Received a Point72 Academy case study and I don’t really see the point in even following through with it. Probably 500 applicants, 250 case studies went out 100 onsite interviews, 50 super days, 25 data manipulation, 10 spots.

Yeah, you’re right...why try at anything? Especially when you’re in the top 50%. Nothing to be excited or feel good about considering it’s somewhere exclusive like Point72.

Know someone who went from big 4 to an academy job at point 72. Put in a ton of effort to case study and was told that was the reason he got the offer. His case study stood out against other applicants. Give it your all never know what will happen

I feel like I have a solid background, just not the research/analytical/modeling skills required

Why let that stop you? Are you prepping right now? If you want it, go for it. I’m sure there’s a reason you received a case study, you impressed them to get to the next round. Keep pushing through and if you try your hardest and don’t get it, who cares, move on. If you get through to the next round, keep at it. Don’t doubt yourself now!

Yah not worth tbh

Just submitted it. Kinda in the same boat as you cause I haven’t worked on financial modeling etc

Same thoughts. I feel a lot of people got the case study and feels there is only like 10 spots so kinda disappointing

How are you estimating these numbers. I think you’re overvaluing the number of cases that went out — there’s no way they’re grading 250 cases, that’s a huge lift. Plus, there were already two cuts prior to case (resume and hirevue).

Yah good point, not sure if this would be just nyc or overall (purely conjecture on my numbers
