    That's as personalised as it gets

    What? It's a genuine question. These programs are super competitive obviously, but I haven't see any numbers thrown around and wondered if there are any released.
    DB is between 1-2% sucess rate. Assume they get the same amount if applications as most BBs and only take 20-25 then work from there to work out figures for other places, I guess.

    Do you know how likely it is to be offered Summer internship at GS as a second-year student at 4-year degree?
    I sent the application on 23rd October and haven't get any reply yet! The application status is 'process of reviewing your application'.

    If you've told them you're graduating in 2017 you'll be automatically sifted out

    Hm, probably you are right.
    But on their websites, there is: 'usually undertaken during the second or penultimate year of study'. So I thought the 'second' applies for those on 4-year degree and 'penultimate' to those on 3-year degree... :/

    Hi guys,

    Had my BAML phone interview earlier, I thought it went reasonably well but it seemed quite short, is 20 minutes about the right length for these interviews? It said it was going to be 45 minutes on the email I was sent.

    Cheers

    Most people do 3 year courses so that's when they refer to 'second year', usually firms put penultimate for clarification I'm 2nd year on a 4 year course which is why I've applied for spring weeks this year

    Don't give up hope yet! It's unlikely but not impossible - a lot of luck involved. I'm also a second year on a four year course, applied to MS summer this year. Got through two rounds of interviews though haven't heard back since so imagine I've been rejected or put on hold for AC. Still, the opportunity was there.

    Yeah! I have applied for summer internship at MS as well, and even got to AC but then I was rejected :/. There is really few companies offering summer internships for second years on 4year course.

    Sorry to hear that, huge respect for MS considering us all the same. Schroders take students from all years for summer. It's asset management but would still be great experience. There are a few other banks that look at younger students, and a few wildcards if you're desperate for a summer programme like case study competitions.

    I think RBC Capital Markets didn't specify what year you had to be in, did you submit an application for that?

    I see on the website that interships are for penultimate-year students... so, not sure tbh. But I plan to apply there for the Spring programme.
