    its open every year, they just open it at a stupid time, like 4 weeks before the deadline specified. You need serious, serious extra currics to get a sniff, 3 of the 40 people who got on it last year were last years warwick finance exec, with like 10 spring weeks and 3 summer internship conversions minimum between them. facing second years is daunting haha.
    bloody hell, that doesn't sound fun to compete against!

    Absolutely loads. Think 60-80 per division or something

    Is it bad if I apply at the end of October? Is it like too late? My uni just started 3 days ago as well so trying to get as much stuff done before I apply.

    I know people who applied half way through November and were successful to the likes of Deutsche and a few others.

    Anyone else feeling REALLY behind on SW stuff?

    I have my CV fully sorted after taking it to a SW CV panel at uni but I'm yet to start any cover letters because I just don't know enough about what I need to talk about and the layout etc.
    Theres loads of SW help at uni coming up but I feel like its all too late because everyone on here seems to have sent off loads of applications already. Ive spoken to a couple of second years who did spring weeks and they all said to wait until late october/early november before applying to get all the help you can from uni but I just feel like its way too late

    It's not too late - you've got ages. Most places haven't even started summer recruitment yet or have only just started. Barclays only started summer recruitment last week.

    I've already had the Barclays presentation evening at my university and all the people currently on the team said that they didn't send their applications off until early November at the earliest, some even sending them off just at the start of December! So you've got plenty of time left, try not to panic about applications, just make sure you don't rush them and include everything you can to give you the best chance of getting an offer.
