    As I said, no point discussing this. I actually have a good friend from KCL going to Laz - he enjoyed his spring there.

    The point is that you're giving wrong advice. See how important this is when TSR ranks well on google?

    F*ck me, you're not a bright one.

    You struggled with further maths, so I can understand why you can't reason.

    I presented facts, you couldn't disprove them, so you cowered back to your little hole.

    Unlike you, I talk about what I've experienced.

    You're just a poly-quality student fantasizing on TSR.
    Again mate, your ilk making new accounts on here doesn't faze me anymore. I couldn't give two craps about someone getting butthurt over the word 'semi-target' nor someone who has the ****ing audacity to start insulting me when I haven't done so to them.

    So first, **** you. And second, go live in your fantasy land and harass some other TSR schmuck because I am not having this.

    it's a semi-target bro

    proportionately sends in a lot less people than the targets previously aforementiond. to put it in context out of about ~50-55 IBD interns in my summer class, 0 were from kings, wheras the targets at the top had atleast 2-3+ from each (with a cocnsiderable weighting on oxbridge)

    the point is not to say it's a bad school, as i've done several spring weeks and kings had atleast 1-2 people from the various banks that i've been too, it's just not as strong in sending kids into banking than some other schools.
    Another pseudo-intellectual.

    No university "sends" people in.

    The only meaningful measure of a target university are fast track programs and general sponsorship for FO and high finance in general.

    Think about this for a bit, then try to come up with a coherent response.


    All you've proved to me is that KCL students probably tend to be less competent than others at "target" universities.

    Once again, doesn't prove KCL is not a target. Maybe just that it's students tend to be stupid. Which would be the result of lax entry requirements.

    this is the differentiating factor between targets and semi-targets, so to speak - these are unnoficial terms to define just that

    and it's not probable. it's historically (and consistently to that matter) statistically defined

    Will do boss, but first item on the agenda is to get royally smashed.

    Imo, don't know why you made a new account just for this. You a bit bored in the first week of uni?*

    If that's what you mean by semi-target, then sure.

    But the implication of "semi-target" is different.

    The reason why I qualified what I said with "probably" is that I don't have any data, and I don't enjoy talking crap.

    Informally however, I would agree.

    I've lurked on TSR for a while, but never made an account.

    I actually came here to ask a question about IB.

    As far as I know, kcl is a semi target, so you have a chance.

    Oxbridge tends to be the biggest target, followed by LSE, Imperial, UCL and Warwick.

    It is a semi-target, I don't think you quite get what that means: not all banks target it, but a fair amount DO and it simply sends *on the whole* less people into FO roles versus the targets. Targets are pretty firmly in place: Oxford, Cambridge, LSE, UCL, Imperial and Warwick.

    I take it you've been on a spring week? You should thus know the representation of various unis.

    And FYI, just because *GS* goes on campus does not automatically boost the university into being a target. GS also loves to visit Loughborough and Leeds - are they now targets too?

    P.S. entry requirements, the international academic community mean bugger all for finance. Is it really necessary to go on this huge rant about all of that just to be a cheerleader for a uni?

    Loughborough is definitely a target nowadays
