    Applied to MS - felt pressured because it seems everyone on here has already!

    How long does it take for the test invite?
    In answer to my own question... approx 90 seconds.

    Hmm..
    DB answered my email.

    They said that they are considering me for an internship in asset management. They ask me to send them a (new) CL, CV and everything else. But I'm quite sceptic. Should I really make that work? I'm in the first semester, and not at a 1 tier uni. Have I got real chances? I think no. What do you think, how would you proceed?

    Oh yeah, forgot to write that they rejected me for the spring into banking program.

    Uni or degree doesnt mean much, if They obviously feel you have the ability and experience - which you do, then you should be considered for the internship. Even if you arent successful at the end of it, you'll get valuable experience of the recruitment process/Assessment Centre etc. What was their reason for rejecting you for Spring week

    Don't know why they rejected me. That's also why I think I'm getting messed aroung. If I wasn't "good enough" for the spring week, how should I be good enough for a full internship?

    Well, I don't really know what to do

    Or you could look at it the other way round, with your experience, do you really need a spring week - which is just basically an intro to IB. They probably presume you dont need it since you've got so much experience at this stage

    I don't want to discuss it/give anything away. But does anyone else think there was a mistake in one of the MS numerical questions?

    Not even sure if we all get the same test so it might be a pointless question, but am almost certain there was a crucial typo in one of their questions.

    Who cares that there was a typo in a question? The tests all have the same framework, but hardly anyone gets the exactly same questions.

    It was a pretty crucial typo that meant the actual answer wasn't listed as an option.

    If you did the rest well (19 out of 20 correct), then **** off it. If you will be rejected for this fault, **** happens, I wouldn't write them, they would laugh about you.

    I have a screenshot, if they reject me then I will let them know.

    But yeah, I'm not losing any sleep over it.
