Assuming you eventually make into strong groups at each place, which would you all pick to work at and why?

"Strong groups at each place" is vague, and in this case I think it matters. I think the ranking would go JPM M&A / SLF / Sponsors, Lazard, JPM Coverage.

Is this assuming NYC exclusively?
Personally, I would choose Lazard and that's simply because I prefer the boutique, highly-specialized team approach.

I get what you're saying, but wouldn't your sell day not occur until after you'd accepted your offer?

I really disagree with this sentiment. There is a lot of utility in knowing which groups are preferable, even without having offers in hand, as it allows students to best allocate their networking time to the better opportunities.

Focus on the offer first and consider opportunities at all the big banks. If you don't have an offer, unless you have a 4.0 from Wharton, you are not in a position to be choosey.
