You will need to purchase a flight upon acceptance to this program to confirm your spot in the program. We can provide suggested flights and websites to find the lowest prices but you will need to book the flight on your own. After application close on the night of December 4, you will be notified within 24 hours if you have been accepted into the program. If you are accepted you will have until December 9 at 5:00pm to purchase a flight to confirm your spot.
Companies you will be required to visit upon acceptance and confirmation of your spot in NYC are JP Morgan, Evercore, Greenhill, and RBC Capital Markets. If you attend the program you will have to attend all four of these visits. Optional/fun office tours including Bloomberg, Google, and T3 may be scheduled the day after the main visits but are not mandatory.
The application closes December 4, 2013, at 11:59pm. No late applications will be considered. There are information sessions to learn more about the program on November 25 from 5-6pm in CBA 4.326, and on December 2 from 5-6pm, also in CBA 4.326. All McCombs students are welcome to apply and have equal chance of acceptance. Decisions will be emailed out within 24 hours of application close. Acceptance to the program is based primarily on responses to the application questions and major/classification. In addition, resumes will be sent to companies prior to the visit.
The complete cost of the trip is briefly broken down here, and as you can see there are three major expenses to consider. Two of the costs are flights and spending money which you will take care of yourself, meaning you can find the best price/bring as much money as you think you need. The other cost is paid through a McCombs online payment system for food lodging and transportation. For more information about costs feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org for a detailed breakdown of all the expenses.
1) Flight Cost -- $350-$400 depending on airline/flight
2) Program Cost (Food, lodging, transportation) -- about $350*: This includes 4 nights at the Marriott in Times Square (regular price $400-$800 per night), Group Dinner on January 1, Texas-Exes Alumni Networking Dinner on Jan 2 at John's Pizzeria, and unlimited subway rides for the duration of the trip.
*If you do not have health insurance, you may be required to purchase insurance through McCombs for the trip, at a cost not to exceed $10/day
3) Spending Money -- $200-$300*(suggested)
Total Cost: Around $950-$1000
