    Should. Only on rare ocassions do they not call back. Because obviously it is only natural not to have your phone implanted in your brain, so they'll understand why you didn't pick up.

    UBS and CS so far. Gonna apply to DB (all their schemes), the HSBC first year internship and BOAML now that I have two references for my CV. Can't think of any more deadlines.

    Nah, don't be sorry, I kinda saw it coming as I haven't done any form of Maths for well over a year, thought they would look at my personal skills as I am quite good at selling events and products and can argue up a storm, politics student ya see. It was also a last minute decision to apply as I wanted to do some political internships but none of them are expenses paid, whereas IB spring weeks are expenses paid and my family can't afford for me to go to London for a week. Need to polish up on my maths m'thinks!
    lol WHEN did u apply to ubs?? and good luck with the rest

    Just received an email from DB. I should not be "alarmed" that I have not received any contact from them as they are dealing with summer internship applications. At least no rejection. Yet.
