    Yeah I know, but I feel pressure to not miss the boat for being early - made that mistake for SWs
    Just pull an all-nighter and do it like a true banker.

    If HR see you submit your application at 4am, you are guaranteed an interview

    This is true.

    What you need to do, to really stand out is submit the online forms at 3-4AM then sit the tests at 8AM. That will show that u are the real MVP.

    Blackstone has an ungodly number of interview rounds and they're very technical.

    UBS could take 12-24 hours, not screening but just their system.Citi do it when they want to progress your application, could be days could be weeks, depends on the role and the queue and how good your application is

    When Citi asks for education level, do you put high school (completed) or university (even if it's not completed). Dumb question but I'm never sure about this
