The two guys on the Tracker have masters degree .. Does princeton accept recent grads (those with only a bachelor degree ) ?
My info is in the tracker already. I received my invite on January 4th, by e-mail. Princeton mentioned they will be interviewing ~130 candidates or so, if that helps. I'm straight out of undergrad, so don't lose hope! Good luck!

I got an interview too. Any advice on what to wear? business formal/business casual?
Congrats! Given that it's Princeton, I would definitely go with business formal. Are you interviewing in-person or on Skype? Either way, I would still go with business formal.

Hi all..

I had my interview today with Wendell Collins via Skype. Here is a brief transcript for everyone who has interviews scheduled later this month. I was told that the decisions should be out by the 20th of Febrauary.

1. Walk me through your academic and professional experiences. (Career Progression question)
2. Why are you looking for a Masters Degree at this point in your career. (I have three years of sell-side experience)
3. Why did you take up your current role ? How is it different from the previous roles in terms of culture of the firm, the scope of your role, responsibilities, etc.
4. What are your long-term and short-term career goals ? What type of financial firms are you looking at? (Banks, Hedge Funds, Asset Managers,etc) What type of role would you be most interested in ? (Trading, Risk Management, Quant Investing/Strategies)
5. Tell me about the contributions you made to the student community at your undergraduate institution. (Extra-curricular activities question)
6. What is your view on the financial markets in your home country? Financial markets globally ? (Macro question)
7. Why are you looking at Princeton? (I spoke about the courses I like, the professors I would like to do projects under, the networking opportunities Princeton offers because of its proximity to NYC and its rich alumni base, Princeton's career services cell and of course the unmatched brand value)
8. Do you have any questions for me.

I would like to wish everyone good luck for their interviews.

Cheers,
