    Ik but it said that I went thru the initial screening. that could be referring to ensuring i am a first year, am eligible to work in this country and so could also include submitting to the right dept as i can imagine they receive bogus apps.

    Do you use the same cover letter for all firms? Simply replacing the name?

    Loooool no, that would be silly. You change any pertinent info about the firm (awards, deals, achievements, culture, values) but keep your personal section the same.

    Is it a good idea to postpone applying after you have spoken to representatives of the firms at uni events? So that you can include their name in your cover letter?

    Should you include irrelevant work experience on your resume? Football coach at summer camp/personal tutor for kids up to year 10 for instance.

    Including name of representatives on ur CL does not help as much as you think.

    Applying early is more important than name dropping on CLs which most IBs wont even read.

    But if you have contact with some IBs feel free to include their name but in my opinion its not worth delaying your application.

    Morgan Stanley spring weeks up, but the ISG spring week only mentions fixed income sales and trading despite the fact the description page mentions the investment banking division. Can anyone clarify this?

    Its a general multi division SW, inside the application they will ask you what division your 1st preference is.

    Never mind what category it's under, it's a general spring week.

    Many US templates recommends stating your GPA and or SAT results. Should I then include A levels/GCSE?
