    Lazard have numerical and verbal tests, they only send them if you pass the first screening
    From year above, I've heard Lazard has very high thresholds for tests

    Could be, but they do reject people even after passing tests, once they look at the whole app together including results

    Yeah I reckon so, but I guess beef it up as much as you can tbh. Do you know if DB send tests after the app + if you can put a reference on there?

    I'm hoping to get into DB's Special Situations Group SSG (Real Estate) there own private equity fund for next summer. Does anyone know if apps open for that or if it come under the banner of Corporate Finance and then you can get into through group placement? Or am I going to have to get in through a non standard procedure? I'm also interested to see if they open up apps for their Real Estate Finance Division- not consumer lending but speculative development, mezzanine, portfolio acquisitions sponsors ect?

    Well, I mean it is a nobel prize winning model, so I assumed it was a bit advanced to explain for an S&T internship lol. But if im okay just saying its a model to price European options then i guess its cool.
    I should imagine that you could be asked a question like this from a tough interviewer, but your answer would unlikely be expected to be any more than what it does (i.e. price options) and a more detailed explanation of what an option actually is.

    Also, just so you know: something being "nobel prize winning" is absolutely no grounds on which to say that it is beyond the scope of an explanation for someone our age. I'm doing physics and we cover plenty of things that were nobel prize-worthy at the time.

    Just because something requires immense intelligence to discover does not by any means suggest that it requires much intelligence to explain/use.
