Laz
GS
MS
other top boutqiues(evercore, etc)
Houlihan

Stability is the key in my opinion. But GS and MS both give you great names.

UBS is scary. I'd go DB first, then... I don't know. Merrill is in a mess right now, but they still carry the best name. It'd be a tough choice between MER and UBS, and Citi would be in last.

wbuffet: You should do what you find more interesting. In this environment, you'll get way more action in a top restructuring shop. But if you're looking for top exit ops, it may pay to have a top BB on your resume. In a BB, you're likely to get on at least one or two big deals, so that would be good, and you'd have their name.

Rothschild is still pretty great.. if you think you'll be happier there, then go with them

If you like Rothschild the most, then go there. Personally, I'd choose MS because it's only a summer, it has the name, and it's in pretty good shape.
