Hey guy's this is my first post and I'm looking for some advice on how to get into wall street via Boutique Banks. I currently am a transfer student at a non-target school with a very well respected business program (NIU) and major in Finance/Economics. My overall GPA is low because I did horrible at my previous school (around 2.0) so It currently sit's at about a 3.0. Now I have about a 3.7 for my last 60 hours and will have about a 3.9 gpa at my new school and a 4.0 in my finance/economics major. I think I'll graduate with about a 3.4 overall gpa with possibly a 4.0 in my last 60 hours.
So my question is basically how can I break into a boutique investment bank? Can I get a post graduate internship at one of the local banks or will I be a decent candidate for a job straight out? I have a long list of local banks that I plan on cold calling and trying to network myself into, do you guys think that is my best option?
I'd appreciate any help, I've made mistakes in my past but I will do whatever it takes to make up for them and get to Wall Street and eventually a top MBA.
