I'm currently a 3rd year law student at a T50. I pulled a 3.7 in ugrad from an ivy, but majored in Spanish and Political Science. Right now, I'm pulling a 3.2 in . The past couple summers, I have worked for USDOJ in competitive offices such as the USAO & SEC.
I had never considered a career in finance before, but during my 2nd year of, I took a couple of securities and financial law courses. Since then, I have focused my degree on business and financial law, and have taken courses on accounting as well. I have no experience working for a bank or other private financial institution.
So, my question is, what are my chances of landing some sort of middle office job at a bank and, is it possible to work my way up to eitheror IB? Both of them interest me. Alternatively, would it be a good idea to work for a couple of years and then apply to business school and then try to break in from there?? (note: I've had a free ride on schooling so far, so please don't address the monetary cost of business school).
Any insight would be appreciated! I'm just wondering if this is crazy to pursue or not...
