    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.
