Offer Selection: Lazard M&A/RX NY vs. GS Financing vs. MS IBD

Forgot to include an offer from Citi investment banking, consider that too. Leaning MS/GS, was not a fan of Lazard culture and don't want to be at Citi as much as the first two. Not too considered about exits

If you're thinking PE, should be between MS and Lazard. From what I understand, your experience at both will be pretty group-dependent; upside from an exit opps perspective is high at each (m&a/mc/gpug at MS, RX/HC at Lazard). Can't go wrong with either, might have a better experience at MS if not in a top group - plus the best 1-2 analysts in almost all of the MS groups tend to do really well.
