Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at D. E. Shaw & Co. - Investment Firm in July 2013.

Interview Details

I appeared for the interview as a part of the campus recruitment process. The pre-placement presentation was not great. There was a written test consisting of Technical and Apti MCQs. I would rate the toughness of the questions a 7/10. They shortlisted about 20 people from which they eliminated another 10 on the basis of the resume. Out of the 10, 2 students requested not to be considered for selection as they were not impressed by the presentation.
