College advice for AMHF
Hi guys, I am currently an upcoming High school senior and am interested in managing money. I currently invest 5000 dollars of my own money that i have saved. I have a 3.3 GPA currently (Yes i know it is low. Bad freshman and sophomore year) at a competitive private high school and am taking only a few AP courses. I am Hoping to get a 2k on my SAT but I may not be able to break out of the low 1900 range based on my studying and practice tests that I have been doing. My essay is really original and I know that it will be probably the biggest standout on my college application. I can't tell you the topic because it will reveal too much but just understand that it will be a very strong point. I have great extracurriculars (leader and founder of investment club and I am currently doing a summer internship with a fund manager in town. I have learned a lot from it. My recommendations are going to come from the business teacher at my school who taught me economics, marketing, and hotel business class and from my Math teacher. I will also be getting a recommendation from a close friend of ours who is the Senior vice President at a BB firm. (think WFC, JPM)
1.What do you think the best schools I should apply to are. I know I won't get in to all of them. What do you think the chances of schools like Bentley,Babson, IUBloomington, and places like that accepting me. I don't really know much about any other schools that seem reasonable. Anyone here have any experience at these schools?
2. I also would like some advice on what the best major for me would be when breaking into the field. I really like Economics but I keep hearing about how math/computer/engineer sciency majors are becoming more sought after. Also I hear Finance is a good major as well.
Thanks for your help and sorry for the length. I have been reading a few WSO forum posts lately. Hope you guys can help.
If you have any questions feel free to ask. Would like to hear your opinions.
