it also depends on your personal preference, personality. i went to b-school on the east coast, and wasn't really impressed w/ most of the finance/ibanking/sales brain trust (its not rocket science to put together pitch books). the exception to that would be the hardcore math/physics phd quant jocks who speak in differential equations and work in trading or similar positions.
