    go with BAML, the underdog.

    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.

    evercore or moelis LA. You get worked hard in both places but good exit oppo.

    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)?

    I'm relatively indifferent between Moelis and BAML due to what I said above... would never want to personally work at Moelis, but judging by the monkey shit it looks like the Moelis guys on here are none too pleased to be put in the same class as BAML hahaha

    Moelis NY is also relatively new. On the other hand, there are several very solid groups at BAML (M&A, industrials, sponsors)

    Yeah, that's what I was trying to get at. What makes you never want to personally work at Moelis? The type of people you know there / culture / etc?
