    I guess I shouldn´t be worried about even getting two offers, but just to mention that scenario...

    With banks like Goldman recruiting not on a rolling basis, what do you do when you get an offer now? Accept it and if you should be so lucky to get an offer from Goldman in January decline the offer from the other bank you already accepted?

    Is RBC spring insight only a single day? And no fast-track?
    http://campus.rbccm.com/en/home/our-...k/?tab=details

    And could anyone elaborate if the test providers that Rothchild, UBS and Citi use are TalentQ, SHL and TalentQ?

    Why don't banks automatically email you if you passed the tests or not?

    I'm applying as well, doing statistics and economics. Not quite sure yet whether I'm set on banking or not. Is everyone here set on the banking path?

    Hey guys, with banks like Morgan Stanley who just ask for a cover letter, how do you lay things out? And are we talking like 3-400 words?
    Also, should we make it formal and address it to their office, or just "Dear Recruitment..."

    I was thinking something along the lines of:

    Why "X" Division
    Why Morgan Stanley
    Why My Skills/Experience will be good for finance

    That's fine, just make sure to include very brief intro and outro paragraphs as well.

    You could swap "Why MS" with "Skills/experience" as it's the more important section so the reader should read it before they start losing interest...
