Hi. I have just graduated from a redbrick university with a 2:1 in Economics. I am travelling between September and May which limits the number of MC grad schemes I can apply to (2009 intake). This is why it's imperative that I impress on the few I have the chance to this summer. I feel I have strong extra-curriculars but I am starting to doubt this is not enough due to my lack of work experience (no internship at bank etc). I haven't even needed to work part time (although I have irrelevant part-time experience) as I make more than enough playing poker online.
Does anyone have any knowledge of graduate schemes, is work experience a pre-requisiste if you are unfortunate enough to graduate from a redbrick and not oxbridge.
In advance, thanks for your replies.
