    Also interested in the JPM 10-spring internship in London (IBD). They had it this year. Don't know whether to apply FT or hold out for the spring application if it happens to appear
    Same here! Doubt it will open later though. They have a spring internship for Milan listed, but not for London. Let me know if you find any more info

    Investing includes all the groups within SSG, it is from what I can recollect extremely difficult to get into (much like MBD their private equity platform) so unless you're truly enamored and interested by working in a sort of pseudo hedge fund that mostly does debt, convertibles etc investing then I wouldn't bother.

    It's also completely different to what you'd do in S&T.

    Goldman application: when entering grade (out of 30 in my case) I can only choose whole numbers, while my GPA is decimal. Logic says that >= .5 the GPA is rounded up, but I'm not 100% sure... does anyone know more?

    If you are happy with your app you could prep for next stages... tests, interviews (phone, video and in person), how you could network, etc etc

    Did you choose AM or PWM? And do you know why PWM isn't part of GSAM? And if there are other significant differences? (Sorry for the firing of questions)

    Corporate Banking is more about running the company - you run it by allocating and managing the finance of it. IB is less personal - you raise capital and help it in M&As
    They're very similar though

    Lending vs capital raising and m&a advisory, that's pretty much it. Corporate banking is business and commercial banking but to corporate clients, so product offerings are lines of credit, debt revolvers etc

    Investor services is prime brokerage, back office services (trade clearance), financing for large trades, managing collateral, etc.. It's pretty much an outsourced operations and financing arm for institutional investors.
