I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs in October 2011.
I received this interview at a national conference. The process involved going to several information sessions and seminars and speaking with both recruiters and current employees. The first half of the interview was pretty standard, they asked about my education and my experience, why I was interested in the company, and why I thought I was a good fit for the position. For the second half of the interview, however, they turned my resume over and wrote out a risk problem and ask me to solve it. It was not extraordinarily challenging, but I do advise you to brush up on relevant material before going into an interview with this company.

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs in January 2010.
I did not have a good experience with the in person interview. I show up at GS and they keep me waiting at the door for half an hour and then they tell me my interview is rescheduled! I go back to the hotel and after one hour they call me and ask how come I'm not there! I really expected much more from GS. On the other hand, the people seemed very smart and asked very interesting and challenging questions.
- There was a computational geometry question that I didn't even understand since it seemed to have nothing to do with my background or the position. Answer Question
