    Just wondering if things like programming and learning a language are good for EC? also will doing an microsoft excel course benefit me?
    language - not in ibd

    excel course won't add much value to your cv but may benefit your personal competence dependent on how it's taught. equally if you're not a complete dimwit everything you'll learn in the desk

    Is mid September too late to apply? I'm starting a very nice student job in the end of this month and I want to put it on my CV.

    My plan is to apply to GS/MS/JPM/BAML/Lazard

    It's a bit early (some don't even open til October), and I would suggest applying everywhere if I'm honest mate.. Just applying to the top 5 banks is a recipe for disaster.

    I would apply for more, but banks like Nomura, RBS all the big 4's etc. seems to have very short SW's and traveling to England for just a few days seems silly. I want to apply for some of the more lengthy SW's.

    I think I have a decent CV and a good chance of landing one of the more sought out SW's!
    All of them are 3-5 days bar GS (which is 2 weeks) and RBC/Mac/Cannacord (a day) dude. I would go for all of them because the odds are terrible, wouldn't worry about travel etc SWs are fully reimbursed and most often you'll get put in a hotel for a week.
