Hi Everyone, I've spent some time doing extensive research, informational interviews, and coffee chats etc. I wanted to share my list of groups ranked by prestige / exits. If I left a firm off this list, it doesn't mean that it's bad just that I either don't have enough info to make a decision or I'm not familiar with it but others hopefully can provide some color etc. Tier 1A: Goldman TMT, MS M&A, MS Menlo, PJT RSSG Tier 1B: EVR M&A, PJT M&A, EVR RX, Most of MS, Centerview Tier 1C: Moelis, Lazard, Guggenheim TMT, CS Sponsors, JPM M&A, JPM T and MT, JPM HC, MS HC, GS/JPM FIG, etc. Tier 2A

A good friend of mine is deciding on where to go to school as they just got off the waitlist for UMiami and it is their dream school and top choice, but they have gotten into some other schools that may provide better opportunities when it comes to finance (they're interested in IB, consulting, PE). They got into Northeastern, Tulane, Elon and Fordham. My question is, how is UMiami with regards to finance, does it place well? Is there decent recruiting? Does one have a shot at Wall Street if they work hard? Any input is greatly appreciated!

I need WSOs help in ranking the tiers of Pokemon cards. I figured that I would send them in my thank yous for interviews but I don't want to waste high prestige cards on low prestige firms. I was thinking something along the following: *** Japanese Mint 1st Ed Charizard (Auto-offer from ANYWHERE but have to play this card carefully) 1. Charizard 1.5 Blastoise/Venasaur/Alakazam 2. Hitmonchan/Scyther/Zapdos 3. Articuno/Moltres/Kangaskan 4. Machamp/Electabuzz/Pinsir . . 100 Ratatata/Pidgey/Diglet I'll keep the OP edited with rankings as I see fit. In general I'd count 1st ed vs normal ed as bumping up half a grade. So 1st ed Blastoise =~= normal Charizard. Please remember I'm talking about Pokemon CARDS and not the gameboy games.

Hi, I'm an ambitious japanese boy in Tokyo, currently in a third year of top private university in Tokyo. I want get some advises on my career path to be a partner of BBs or Private Equity for NYC or LDN in th future. For my options I have 1) Sales in JPM or CS 2) IBD in BofA, 3) Point72 academy analyst programm. (All in Tokyo office) I love doing sales so in a way, Sales in S&T or Coverage Banker in IBD seems fun, and at the same time Point72 opportunity is really prestige as well. However, my concern is more about 1) Are there any foreigners working in sales position for NYC/LDN offices as

Trying to decide between Capital Group, Wellington, T Rowe, Fidelity (FMR), and BlackRock (FAE). Have offers from 3 of those, finals at 2 (post MBA equity analyst), but trying to get ahead of a difficult (and v fortunate) decision. Especially interested in hearing from folks currently in the space. How would you decide? What DD should I do? Who is best positioned to survive the industry headwinds? Who has the best culture? Resources? Comp / career progression? How important is private partnerships vs. public? Institutional vs. retail focus? Am fairly geography agnostic. Thank you!

Anyone have any context to share on Cowen? They are ranked #17 Vault Banking 50, and are above shops like Citi, Lazard, Barclays, Guggenheim, Jefferies, Stifel. Are these rankings accurate? Has Cowen been growing lately? I know their Healthcare IB group is good, but anything else? What does the long-term picture look like for them? Exit opps for analysts?

What do you guys think of this? These are 'Prestige' rankings, not the meaningless ones like Vault top 50... Almost similar to last year (at least top 10) http://www.vault.com/wps/portal/usa/rankings/indi…
