I’m applying to a program that sends students to various banks and PE firms. The entire recruitment process is highly competitive and I’m seeking advice on how to prepare/approach the interviews. I am starting the Breaking into Wall Street Guides, but am iffy on articulating technical questions in a concise way. Any advice (also regarding behaviorals and overall how to impress the admissions committee)?

Any books/self help materials for someone who is constantly worrying (and waste a lot of unnecessary time)? E.g. No matter if i pass or fail an interview, there is always something to worry about.

Now that I signed the offer and is pending background checks, my anxiety is off the roof as it itches closer to my starting date.

How much weight do they put into the phone screen and is it normal to wonder how they went?
