I had an intern on my project tell me "I heard that you basically have to kill someone to not get an intern offer". I seriously made her life living hell the rest of the project.

The interns are treated like royalty, because we want them to come back. Then the trap is sprung, when it is too late. Classic Big 4 trying to gobble talent before another firm can.

She meant get an offer at the end of her internship, but seriously, the fucking nerve.

There is also some natural attrition within the intern class though. Even if all got offers, not everyone would come back
