Theyre pretty brutal make sure its actually something you want to do. 90-100 hour workweeks on a prorated analyst salary boils down to like 12$ an hour or something stupid like that.
Well for i-banking I don't go to a Tier 1 target school. But our undergrad business school is ranked in the top 5 or 10 I think but it's too late for me to apply there.
100 hours is really stressful. But how different is the money. Do any biglaw employees have starting salaries higher than 200k?
If you're not at an Ivy, preferably Harvard, Princeton, or Wharton, then there is no point in talking about i-banking. Post-recession, post-Dodd Frank, there is no room in i-banking for people outside the tippiest-top schools. Even there, banks are demanding great to excellent grades, which wasn't the case back in the day.
