    Interview

    Was a behavioral first round interview with an analyst at the firm. Asked the classic investment banking questions, and asked about major banking legislation. Nothing too crazy. Make sure to stay on top of financial news, and research a bit about the company before hand. Advice that will probably help with any interview.
