Undergad GPA and Jobs
I just finished my freshman year at NYU Stern and I was wondering how much freshman year grades could affect job opportunities.
I know that grades in the following years hold more importance, but I did not do well in two key intro business courses this semester (Micro & Stats) and this has lowered my GPA significantly. If I do well in higher level topics of these courses would recruiters ever fault me for my low intro-class grades?
I know there is much more to getting jobs outside of GPA, but it concerns me when I hear about the GPA cutoffs and floors in really competitive industries like investment banking and trading. If anyone could offer any advice/guidance, I'd really appreciate it.
