    So many companies opening up their applications are sort of encouraging me to get started applying but I'm still in the process of preparing a new CV and trying to put in the best possible application, anyone else feel this?

    I didn't check. I saw them post on my Facebook feed saying it was open.

    There's no rush. I'm not planning on submitting anything until the end of the month.

    Same as you. Won't apply 'til early-mid september, though; I am completing a 1 month internship and even if unrelated I believe it will help if listed on my CV.
    I'd like to wait more 'cause I have some projects for september-october, but that would be too late. So early septemebr will be for me!

    Is it pointless to apply without relevant work experience and finance-related ECs? Studying at a target with top GPA at least... I know I'm dumb.
    I believe that with top GPA and coming from a target you have solid chances... just my 2 cents though.

    JPM ask if you're in your penultimate year of study for the summer application. I technically won't be, but am looking at undertaking a masters. Do you guys reckon I should select yes or no?

    EDIT: no stupid competency questions for the application either?

    Yeah but Loughborough is doing well anyway, not that surprising really

    None of these applications expire or anything if you keep your application as a draft for a long period, do they? Aware UBS deletes your draft after 30 days - any others do weird stuff like this?

    I'm interested in investment banking and most banks offering good SA's within this area are BB's.

    Credit Suisse is also open. You guys who are waiting before sending in your applications seem to be split between people waiting to finish a internship so they can add to their CV and those it want to take more time on their application.

    Also JP does not seem to have a cover letter or am I being a idiot and not seeing it

    There are two classical motivational questions that are mandatory. In addition to that, you can attach optional CL under CV by choosing from drop-down menu.

    Can you put an internship that you are currently undertaking down on your cv and apply or do you have to wait until youre finished?
