    Wealth Management ---> IB/MC/TAS

    I have a straight commerce degree and nowhere near hd wam lol. But you right, there's a lot of comlaw. Just saying you don't need comlaw or super high honour grades Just the right type of ECs would do tbh

    Wealth Management ---> IB/MC/TAS

    But ib/tas/mc would also take people with straight commerce degrees (no need for co-op). It's really not that hard as people think to get interviews. Why do an extra degree?

    Do employers care about what uni you go to and your wam?

    Are you sure employers will actually care about the difficulty in marking between unsw and usyd? Did they tell you this?

    Do employers care about what uni you go to and your wam?

    Also to answer your question, most employers don't care about which uni you go to. But it is such a coincidence that every AC i've been to have been composed of at least 60-70% from unsw.

    I reckon if you have a solid standardised cover letter the "scattergun" approach should work for all similar firms without needing to change anything. It worked for me during internship season last year even for IB apps - i.e. the only thing I changed in regards to the content of cover letters...

    Summer Vacation Internship's 2017/2018

    tldr - Overall it was a great recruiting process, as I expected and I would not have done anything different in in the interview or in preparation for it given the circumstance. Correspondence was adequate, group case study and standard individual interview. The hardest bit was getting the...
