    Instead of being bitter over the fact you were only able to get one interview for a FO SW (albeit Goldman), you should utilise the fact that somebody who has had more success than you in gaining interviews and offers is going out of their way to help you and other people. He/she doesn't have to use their time doing this so instead of trying to put them down, show some decency.

    Hi, I was asked to do an AMA thread on here about me receiving offers from a non-target university.

    Grades: GCSEs were not good and neither were my a levels hence why I ended up at a non-target.

    ECs: I did not want grades to be the reason why I didn't land offers so I went to multiple networking and insight days with various investment banks and worked extremely hard on my applications. I also did volunteer work during university and joined various societies.

    In the end I managed to receive multiple interviews and landed 3 SW offers in IBD and a first year summer internship offer in commercial and corporate banking.

    So yeah, glad I made the first step, and hopefully can continue the hard work to receive what really matters, a penultimate year summer internship.

    If anyone has any questions feel free to ask!
    May i ask which bank the summer internship is for? I didn't know any banks offered summer internships for first year students, or is this like a one off special case sort of thing that you got through networking?

    I was more so alluding to the fact he wants to humble brag yet at the same time not dox himself. and did you really just use bitter in the same sentence as goldman sachs lol

    in that case really anyone doing an ama is (in some perspective) bragging about something
