I have a return offer from's but Brown, Gibbons, Lang and , and & Phelps are all recruiting for full-time positions at my school.
If I'm mainly looking into the non-PE exit opps that investment banking offers (like corp dev), would it still make sense to join some type of bank/valuation firm like the three above? I would think that it is generally pretty hard to lateral into a much better bank. With Citi, I would have the brand name of the company and a lot of experience with the different rotations offered.
I would think that the other three IB firms have non-existent exit opps and since I plan on getting an MBA as well, Citi'swould probably group me with all the Corp Fin people compared to being grouped with the IB people if I go with one of the other three.
