Wso demographic

Are most wso people state school students/grads? LACS? Ivys? I get the impression from these threads that most people on here are in the first category just want to take a quick poll for reference.

What's the point of being cagey about your school (I.e west coast target) if you're gonna post on anonymous anyway lmfao

Stanford - I dont know anyone who uses this site tho

I assure you no one is assuming that. Kids that go to the top anything make it known on this forum. For example if they're at GS/MS they'll says GS/MS if they're at JPM they'll say GS/MS/JPM. You didn't say "I go to a target school like HYPS" and by west coast target school I'm gonna assume it's not Stanford.

No. And I don't think it's easier to get into banking from HYPW than Dartmouth or UMich or Stern or Georgetown. Banking is all about knowing your fundamentals and building your networks early-on, a lot of people from a lot of different schools break into top banks. There are plenty of Whartonites and HYPs with 3.8+ GPAs that send their resumes and don't even get first-rounds. And there are plenty of kids from non-targets with MBB office. 

I will say, though, that for the elite boutiques like Evercore, Lazard, PJT, and Moelis, Wharton definitely has a special place in recruiters' hearts. You'll also have access to more hard finance opportunities like private equity, hedge funds, or restructuring for summer analyst and full-time positions in Wharton as well. Wharton summer analysts also tend to do better just cause they have more training than econ of BBA majors.
