    If you had a summer internship offer for the rates desk at JP and the rotational s&t program at GS - which would you pick and why?

    GS is GS. Plus a rotation internship will give you the opportunity of more people to impress.

    rotation will be harder. internship at gs is quite cruel. but even if you dont get gs, you ll get interviews at other places easily because of the name.

    GS has the reputation and it will do you good in the long run. As someone already mentioned, if you get converted, the name will let you find a v nice position at other places.

    How long did JMP give you to decide? thanks

    Both are excellent - that's why it's a tough decision!

    I've heard the rotation is harder - do you think the GS name is significantly > JPM?

    Name wise I don't see much difference between GS and JPM personally. But that is personal opinion and I would say go for the one that provides you with better insight/training to secure area where you are most interested in.

    If you are 100% sure you want to go to trading rates then sure go for JPM, otherwise rotation in GS is better to find out roles you may be better suited or find more interesting. Personally I had go for GS for the challenge and rotation opportunity but it depends on your personal preference.

    Both are good. I just think pp in GS must be good looking at their post credit crunch performance. I think they are truely elite and will always be up there. as for JPM, they are good but another crisis might criple them more than GS. So even in long term GS is a sure and safe bet. But congratulations to you. Either one is good.

    Not necessarily true.

    As for the OP: unless you desperately want to do rates GS is the better choice, rotational aspect is better for most people and while they do work you to the bone, you can come out with significantly more experience than many other internships (cant speak for JPM in this case).

    Furthermore conversion ratio's are probably wieghted towards GS (albeit not necessarily for trading roles).

    GS is worth the name - not a huge gap granted, but you can spend more time finding the right desk/people/product/culture.

    Everyone do yourselves a favour and completely ignore the above post, the person has had a heavy night on the sauce.
