    Hey there, I've left it late in gaining a internship for consulting for my penultimate year summer. I've read a few threads asked by people trying to get a final year IB internship - will I also be able to apply in my 3rd year by saying I wish to pursue a gap year and by informing them my plans for the year?
    Cheers

    i came here looking for information regarding this aswell. I heard you have to say something like your going to pursue a masters degree.

    thats what they mean by penultimate, so you can get one in your final year.

    Careful - they won't always accept this as a equivalent to it being your penultimate year of undergrad.

    I believe summer internship applications should still be open for most consultancies however? Or at least some... or definitely at least one

    And a second firm. Some more niche firms will also accept final year interns with a view to immediate hiring at the end of the internship.

    Does anybody know of final year students who were successful with their application to a summer internship at a consultancy firm?
