    Tongue in cheek internet slang for expecting something (a reaction, situation etc) out of the ordinary.

    I feel maybe they prefer people without any exposure. Not to discredit anyone who has been accepted though.

    My thoughts exactly! One of the people in here (Pres J) has mountains of IB insight programs/work experience programs on his CV but was rejected.

    Definitely! Whoever got it deserves to get it I feel, and I'm guessing they'll be slightly better off going as it's going to be their first bit of exposure to the whole finance world.

    It's pretty random tbh, one of my friends and I both got in and have had pretty decent exposure - personally I can't put a finger on what they were looking for because it seems like a lot of strong apps didn't get in.

    The other programs will hopefully be more consistent
