    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Morgan Stanley in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through both my school system and online. It took about six weeks to hear back and then I was contacted for a phone interview. The interview questions were fairly straightforward (resume questions, brainteasers, and a few firm specific questions). I heard back about two days later and was invited to super day the next week. I had four interviews, but the vibe of each was completely different. One interviewer focused purely on why I was interested in finance, one entirely on fit, and two on more technical aspects of the position.
