I just wanted to get your opinion on this. I'm a college sophomore and have two offers - one from a hedge fund (AUM - 1.5B) and a boutique i-bank. The hedge fund one is paid, but very little (small stipend at end). The i-bank one guarantees that I will be able to work on some live deals during the summer.
Which one would be better for recruiting season next year? I imagine the investment bank one will be superior, but will the unpaid aspect of it be worse? Any thoughts would be useful.
EDIT: Wanted to mention that I'm pretty committed to doing IB next year, and that I'm at an HPW school so I should have access to recruiting next year.
