Can you interview at Lazard MM and Lazard? Just got an MM first round and wondering what that could mean for my Lazard app.

Yeah they did the SDs already or are in the process with doing it

Walk me through a DCF, rank the valuation methods from highest to lowest (don't forget LBO as the lowest--think I got dinged for initially not including it), what is an LBO and why is it the lowest (that was the follow-up), and I think that was it in my memory.

When did you have the first round? I had SD already for SF.

The PCA group focuses on two main things: fundraising (i.e. raising money for PE funds) and secondaries (selling of PE investments to another PE firm, pretty much PE M&A). Group is easily one of the top private capital groups on the street (along w/ Evercore as main competitor) and they usually have 3 analysts per class. Pretty good culture but work can be somewhat mundane at times (lots of contact logs and organizing emails) and exits are in general "meh" given the M&A/RX groups will recruit better.

FWIW the work tends to be somewhat easier (not much modeling here, mostly PPT) and you will get paid roughly the same (maybe $10-20k of a smaller bonus) as the M&A analysts, but your exits won't be as good and hours will probably be just as long. And to answer the inevitable question people ask: no, working directly with PE firms does not mean you will be able to exit to PE that easily.

I know one friend from my school (non-target) that has this week. However, he didn't apply on their website yet and he had a relative that knew a MD that got him into the process, so it might be under the table. The Lazard recruiting session said the bulk of their recruiting wouldn't begin until applications closed, so I'm going to say no. Maybe diversity and targets have started, but most of non-core/non-diversity is pending would be my best guess.

You never know – my friend had an SD with Lazard LA last year and they gave him a verbal offer, telling him they'll only give him the actual offer a month later. So, maybe that's why the delay is here.

Just got the Boston offer along with another kid from my target. Said that there's only two non-diversity spots for SA this year so they're done now

Has anyone heard back from NYC M&A/Restructuring? The status of my application is not updating, so I'm assuming I'm out of the process? I talked to the lead recruiter a month and a half ago and she said that I could also reapply for the Fall if I didn't get an offer to interview now. I'd appreciate any advice/information!

I haven't heard back either, but just assumed I got rejected. Seems like some people had gotten interviews already. Last year they recruited in fall but not sure if it's the case this time
