Hi Wonderj, Congrats on being admitted to Anderson! So happy to hear of your interest in IB. There were many success stories this recruiting season. I don't know the actual percentage success rate as far as obtaining summer internships, but it was well over half. Historically I think it has been about a third. So I guess that answers your next question. Yes, unfortunately there are IB recruits who do not end up getting internships. However, I know that if you take advantage of all the resources available to you including the Parker Career Center and your IB ACT group (for which I am a coach next year) and really work hard during the recruiting season, you will increase your chances greatly. Worst case, if you are desperate to do banking and do not land a summer internship, you can always go the corp fin route for summer and recruit for banking again full time during your second year. I hope this helps. Looking forward to seeing you in fall! Kelly

Thanks, Rahul and congrats on being accepted to the program! You will enjoy it very much. If you decide to pursue banking there will be myriad resources at your disposal, including future second years like myself. We will do all we can to help your class be successful in recruiting. Oh, and I am very excited to visit Japan. I can't wait! I look forward to meeting you in person next year. Kelly
