You should keep it as a single submission for simplicity for the user.
I would have an "Other" as the last item in the drop down list, which
would reveal a field to enter a bank name in. Select a bank name would
hide the field. Then on the server side you check if the "Other" bank
option was selected, then enter the "Other" bank name in your
It keeps it to a single form submission with a single button.
