successful applicant for SA IBD in London BBs? I'm aware of the target/non-target issues, etc.

    BAML said 6000 applicants for 60 places, so who knows, competition might just be racking up.

    BAML have sent out numerical / logic tests to be done.. then providing those have been passed, ACs in the summer.
