    How do you even know that? :confused:

    Well I have 2 ACs so far - had one with BarCap and an upcoming one with ICAP.

    In general, how many ACs/interviews do decent candidates get? I dunno, maybe my assumption of what is a normal amount to receive is unrealistic. I just assumed that if you were decent enough then you'd get to interview stage for most of them.
    You have something called a search history. I looked at your threads started and you talk about doing maths a year early and considering applying to those 4 universities.

    Obviously it depends; how do you define a decent candidate etc? I know people who got 5 or 6 offers last year; i know other good people (economics at a target etc) who got nothing. I would say that if you got to AC for BarCap and your competencies/CV for that were similar to your CL/CV for the other banks, then maybe it isn't a big problem in your writing style or CV layout, and maybe you just weren't good enough (didn't have a wow factor for example)/were unlucky. What's happened has happened though; all you can do is learn from it and add more to your CV in order to get a better set of applications for summer internships as you can always improve. Spring weeks are over-rated in my opinion; you'd be surprised how many people i met at ACs and interviews who hadn't done spring weeks. Just get your CL and CV checked for writing style, layout etc (a lot of it is how you say things that looks good; something crap can be made to look good) and add some more to your CV etc.

    Just my thoughts anyway.

    Sure, thanks.

    Well, I don't know, I'm assuming that if BarCap thought I was okay for an AC then that there's nothing really wrong with my application and that after that it's just down to luck/a "wow" factor as you put it.

    Or you might have written weak cover letters, and BarCap was just competency questions whereas every other bank (minus UBS) is a cover letter. Maybe worth looking at too.

    Either way, good luck with the BarCap AC.

    Don't be afraid - I haven't made it into the next stage at no bank. But I've got two internships safe, one at Deutsche and one at a MM M&A Boutique.

    There are always ways to get some cool internships.

    No, both are in germany, and both are paid. The M&A one is even two and a half times better paid than the internship at DB lol. got the m&a one through a cold email. then a phone interview with 3 bankers, some days later the offer.
