    Finally did UBS tests earlier today. How long after doing them can you expect a rejection email? I'm not entirely confident on how I did, especially on some of the last few questions of the logical which I did not get at all. Also is there any other aspect to the application now? Thanks

    Hi guys,

    I had my telephone interview with Morgan Stanley on the 20th of December (nearly a month ago), and I still haven't heard back. I think I did relatively average, not too amazing, but not too bad. Do you think I should send them an e-mail asking about the status of my application?

    From what I've realised, MS is handing out replies currently, and I am still waiting for one..

    If you don't get a rejection in the next 3/4 days I think it's safe to say you passed the tests

    I'm pretty sure they don't interview, so yeah that's all there is to it.

    Just logged into UBS (standard Sunday evening check) and believe HR status has changed from "Application Complete" to "Application Review." Does this mean anything whatsoever?

    I think it means you passed the tests.

    Mine's been on Application review for a month now, and it changed from complete to review the 3 (working) days after I took the tests.

    Yeah I actually really liked the Horizons program, but I didn't want to risk it (chickened out, plus the essay looked tricky ). I might still try and apply for something similar this summer though.

    Lol no, if you pass the tests your app just gets screened, not more, not less. If your background is ****ty, you'll get a rejection sooner or later.

    What are you talking about?

    I was asked competency and couple of technical questions as well as brain teasers. All the generic stuff.
