Selecting a PE fund

I am in a generalist m&a group and honestly I am just looking for the biggest fund I can get into. How do I figure out which funds to go after?

In all seriousness, that's not a good way to be thinking about this. The HH is going to be asking you for specifics, and why lie when you really just figure out what industry/size/geography interests you.

forward_lateral, what's your opinion? Comment below:

I have no clue. I don't know who I am, what I'm interested in, or what the hell I want to do with my life. I am very good at grinding with my head down and absolutely hate socializing. I hate people very much but I am good at faking it for 10-15 minute interactions so I am decent at interviewing. If it were up to me, I would live alone in Montana. But I'm not sure how happy I would be if I actually did that. I'm a good looking dude but haven't really gone after any girls at all since college. My only talent is work ethic. I am not smart. And the only reason I have a good work ethic is cause I could care less about my social life

That's a cop out answer ... you're too lazy to just actually think about yourself and your preferences. If you truly don't care, then a quick google search will get you the top MF
