Currently working in Wealth Management, had a low GPA during undergrad from top 25 University.

Taking CFA L1, hoping to break into ER within the next couple of years. Would a low GPA hinder my chances?

Advice is appreciated, thanks!

I believe a low GPA will hinder your chances in any situation, but wouldn't fully limit you from getting it.
