    Just wanted to say that my GS interview for IBD was very odd. To all of you guys with technicals, must have had some harsh-ass interviewers. I didn't get any current affairs questions, technicals, nothing. Every question was something to do with working in a team or how being global affects how you work in a team.

    Gl to anyone who has interviews tomorrow, and hopefully we start hearing about first round results soon.

    Could you please compare the conversion rate at MS vs. CS ? Many thanks!
    About 10% at MS, higher at CS, but not 100% sure. I assume you mean to the summer internship.

    I agree with you, it's much more important to do your SW somewhere that you enjoy and get on well with people, instead of just looking at conversion rates!

    Where did you find your fav/worst to be.

    Is HSBC any good? Currently I'm only holding BAML.

    I think they both operate an AC in the weeks/months after the SW. You pass the AC, you get the summer internship.

    AC is identical to the final AC for the standard summer intern application route.

    Referring to your earlier question, pick the bank that you enjoy working at and where you get on best with the employees!

    I loved MS! Everyone was really friendly, but they still pushed you harder than everywhere else too.

    No worst one stands out.

    Hey buddy, Morgan Stanley take a long time to get back to you so don't worry. They are collecting all the people for the assessment center I presume.

    They have given final round interviews already (it's interviews this year). Some people got final round interview invite about 3 days after their first round. It's been over a month for me :lol:

    I'm just going by what was said at a GS event; that students of unrelated degrees will not be expected to know all of that. Thanks for correcting me though - I guess I've more prepping to do.
    would you say that Statistics is an unrelated degree?
