    I have already contacted HR but want to see if anyone on here knows:

    I applied for JP last year (spring week). When I go to apply for a summer internship I have a form with two questions, one asking me what my predicted grade is and another question, and below those questions is a submit button. Will that button submit my application from last year (since it's saved on the system) or will it take me to the next stage of the application? There is nowhere I can find for me to change my details/CV upload etc.

    I think you're referring to the initial requirement page. If that's the case, when you click submit, it directs you to the rest of the application. Hope that helps!

    MS for IBD/GCM. Does anyone know why MS has only opened for this division?

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

    Doubt it, mine was picked out by a VP when I got my SA position.

    Interesting, CS MD I spoke to said analysts/associates do the screening.

    Maybe the recruiting task force is more broad than I thought...

    The firm I'm at now has someone(VP and above) who screens all CVs from a particular school only. So someone screens all Cambridge, another guy all LSE etc. That's what a director told me but not sure if it's the same throughout the whole firm

    This is true of me also.

    For my SA, apparently my CV was passed round the whole team, from Analysts to the three MDs. And one Analyst in particular liked me a lot - and so did the VP. The VP ended up insisting he was the one interviewing me.

    What do you mean - I am very confused now and where did you get this info ?

    Cause I just did not send the application but it is still there for me under "my applications ?

    So do you think there is no point in sending it anymore ?

    Must vary by bank but for mine, it was because the VP was the staffer so he'd be setting the over-arching workload which would then be explained in more detail by the associate(s) to myself/the analysts and therefore wanted to know what interns he'd be working with.

    Do people think hedge funds favour IB guys or traders / can both lead to this?
    From what I've read IB possibly ?

    Depends entirely on the hedge fund:

    IBD, maybe ER/AM > L/S Equity, merger arb/event driven, value/deep value, growth, distressed debt etc

    S&T (desk dependent) > commods, global macro, credit, quant/systemic, stat arb, relative value etc
