Ok here's the deal. I'm in a dire situation and in some serious need of actionable advice. I'm a graduate from a top public (one of the schools above) with a subpar GPA. What are my options going forward to break into IBD? I know I've already graduated with a terrible GPA and am seeking constructive feedback for options to break in. I know it will be an arduous journey to get there, but am committed to break in eventually with time. What are my alternatives at this point??

1 top internship + decent network would solve your problem.

Not necessarily true, many boutiques are not very structured and may be able to provide you with an internship even though you have already graduated. As others have said, network your ass off.

The other option would be a top MSF program as someone has stated. Shoot for MIT, Claremont McKenna, etc.

Hope this helps
