# of bankers at each firm? Anyone have any idea...Some people actually look at league table rankings and think that's the be-all end-all ranking of how strong each investment bank is. How they can think Bank of America is better than Lazard, Centerview, Greenhill, Evercore, Blackstone, etc. and not really think twice about it is beyond my... 6 5 years 2 months
My first SA offer! WSO ROCKSI just got my first SA offer, and I'm extremely happy to have broken in! It was tough - only got 4 first round interviews and screwed up my first two, but I was able to learn from my mistakes and got my story down before my interview. Just wanted to thank everyone on this board for their good... 21 5 years 2 months
2-3 years of consulting --> Top b-school --...I asked about going from IBD --> Bschool --> consulting, but what about the other way around?

When did you submit your SA applications? Seems...The vast majority of the IBD apps on my school's career services website weren't due until around now (1/24 - 2/1 were the due dates of around 70% of them).

JPM, Barclays, Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse -...My school's careers website that the firms use to recruit only lists New York offices for the banks in the title while other banks have options to choose offices in other locations.

Do most analysts go to or desire to go to PE...Or do most bankers try to stay through to become associates, VP's, and beyond? I was wondering, among the people who leave an IB firm before VP, what are some of the percentages you'd estimate to be the causes of their departure? Like 30% to b-school, 30% to PE, 10% just get fired (and must... 3 5 years 3 months
Western (LA, SF) offices - earlier recruiting...So I interviewed with an investment bank's LA office already (turned in the app early January) even though they have another app for their NY office that hasn't even been due yet. Is it common for LA and SF offices to go through the recruiting process earlier than NY offices, or is it just this... 1 5 years 3 months
