I thought this might be helpful to all the high school students. Below is a general list (to my knowledge feel free to contribute people) of all the major feeder colleges for the BBs: I tried to order them.. East Coast: Harvard Yale Princeton Wharton Gap MIT Amherst Williams Swarthmore Columbia NYU Dartmouth Penn Cornell Brown JHU CMU Georgetown Midwest: Northwestern Chicago Michigan Gap Illinois Washington University Carleton College West Coast: Stanford Berkeley Caltech Gap UCLA USC Pomona Claremont McKenna Other UCs South: Duke UVA UTexas BSchool Gap UNC Emory Vanderbilt Rice Generally from my knowledge the major feeders are the following: Ivys, MIT, Williams, Amherst, Swarthmore, NYU, Northwestern, Chicago, Duke, Stanford, and Berkeley. Notice that cities will often come into play. If you goto a good school but away from a major city, its harder to get a BB job. I hoped this helped. Please contribute to the list as I'm sure there are some (and possibly many) errors.

"The WSO Investment Banking Interview Course was my main study guide and I landed the exact job I wanted, so obviously it was a great investment. The packet was excellent in helping me understand balance sheets, all that technical stuff. I went through 2 months of training afterwards at [BB bank] so I understand the packet even better (almost 100% now)...ha!"

"I had made it to 2nd and final rounds at a few PE funds, but no offer. The first interview after going through this course I made it to the final rounds and got an offer! I think WSO PE package made the difference - in fact, one of the LBO modeling tests I got in the 2nd round was almost identical to one of the 1 hour LBO ones in the package. Having that modeling practice and the confidence going into the interview is priceless.."
