Are there hedge funds - or other buy side firms for that matter - that recruit almost solely, if not solely, from ONE school? Ex: X firm only takes in Wharton grads. Y firm only recruits from MIT. And so on.

Basically, are there real Pearson Specters out in the world of high finance? If so, which firms and what are their respective schools?
