I am at a EB and we are doing a ton of assignments that don't even mention our name and we wouldn't get any league table credit for it. Still, the bank couldn't care less. Same for most of the EBs, maybe with exception to LAZ which is an outlier here. My EB's... 2 months 4 days

Right now it is kind of a mess since some banks raised and others didn't, so banks pay 45 or 50 (or a little more for a selected few). Our... 3 months 4 weeks
