    Yes. You'll easily tell if the wrong locations appear on the drop-down menu in the application.

    Hi guys, do you think it is worth applying for a bank where i did not get fast-tracked after the sw last year (consider it was a place where 60% of the people got fast-tracked). Also, does jpm do tests ? they didn't use to do them for sw level but read somewhere that they do for summer.

    is it useful to name drop junior analysts in an application? I know him pretty well, but not sure how much influence he will have as an analyst.

    Yes, do it. The analysts are going to be the ones sifting cvs anyway.
