    Is QMUL a target university for banking, finance etc ? Would an ECON graduate from QMUL be more competitive than a Management graduate from LSE or UCL ?
    QMUL is a complete non target unfortunately, LSE and UCL are both one of the 6 target schools or core schools as some banks call them.

    And Subject does not matter as much as uni, for IBD its completely irrelevant, for S&T they slightly prefer more numerate degrees but the name of uni is still far more important than subject.

    But that being said I don't want you to be demotivated its still completely possible to get in from QMUL or any non target.

    I've literally had to delete a 26 post long conversation with a poster on here who was adamant about not using google to find out what a spring week is and then too lazy to click to the second page for the list of firms I put up...

    Yeah its ridiculous tbh, the worst thing is that a lot of the times they probably would have saved more time and effort going on google and just getting an answer in 30 seconds instead of going on tsr and asking someone and then awaiting a response.

    I'm writing my resume atm and have a problem fitting everything on one page. Is it recommended to omit valuable information? Everything I want to include is relevant imo..? For instance, CEO of young enterprise company (although we didn't do particularly great), and being a football coach during summer camps, groups of 10-20 kiddos

    Quality > quantity. Your CV is a sales document that has to be succinct, show you in your best light and highlight your achievements. It's not a laundry list of every relevant thing you've done in life, so yes, omitting some information is fine.
