    Hi all, figured I'd join in on the conversation on this thread. 2nd year Maths student doing a masters at Nottingham. Applied to a few banks for some spring weeks for IBD, got rejected by CS and haven't heard back from the others. I figure that I've left my applications too late, seeing as I've yet to send off my Barclays and UBS applications and it seems they're well into recruiting at this point. Haven't heard anything back from Citi, JPM, BNP or GS yet, although I think they're all non-rolling apart from Citi.

    Good luck to everyone else applying for spring weeks!

    Telephone interview for Morgan Stanley, I have no idea what to expect, but I'm excited


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    How was your interview? I had mine today and was extremely technical, I asked to explain may technical information and define technical terms of the industry as well, and in the end a maths killer question!

    For those who interviewed already with morgan stanley:


    What kind of questions are there in the interview? Recent economic news? Motivation? Walk me through your CV? Technicals?


    I would really appreciate your help
    Appart from explaining my CV all the other questions were extremely technical, we also spoke for a while about recent economic news (drop in oil price, Russia's crisis and Cuba) and I was asked about a recent IPO, also to how I'd evaluate a firm, what I'd look for in their stock figures to evaluate it etc. It was the traditional competency based and motivation interview, it was much more like a completely unstructured interview except the first questions.

    degree and uni? ive realised now ms are extremely flexible in their qs and ask qs dependent on degree and past work experience, that determines how technical your interview will be

    Don't lose hope. I have a similar profile.

    Semi-target - Cass
    Summer intenship - 2nd tier IB

    Applied to ~20 SW

    RBS test pass, HSBC test pass, MS int, BAML offer

    around 6 rejections.

    Just keep grinding, you'll get something.

    How did you find the HSBC numerical? I plan on doing it tomorrow. And tbh I don't think the uni actually matters that much, I'm at a 'Target' and I still seem to be having awful luck with these spring weeks lol

    SHL, fairly straight forward. Do some practice beforehand and you should be fine. Well given that at ACs etc.. most/all attendees are targets/semi-targets, I think it does play a role. I was at CS AC last year and the only 2 'non-targets' were myself and one manchester offer holder.

    Or at ICAP AC, everyone there was target/semi-target (european schools aswell) apart from one girl studying Mech Eng at City University.

    I would agree, it plays a role to the extent that it can determine whether you are invited to interview, but after that it's anyone's game.
