you have a better chance of findin wmds in the usa than gettin into these firms.
wow, pretty harsh. didn't your mother ever tell you if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing?
i think you can include citadel on that list. i don't know that there are too many hedge funds doing internships these days. my suggestion would be to take a shot at the banks with good trading desks (GS, Leh, etc). another option would be to take a look at the large trading shops and even some utility off shoots (cargill, louis-dreyfus).
if youre going to have any luck in the hf world finding an internship its going to have to be at the big guys, which i think you have a pretty good list. oh, and maybe d.e. shaw as well. and going to a top school helps alot in getting your foot in the door.
Top 100 - Good luck!
I know that figures for 2007 are not released yet but when so could you please also post that file or the link.
