I'm new to the forums, and I am trying to decide between buy-side and sell-side straight out of undergrad. I am fairly certain that I do not want to go into IB, so at this point, sell-side is pretty much a no for me. I'm looking for others opinion on this? I come from a non-target school, so getting into IB Is somewhat unrealistic. However, I have connected with numerous PM's and analyst at buy-side firms and I am fairly certain that I have a pretty good shot at locking down an internship at one of them.
Do you guys really think buy-side? What are the salary differentials between buy and sell?
