    go with BAML, the underdog.

    You can rise through the ranks faster and earn 'big boy' money sooner.

    Congrats on your offers.

    I would say Evercore = Citi M&A > Moelis = BAML

    - Evercore all-around has solid placement, placement I know off the top of my head includes HIG, Apax, Warburg, and quite a few VC's / HF's. Certain groups place better than others, although I'm sure you know this. What industry vertical are you shooting for?
    - Haven't heard about crazy placement from Citi M&A in a while but they consistently place people into top shops. I think some of my buddies mentioned Warburg, First Reserve, and PEP this year. Back in the 06-07 heyday they were sending about half their analysts to places like Apollo / KKR / Blackstone
    - BAML is a toss-up obviously
    - Moelis sucks, I personally would never want to work there (exit ops not really stellar... definitely worse than Evercore, although Moelis LA > all)

    I'm guessing you interned in Citi M&A but out of that group, I would probably take Evercore.

    You would really rather work in a random group at BAML over Moelis? Why do you think Moelis NY sucks (except for having worse exit opps than Moelis LA)?
