    If it's high (not from the UK so I'm not quite sure), state it. AAB sounds fine to me. Anyway I think it's most likely your experience / capacities which will be important.

    Is it nice? I thought of applying there. Didn't in the end. How's university in London? Got my place at UCL confirmed.
    What degree are you doing?
    It's okay i don't study so I like it lol. London is great. Partying is the best! I do mechanical engineering.

    When do you think you will apply for spring weeks?

    Can't wait to start yeah. Kind of a party-study-play-work-(sex) hard experience but let's face it, I like it. I'll be doing Economics myself.

    I don't know, I'm testing the water. I think I'll apply mid October. Early enough to be around the top of the list, late enough to be involved in some stuff at uni. I'm still working on my CV though. I need to figure out a smart way to talk about the not so smart stuff I did during my internship.. You?

    Hmm I guess thats the same time I'll apply. I want to boost my application. I didn't do a lot in my first year. My CV is really good tbh so it's just a matter of researching the companies.

    Sounds like the best option.
    Do you mind sending it to me? I'll send you mine afterward, maybe we can help each other out.

    For banks that offer divisional spring weeks (e.g. GS), is it a terrible idea to apply to a division that isn't your main interest but that'll be less competitive to get into just to get a good name on your CV?

    I don't think it's worth it personally, in that you just wouldn't enjoy it, and it wouldn't really give you a platform to apply to the division you'd like to be in come Summer, but it's not a terrible idea. I guess it's viable.

    Presentations which tell you what they want to hear in applications; networking so you can put a name to the experience. Pretty much setting you up to apply to them. See you there!

    I'm considering applying for a spring week at an investment bank, simply because I feel I need to at least try it before deciding on my career.

    I'm going to be doing Chem Eng via NatSci next year at Cambridge, will they be able to help me out and will there be careers fairs etc where I can ask questions? Because I know little about the ins and outs of applying etc.

    I asked this a few pages back. I think as long as you're at a target and can network well then your chances of an interview increase. If I'm wrong then someone can correct me but that's the feeling I've got after talking to a few people who have been through it.
    Is KCL a target or will I have to gate crash UCL's events haha.

    There will be plenty of events and societies at Cambridge to help, yes. Plenty of information online as well.
