EDIT: So I was offered the position as well as an equities S&T position at MS in NY. I've heard that the BofAML rates desk is quite good. What would you all personally pick? I know Morgan Stanley has more "prestige", but I've also heard that based on league tables and recent performance, BofAML is really competing with the top BBs. Looking for insight here. Thanks!

I don't think you need to be getting that advanced for SA interviews. Options questions seem unlikely.

Have a viewpoint on where rates are going and why and make sure you know where the major bonds (e.g. 10yr treasury) are.

Thanks. Any other suggestions?

What would be good "weaknesses" to say if asked what the bank's weaknesses are? I got this question with Goldman and had no idea what to say except that some people may view them in a fraudulent mindset after the $550 million settlement.

BAML's final round interviews are almost entirely fit-based; you don't need to be getting this technical.
