Advice on BB offer

Hello everyone,

I recently received an offer to join a BB as a summer analyst. I haven't formally accepted the offer yet as another recruitment process with another bank is going on and I want to wait as long as I can to see where the second process will end up going in the next days. 

How long do you think I should wait before signing the offer with the first BB?

Is there a possibility the first BB will withdraw the offer before the expiry date?

In the event the second bank offers me the position can I still reject the first BB's offer even if I have already signed it?

I was thinking of signing the contract three days before the expiry date as I don't think at that point I would receive another offer from any other place.

Thank you very much to all!

Fast and Fiduciary, what's your opinion? Comment below:

If you got a BB offer why would you wait for something else? unless it's another BB or a better group you want. 
They put expiry dates for a reason so they're not going to rescind the offer before then but you do need to sign it by then or ask for an extension which I wouldn't do. You're plan sounds good - if you dont get the other offer by the time you need to sign the first offer then i would just go with the first one.
