I applied to the positions below on Linkedin

I already know from this single sentence that you either are a current analyst at some low tier firm that has no idea what lateral recruiting entails, or are someone who is delusional that they are going to break into IB with no experience.

Applying to JPM & Moelis but also UBS and CS asking for ranking? Such a wide gap that signals you have no idea what the difference between these firms are. Maybe get an offer and then rank what offers you get, or maybe network and see what you would like? Realistically sounds like your not gonna get an offer either way.

Alright man, now you are editing the post to flat-out lie? Not only do you not have an offer, and are not yet involved in the process, but you have the audacity to come on this thread and try to waste other people's time to explain something that doesn't need explaining. There are plenty of other threads talking about each group. If you have questions about a specific group as you are going through a process, fine. but this is ridiculous
