    How should I prioritise bulge-bracket banks for applying ? Especially for summer internship or do I just apply them all?

    You should keep applying until you get an offer, apply in order of when they open. I think last year Lazard was first followed by Barclays.

    Thanks bro!

    Literally this:

    You want to maintain a level of professionalism, but also go in with an action plan. If you’re going to approach someone, ask yourself why: 1. What do you hope to find out? 2. Are they willing to give their time/are they particularly busy? 3. Can you answer any question you may have with a 30 second Google search?

    Make a LinkedIn, if you haven't already. You want to have an elevator pitch for when you go in, a quick 20-30 second introduction in whereby you highlight your name, university, degree subject and a very brief reason for introducing yourself. Let the conversation flow naturally and build on their responses. I wouldn't recommend going in with specific pre-planned questions, unless there's very specific things you want to find out.

    Leave any professionals you come in contact with a reason to give good feedback on you. Once the conversation is wrapping up, ensure you thank them for their time. Ask for a business card or email so you can follow up with any further questions. I wouldn't say there's any specific rules to networks, just don't do anything stupid and have fun while you do it, it's another chance to learn about specific divisions and the actualities of working for that firm from its employees perspective.

    Some (elite boutiques) are better than BBs. Some industry teams outside BB banks are better than BB teams. Location also plays a factor.

    Just continue applying until you land an offer - and should you land offers at both a BB and a boutique, that's when you start comparing.
