    Well, i have an uncommon university career, i am from Italy,milan, got a bachelor degree in philosophy with the higest grade but while i was studying philosophy i have found interest in finance and so i decided to get a bachelor in economics and financial markets at the same university(catholic university of Milan). I regret of not having gone to Bocconi, but here i am: i should finish in february with high grade(107\110). I can paste my cv...when you look at the mail and discover "we regret blabla, wish u the best for blablabla" is so depressing.
    What about you? Any tips?
    Sure, could you send CV through private message.

    By finish in february do you mean you are graduating in 2015?

    I haven't actually submitted my application for DB so honestly wouldn't know.

    I am sorry to hear that. I just finished the test and had to guess on 4-5 questions. Unfortunately, I just have to bear with it until they send me that automatic rejection email.

    Hi all,

    This is a print screen of my DB spring week application page, it has 'interview process' in bold, does this mean I have passed the initial stages of the numerical test and competency questions? I am yet to receive any sort of email since taking the test.

    I have the same. Pretty sure it just means that we have submitted our applications and haven't (as far as I know) failed the test that everyone receives within 5 days of submission.

    I had the same question all day, having just completed my online test. However, I assume that the rejection will come on Monday, given that it is the weekend?

    I've applied to Pwc, MS, GS, Credit Suisse, RBS, DB, JP, Rothschild, Citi, BAML, Nomura, ICAP, UBS and am currently finishing off RBC Capital Markets, BNP and HSBC. I kinda regret applying this early as my CV is a little old now and most HR haven't even starting looking at spring applications yet

    I went to the Different Dimensions DB event as well as a case study and actually found DB to be the most impressive bank so far

    Hi, you seemed to have a lot of experience with applications. I was wondering when did you finish your DB test?
