What to Do With My GPA?
Hi - First time posting. I'm just wondering how much of an impediment myis going to be for the future trying to land a job in finance. Interested in sales and / hedge fund / .
I have a 3.2in Mathematical Economics from an Ivy - Brown / Columbia / Dartmouth and I am also an athlete in a preppy sport (tennis,squash,lacrosse). Many of my friends taking easier course loads in concentrations like general economics, history, political science have much higher 's (3.6 - 3.9). Will my be an impediment? Should I have chosen an easier concentration and gotten over a 3.5 ? Will I be dinged straight away because I've taken a more challenging course load? I'm the first to admit that I could have studied more and worked harder but given my time commitments in my sport as well as having a social life, I think I have done ok. I haven't applied to any summer , but there is the possibility that I may have something at a in sales and in London for the summer through a contact. If I don't get this am I screwed (I'm a junior). I have thought about grad school at LSE in finance but will my be too low for entry there?
Will my only option be to take a middling type job and try and get into a good MBA program down the line?
