USC GIS - Bridgewater, Pershing Square, Oaktree, KKR

Don't know how we pulled this off at a semi-target but USC is hosting an investor series on the 24th with senior investors from Bridgewater, Pershing Square, Oaktree, Man, KKR, and more. We're gonna be covering the US economy, PE, Public Equities, and Credit investing. 

Couldn't leave the WSO community hanging so here's the invite:

Yeah, definitely Cali target but definitely not yet for NYC. These firms typically never come to campus and it's pretty insane that they're all coming now ig

Just for more context in case anybody would like more details for USC pipelines...

SF TMT connection is strong, all the way from MM like Piper to RBC, Centerview, Evercore Menlo, etc.

Barclays and CS actively recruit, but it's about 1 per year

Moelis LA is different. Analyst class is ~8-9 with half the kids from Wharton, and the rest fighting for spots. Most years USC gets 1 in but some years none. They do put on an info session though and there are a few EDs and VPs who are Trojans as well

USC is filled with birdbrains but they for sure take care of their own. Same shit as NYU, SMU, etc. I suppose that is what you're paying for anyway.

I'm wondering if the app will auto-reject you if you say "NO" to both being a USC student and GIS member? Or is that just for data collection purposes?

Wanted to circle back and ask if the Zoom Link will be emailed shortly before the event? Or should I go back and look at the flyers? I didn't see anything on them or the form when I signed up.
