Has the RX boat sailed?
Hi. Hope everyone is having a great day so far.
To give some context, I'm a rising sophomore at a non/semi-target on the west coast. Over the past couple of months, I've become interested in the world of restructuring. This mix of law, psychology, and finance is one that greatly appeals to me and I've been taking the necessary steps to familiarize myself with it. (Moyer, PACER, cap tables, etc.)
While there are factors that I can definitely control (networking, technicals, following cases), I realize that there are aspects of recruitment that are somewhat out of my control. I'm aware that recruitment is extremely competitive as a majority of SA positions are usually held by those attending select schools (eg. Wharton). As someone attending a non/semi-target, I already face an uphill battle in the recruiting process.
To add to my troubles, I haven't been able to secure anything for next summer. While I am still trying to find positions relating to/Credit; there's not much out there for a nondiversity.
While I do understand that there is time left, part of me wonders what could be done if I re-routed back into the M&A space. Is it too late for me to succeed in RX recruitment or should I continue to push on.
TLDR: Haven't secured anything for the summer of 2023. Is RX 2024 recruitment out of the picture?
Really appreciate you guys taking time out to read this. :)
