    Between Lazard, Rothschild and Morgan Stanley of course Morgan Stanley offers the best career prospects. I mean they were number 1 in global M&A in 2009. Plus MS in Spain has good deal flow, if you dont like it, you can always relocate a year down the road. Unfortunately, we are living in a world where the BRAND matters much more than anything. It is what it is and you gotta play this-always go for the brand name (GS-MS-JPM-The rest). Its like admission to Uni. Why do people apply to Oxbridge-LSE-Warwick-UCL - BRAND and nothing more (particularly those who want to IB). I can bet you that teaching quality/student experience at Bristol/Durham is as good as LSE/UCL, etc, but still people would choose LSE,etc. Brand Matters my friend.
    you live in an imaginary world.

    Lazard. No brainer.

    If you survive this internship and then still want to do M&A, you are in one of the best positions I can think of... but be aware of the unique culture at Lazard, it is very much "white collar" if you know what I mean...

    how did you get intern at new york if you are in the uk, u must have some sik contacts or sum oxford supergrad, ????
How are you feeling about your exams?
