    DB have near 100% conversion.. they're practiclly a no brainer.

    The conversions change yearly, they're just average from what I've managed to dig out. Really depends on economic cycle and the banks budget for the year relative to the quality of the filtered candidates, I'd imagine.
    That really isn't true about DB. From experience it's very division specific.

    Also remember that just having any summer offer can be used as leverage. Especially if you have more than one.
    So, I guess it's not just about conversion so that you get an offer with *that* bank but so you have an offer for that bank and can expediate the process with others, next year

    does it matter what bank you have an offer from to use as leverage? eg say you have an exploding summer offer from jpm, ofc you can use that, but if you contact gs ms and jpm and say you have an exploding summer offer from idk, rbs, would it still be fine?

    They're big banks. Employ a lot of people. A lot of the 'better' candidates go off to the American power hungry banks so they aim to retain their SW recruits, especially if they show promise.

    Fairly solid numbers. If that's the case, it should improve this cycle. Not booking on a GS offer nonetheless, I must say.

    Hmmm. Depends

    I guess rbs wouldn't cut it
    But a friend called with a DB offer and GS told him they couldn't schedule anything whereas MS did for me.

    I'd say the BBs/known banks are in group and of you've got an offer from one of the group the others listen

    GS, JP, MS, BAML (quickly improving, really up there, at the moment)
    Then
    DB, Citi, CS,

    Barcs, UBS (could perhaps hold sway with the above group depending on the rest of the candidates portfolio)

    When talking about IBD many of the Elite boutiques will hold a lot of sway, too
