What are considered some Target schools for MBB at the UG level in the US? All the Ivy leagues + best tech ones? How much of a difference does it make for an experienced hire candidate?

Go to their websites; it’ll have them. Also varies by office to an extent Not that important for experienced hire but your GPA/work experience matter

Yeah for us it’s all Ivy and then the top schools in each region, Midwest - Northwestern, Michigan, WashU, Norte Dame. South - Duke, Vandy, UT. West - UCLA, Berkeley etc

And I think it does make a difference in experience hire recruiting, they recruit at target schools in the first place because target schools have a high concentration of talent. So that same filtering criteria applies to EH as well. But I’ve also seen plenty of EH hires from non-target that have good B4 work experience to help differentiate
