    Anyone have any idea of the number of applications that are made for given summer internship position vs. the number that make assessment centres? I am wondering for BB and smaller but still big ones such as Nomura or BNP.

    A few hundred applications?? 20 to the AC?? Have no idea haha.

    you are severely underestimating this crap.
    here are the #s for a regional US BB (EMEA) office of which i'm sure of:
    2500 apps for 5 AC spots for 1 final spot.
    same odds at another for the same regional office but for 2 spots instead.
    here are the #s for the SW of another US bb @london
    5000 apps for 150 first rounds and 30 spots in the end.

    Unless you qualify as some sort of diversity hire (B/F/LGBT) you're gonna need a spotless resume and then some luck with itw'er castings to get a spot some place.

    Whilst i firmly believe in diversity - I know plenty of people who lie about their sexual orientation on their applications. I am curious if this is still considered / weighted in decision making.

    like I said I have plenty of colleagues who lie. When you are out there to differentiate yourself and get an interview in one of the most competitive industries.... you do just about anything.

    P.S. Not just the guys!!!

    Nah because on the application form that section gets filtered off. I think it's more if you have an organisation that helps people from your background into the industry by placing influential recommendations and giving you networking/training with professionals.
