    Am I right in thinking that you can apply for spring weeks in second year if you're doing a 4 year degree?
    Yes.

    I normally just say "Dear [Morgan Stanley / Citigroup / Barclays etc.] Graduate Recruitment Team"

    Chances are the cover letter will be seen by a whole series of different people.

    How come I have seen people participating in SW at GS when they're on the last year of their bachelor? I thought this wasn't possible.

    Are you sure they are not doing a Spring Off-Cycle? They could be doing a two year Masters following their undergraduate, which would make them eligible for Spring Weeks again.

    Weird things happen.

    Possible situations:

    - 3 year degree + 2 year masters
    - Convinced HR somehow
    - Degree length was longer than usual

    etc

    Do you suggest creating a new account after a failed SW application or is it totally irrelevant?

    All of them had a 2 years masters afterwards. It's 3 years bachelor and optional to continue on 2 years masters afterwards, and we've a spot secured by law in 1 of 13 master programs if we've been offered a spot in the bachelor program.

    So since I am a second year student on a 3 year bachelor program, I possibly could apply to SW and Summer, since I have a secured masters afterwards?

    This sounds like the european model to me, if so it's all pretty much normal.

    Never said you weren't. If your masters is 2 years long, you can absolutely do the SW --> Summer --> grad path

    Would not recommend it as the computer screening systems at some banks are designed to spot this so you will be flagged.

    I would have to apply for both SW and Summer this year then, which I doubt you can given some of the banks only accept 1 application every 6 month!

    I would personally just apply for summer if I'm honest, it'd give you the option of starting straight after uni rather than staying the long haul of completing a 2 year masters programme. But it's up to you!
