MF's usually have associate classes of 8-12 on average (maybe more or less depending on the firm) and what counts as a MF usually depends on some arbitrary cutoff point. UBS should provide some MF interviews at the least.

Top UBS groups are LevFin/sponsors and industrials, with LevFin being the rainmaker. Have heard good things about M&A and TMT as well.

I would actually take William Blair. They are viewed as an ultra-selective MM bank and has a fantastic reputation in the marketplace. I've also seen really extremely good MM PE exit opps from there.

Think about location as well. If you want NY then UBS (assuming offer is in NYC). If you want CHI, then WB.

If you are going to UBS (or any BB for that matter) on the off chance that you are going get into MF, then that is a terrible move. UBS guys that place into good funds are usually from strong target schools. Most UBS guys have a hard time and place into even decent funds. This is a generalization and there are few UBS guys that place well.

If you are looking purely at exit opps, UBS will give you the most options as 1) you'll be working in the large-cap deal space and doing so will give you a shot at a broader range of funds (including MF's if you're gung-ho on those) 2) you'll be in NYC, and there are more funds to network with in NY. That being said, you can still land MM PE gigs out of the MM banks you have offers at.

And like another poster said, if you can go to NY, go there because you're handicapping yourself going to other cities out of undergraduate unless for whatever reason you want to be there long-term. NY gives you the most optionality. It is much hard to move from, for example, Chicago to NY then vice versa.

Even so, UBS bumblefuck would still easily beat out the other firms.
