Deciding where to sign a full-time IB offer--choosing between an EB and a top BB (GS / MS). My end-goal is MF PE. I go to a non-target.
I SA'd at the EB--which has a a mediocre track-record of sending analysts to MFs--and ended the summer on great terms and would be walking into full-time with great relationships with senior bankers who would likely be willing to make calls for me.
Compare that to the BB, which has a superior brand name, but at which I have no existing relationships. I'd be relying solely on the brand name (which would be offset somewhat by my non-target degree) for PE recruiting.
Which would you guys pick?
