    Okay. Hmm, worth an email at some point even if it doesn't change anything. Just to get some more definite news of whether that's it or what.

    Yup, accepting it! So excited! Especially as my interviewer kept questioning why a Law student would want to do IB!

    'Grats man, I'll see you there.
    Haha I got exactly the same question about my subject! I'm feeling quite lucky because my GS app wasn't one of my strongest. Haven't heard from anywhere else though lol but can finally stop worrying.

    Just to share some info that could be useful for applicants in the future:

    Applied on 07/01/12 - 2 hours before the deadline.

    Interview on 02/02/12 - Felt like a casual chat, most of it was talking through my CV, added a few of the typical comp questions.

    Offer on 08/02/2012

    Can you be a bit more specific? Who did you call/about what and what did they contact you with?

    Congratulations to all GS offers, not having had a call back myself after interview I suspect I won't receive an offer. I'd be interested in how you found your interviews. Competency-based? Technical? I found mine to be far more technical than I anticipated: we discussed why a company should issue equity to raise capital rather than debt, different equity/debt-ratios in a company and its implications, and other very intricate, at least for me, questions on corporate financing. Not a single question on my CV, one competency: "tell me about a time you failed". What was your experience?

    Once again, congrats on your offers!

    I completely agree, mine was WAY more technical than I'd expected! I don't think I got asked one competency question at all. It was all very much current affairs, logic and technical things. However, don't lose hope yet! When I got my offer yesterday it sounded as though I was one of the earlier ones to hear so you might still be in luck!

    Mine is still on 'application recieved' which must be even worse..
    When did you apply? Does anyone think that the date of application makes a big difference? I am quite annoyed about GS...
    The whole process is quite frustrating really. Would have appreciated the chance for an interview!

    Why would I lie about having an interview? I applied for IBD, even got my interviewers card after the interview. It wasn't the same interviewer as announced in the e-mail though, if that makes any difference.

    My securities application is still under review and i applied 1 week or so before the deadline. I know people that have had interviews even though they applied hours before the deadline. Hopefully I get a chance to comminuate my qualities via an interview, and not just rejected because i go to a non target.....

    I dont think so, I applied in October and got an interview, similarly I know people who applied a few hours before the deadline and got an interview also.

    Same...well a bit less than a week before. Yes...precisely. Not quite sure what differentiates applicants so much. What counts as a non target?
