so I go to a top 50 school, I major in political science with a minor in economics (I'm thinking about adding finance as a minor). My cumulative GPA is 3.55, and my major GPA is 3.9. I'm also the president of a major political club, I've written for my school's newspaper for the last two years, I've made dean's list on numerous occasions, am in my major's honor society, and I currently am interning for a management consulting boutique in Manhattan, a new NY satellite office of a European consultancy. In the past, I've worked on political campaigns, including a presidential campaign in 2008. I love politics, but I love Wall Street almost as much, but I'm not as inclined to go to law school because unless I go to the very top, its hard to get a good job. I'm going to be a senior this year.
I want to get, preferably into investment banking, or management consulting. I know a decent amount about the stock market, and in my econ minor, I've almost finished 200 level courses. How can I get into either of these fields as a career? I'd be fine with an IB boutique, tho with MC, I'd rather at a bulge bracket. Also, what would be the true difference if I start i-banking at a boutique? Do they pay for biz school?
