    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I applied through my University career center. Got invited for a phone interview. First they asked about a project on my resume. Dow, MS stock price and USD/EUR exchange rate. Then they went on to some very difficult brainteasers and an easy option pricing question. My advice for those who interview for this position is to focus on brain teasers in your preparation.
