    Well, If i can't get Barclays or UBS then I guess the likes of GS, JPM, MS and BAML are completely off the list.

    I am not sure what you're asking
    Sorry that phrase was not very well written, ahaha. Could you tell me how long after applying did they get back to you saying you have an interview

    I am aware of people who get no interview/offers from lower tier banks but end up at a higher tier bank but surely those scenarios are not very common?

    Yeah I agree, SWs can be a lottery at times.

    Also congrats on UBS and Happy Birthday!

    I got an offer the next day as well. That's how it works, if u don't get an offer you are either rejected (but i assume they would inform you straight away) or you are put on the waiting list. That's how rolling basis recruiting work. So since you did not hear back from them, you are most likely on the waiting list as you are not convincing enough to get an offer, but still good enough not to be rejected straight away.
    Again, until someone actually asks HR about this, it's all conjecture.

    getting an offer at any bank is not very common. these things are all competitive. luck has a huge factor.

    Yeah, honestly GS are a weird one. it seems like they have a tendency to give offers to random people.

    Where can I find more about cultures/ethics in each of the SW places?
    Some have small sections on their site but I feel that's only for attraction.
    Don't know what sources to trust on google, those that worked there and currently don't usually have ill intent towards the firm?

    It´s hard to tell from the outside. Some investment bankers I spoke with said "the culture question" is ******** and no one cares about that (literally I wouldn´t recommend asking someone at a networking event: How is your culture different from other banks? Some just give you a nice short answer, but some of them were honest and just said: "That´s a bad question.")

    Congrats on the UBS offer. Must be a nice birthday present.

    Only my BNP Pariba application has gone from "received" to under review since I applied 3 weeks ago. Guess I can't even pass the initial screening, haha.
