    I thought it is about time to open a thread for all the people applying for the spring week internships in 2012.
    I've taken the list of banks that are offering Spring weeks from last year's thread.

    Banks that offer spring weeks:

    Goldman Sachs: IBD, Securities
    JP Morgan: Spring Week, Industry Impressions (Autumn)
    Citigroup
    Morgan Stanley
    Deutsche Bank
    BNP Paribas
    Credit Suisse
    RBS: Divisional Spring Weeks
    UBS
    BarCap
    Bank of America ML
    Nomura
    HSBC

    These internships are usually for students graduating in 2014.

    You can never start thinking about it too early.

    That is the LSE I know lulz.

    Packed with spotty teenagers obsessed with investment banking that decided to go for a mickey mouse subject because the applicant/place ratio was slightly lower.

    If you say so
    You must have a relatively low self-esteem.

    OP ... I suggest concentrate on your A levels and meeting the offer. SW deadlines are in JAN2012 for most of them and applying for them takes 3-4 days at most.

    I don't see what's so funny about being prepared.

    If some of you 2011 applicants prepared earlier then you might have got that GS/JPM/ DB spring week instead of no offers at all.

    There's no need to hi-jack this thread.

    Agreed.

    Since sixth form, when I do sit-ups I say "Morgan" when I inspire and "Stanley" when I expire.

    I watched American Psyho twice, I red liar poker, I pretend hard that I love game theory even though I am crap at it and barely see what's going on in those nxn matrices.

    I have downloaded the bloomberg app on my blackberry.

    That's what got me my spring weeks. And guess what: 100% of my friends who didn't get an offer didn't prepare like I did.

    Thanks for the list! I can see where the people that are saying it's too early are coming from, but the applications start in October/November so it's not like you get ages with the uni career staff to work things out.
    What/where are you going to read next year?

    I've not no, but i've got "work experience" at JP Morgan and RBS lined up for summer though. Did you?

    Also I realised I have no idea what to put on a CV for the Spring weeks, surely "I played wing for the 1st XV at school" doesn't cut it anymore!

    I'm a post-IB applicant and am currently doing an internship at Julius Baer Bank in Zurich. As my offer is unconditional I am fortunate enough not to worry about meeting it.

    Well, I will be switching to a different course at registration. (Before people now say it's not possible to switch, IT IS and that is not something I made up but something the departmental tutor at the LSE has assured me)
    Thus I will either be studying Philosophy and Economics or Accounting and Finance. The reason why I want to change my course is that my internship started after I sent off my application and it just made me realize how fascinating the financial industry is)
    The only thing I have for extracurriculars is rowing and golf. I really don't know what else to put or if that is even relevant for them.
