Atrocious 1st semester gpa at ivy what to do now?
Myfor the first semester was 2.0...literally on the verge of failing(due to procrastination and underestimating the difficulty of college classes). Originally, I planned to take the well treaded path to financial services/consulting but due to how low my is now... even if I am able to manage a 3.7 or higher average for the next three semesters(end of sophomore yr) I will probably still only have around 3.4-3.5 which is just the threshold for those career paths/internship for those industries. I don't have any connections so that's not an option for me either. So what you do recommend that I do?
A) choose a different career path that may require grad school/in which myisn't as important until senior yr?
B) take summer session to boost
-my only concern for this is the cost...
*I don't know how being at different college can affect the perception of a lower a since my parents will probably only let me transfer to a college of equal caliber which leaves only (MIT, Stanford, Harvard, Princeton(doesn't accept transfers I think), Yale, Columbia, and non-US colleges like LSE, Oxford, Cambridge) and I don't know what the minimum requirement are for those colleges for transfers
*side question ---are there any
to make up for my horrible mistake. But I'm particularly interested in sustainability, technology, and real-estate development.
Thanks! If you have any better/alternative recommendations for what I could do please let me know!
