    Oh then yeah, it's tough for anyone to land a job at a BB in NYC. Not impossible, especially at a target, but definitely tough.

    None of you kids are getting in investment banking.

    Regarding this, however, I will say: Speak for yourself buddy haha.

    It's CC. Every ambitious overachiever lurks on the business forum. Our chances of making IB are better than the general public's.

    the real % we need to know is % going into a BB (or top boutique) in NYC as an IB analyst

    All I know is 21% of Ross grads go to BBs (73/350).

    I currently intern at the The Monitor Group, a top 5 consulting firm, and I can tell you one thing: CONNECTIONS, CONNECTIONS, CONNECTIONS. You absolutely HAVE to have good networking skills if you want to do consulting. I go to NYU CAS, and I was chosen over several ivy league students because of my network.

    I assume it's the same for banking.

    Haha you are trying to get into IBanking, have fun failing. I wouldn't even want to get into IBanking even if I got in. For people with no life.

    Dawgie, it seems you have been on a warpath ever since your profession got bashed in the ibanking vs accounting thread. Ease up buddy.

    Whatever thread you are talking about, I don't even recall what was being argued there so obviously that's not the reason. I could careless about which career is better. Honestly, that's all subjective to the individual. Truth is 98% of you aren't getting in.

    Yeah, if we all went to bentley.

    jnpn, whats your work experience, leadership positions, and gpa? The few I knew had 3.95+ GPA's, president of investment clubs, 2-3 relevant internships in finance. Either/or, I'm curious what you have going for you.

    Actually no, banking is of no interest to me. It would also not be that difficult for me either. Not to mention I already gotten a foot into better places (buyside).

    Thats the difference between attending a target and a non-target. If that person went to a target and had even a modicum of social ability, s/he could generate offers. S/he would actually be overqualified for banking...not that that would stop the person for worrying anyhow.

    Being at a target is one thing, but overqualified? What are your credentials? You seem to have it all.
  • jnpnjnpn Registered User Posts: 787 Member
    Dawgie, I think mahras pretty much summed up my answer with this:
    Thats the difference between attending a target and a non-target.

    Mahras, did you go straight to PE?
  • DawgieDawgie Registered User Posts: 1,576 Senior Member
    Dunno I just wanna know all your credentials, since you guys are overqualified for IBanking just from going to a target school.

    I never said I was overqualified.
