    I’ve used deals as emphasis on more general points about a firm for example in cases where I want to highlight the “impactful” nature of some of the work (say financing a huge solar farm in a developing country) or when trying to flag the international scope I talk about a deal that crossed...

    This is also my third time applying to Travers and I felt this when submitting it but given I have no idea what they want from the application your best shot is just to submit and see what the outcome is. If anything, it’ll be a good basis for future cover letters!

    Last year they had issues sending emails to people with gmail accounts so lots of people hadn't heard back. I had to email grad rec and they sent me the rejection email the next day so it might be worth it just to see what grad rec say :)
