Should get interviews no problem. Which other ones have you applied for?

I know someone who got on last year and they said that they will try and accommodate your preference, also I have done equity research in the past so it would be odd if I didn't think I could add the most value in an equities role.

Take my hat off to you with your WM experience.

Aren't you apprehensive competing against uni students? :P
Thanks

Yeah I'm a bit uneasy knowing i'm against FY students like you lol - Gives me more motivation to shine when it comes to skype interview and AC.

Other ones I've applied for are paid internships at BB's and Boutiques that I found out in my school.

It was good tbh - Not the best open day i've been too but none the less very insightful.

We had to listen to an interview about why MS over every1 else, their business model etc.

Then we did some icebreaker session, then a fun activity with others.

Then we did a networking session with the F/O analysts/associates so ER, WM, IBD, S&T.

I'd say its worth it.
Yh that is what i've heard! seems good tho i do have to say! I am interested to learn how to formally network - i have only done it reallllllllly casually in some economics and bank summer schools i went to.

Btw, what are your A level grades etc if you dont mind me asking? I am predicted A*AAA in maths, further maths, german and economics after getting AAAB at AS (grades respective to subject order!)

Anyone heard back yet?
I applied last year and it took about 3 months for them to get back to me after I emailed them which is the funny part. I got in so far, got shortlisted and in the end they said no. Trying again this year.

I heard they only interviewed about 5% of applicants last year, so the application plays a huge role I am assuming. I said my preferred asset class was equities given my background.

If you get this you will be laughing next year, I am hoping this will give me some more AM experience to help me next year for summer internship applications.

Which firms have you worked at?
No way only 5%. I applied last year and I got through to the interview stage, was in year 13 back then now I'm at uni so hopping I get more of a chance than last year

All, OMGI just moved back their deadline to notify applicants to 16th January, so I am guessing they will notify us next week. Seems like they received a lot of applications...

Don't be so negative. Last year they took about 2 months to get back to me but it wasn't as strict as last year. You never know what could happen.

P.S guys just got an email from them. I'm through to the assessment centre so look out for your emails.
