    CV/CL

    > AC invite (numerical/trade simulation, presentation, HR interview)

    > Offer/Rejection

    I recieved a post AC rejection.

    Whether it's still worth applying, I would assume not. Although, I'm not particularly sure.

    Firstly the rings height seems to change in couples so the first two were up top and second two were down at the bottom. From that I suspect that the ring should be at the top so that rules out C. Then it looks like the x position of the ring seems to be the inverse of the one before so that cancels A. And to me it looks like a pendulum so the logical choice would be D however this is only a guess.
    Thanks bro!

    Hi guys,

    I go to Loughborough University Business School, got AAB in my A Levels, and am on track for a 1st in my degree which is business but heavily tailored towards maths and finance.

    I appreciate my chance is slim of getting an offer back from some of the spring weeks I applied to but just how slim is it?

    Thanks

    I'm pretty sure I replied a while back.

    L'boro decent university.. Places okayish for a non-target. A levels are average... might be a hinderance due to lack of uni strength.

    What's your profile?

    Past experiences / ECs / noticeable achievements?

    Thanks for the help, I only just created this account though.
    In terms of past experience, I have done a social media strategy and business plan for a company, had several accounting/administrative roles and interned at IBM a few years ago.
    In terms of extra-curricular, played for various sports teams, member of a few business and finance societies at university.
    Done some volunteering as well.

    Should be in with a shot, definitely worth applying.

    Good luck!

    Did you get any feedback from the AC / what was it like? I have mine on the 9th Jan. It seems like most people get AC invites, no?

    How much does being at a target uni matter? Like every single IB thread says the same thing if you don't go to a target you only have a slim chance...

    I go to durham uni and study law soo :/ BUT I did a gap year as a Credit TA at a BB also worked in the summer pre-university in the private banking divisions of two other BBs. In terms of ECs i publish articles on the TMT sector for my university investment fund and another online magazine, I also do legal pro bono scanning contracts. My a levels are A*A*Ab.

    If it really does matter about target unis that much I would think my work xp and ECs tilt the odds in my favour?

    I've noticed quite a lot of Durham students (on LinkedIn) with internships at BBs - with your experience, you'll be fine.

    No. Just don't leave it for weeks. The earlier you do it, the quicker your application is processed.
