What to do if you do not get any BB offers?

Prospect in IB - PubFin

I am a third-year student at a non-target school. I used some connections to get into interviews and managed to get 3 superday invites to JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, and Blackstone but did not receive any offers. What are some good suggestions for a student like me looking to get a good internship in NYC at a reputable firm?

I'd say EBs are not bad either!

Dude it's over. "Go BB or go home." Looks like you're going home.

If you spell as well on pitchdecks as you do here you aren't getting a return offer. Better learn some spelling if you don't want to go home.

Try for all of the other banks that are in NYC. If you can't get into any of those, go to the really small shops, and even go local if you have to. Experience at a small firm is better than no experience. Even if you do end up working at a smaller firm for a couple of years, you can leverage the experience that you get there to help you get a job at a BB later on.

Congrats on the offer.

A career is a decades long proposition. Where you start is not the end all be all (coming from someone who started at a top 3 BB).
