    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sullivan & Cromwell.

    Interview

    I applied through my university's career website. I was contacted for a phone interview about a week or so later. The interview wasn't too hard, and they were very nice. They said they would let me know in 1-2 weeks if there would be an in person interview, but they never got back to me.
