This is extremely helpful, thanks so much! Surprised to see how few banks are remaining / how many banks have already finished.

I think you might be a good fit for Tobin & Co. It's a boutique out of Charlotte. The owner is Justine Tobin, former Goldman Guru, she boasts a 90% placement into BB's for her summer analysts. I would highly recommend looking into this, it's too great of an opportunity to pass up.

Re: Boston Banks, I think Shea is doing some first rounds this week (I've heard they have a spring cycle and fall cycle, so they're far from done). Under the MM part, is "Ares" referring to Ares Management or Aeris Partners?
