Did I make a mistake - Received an offer for S&T

So I received an offer for JPM SA S&T about a week ago and accepted it yesterday. I don't know what desk I will be placed on and won't know until April (I think). However, BAML S&T also invited me to their superday in February, but I didn't think I could go because JPM only gave me 2 weeks to decide. When I emailed alumni from my school at baml letting them know I took JPM they told me they could've sped up the process for me.

I'm wondering if I made a mistake by just blindly accepting JPM without trying to do BAML's superday. I feel like JPM is the better shop, especially for S&T, but it wouldn't have hurt me to attend BAML Superday.

You can still attend the superday if you want. Personally I don't feel you made the wrong choice as JPM is a top notch place to be at.

They're both S&T, BB, and its not even FT. As long as your group is half decent, it doesn't matter.

Even if you had a chance to choose between BAML S&T and JPM S&T, would you have chosen baml S&T?

No probably not I just feel like it doesn't hurt to have the option and I feel bad because we aren't a target and the alumni probably worked hard to get me that spot. But I guess it would've been worse to interview knowing I was gonna take JPM over them.

you're a junior in college, they don't expect you to know all the ins and outs of the interview process.

just let them know you're grateful for all the help and would love to considered for full-time possibilities (cause you never know wtf is going to happen; never burn bridges).

meet up with them in the summer/keep in touch.

You can always stay in touch with them and have them keep you in the loop for FT

You should go to it regardless just to meet the people. You never know how things will be when fulltime starts... JPM could blow up into amillion tiny pieces.
