Hi, I will be a freshman at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the fall. I have been admitted directly into the College of Business. I have my dreams set on breaking into Investment banking but am nervous that the University of Illinois doesn't have the rep in IB that I need to break in.
So, if I stayed at UIUC and got involved in business organizations, clubs, etc and got a 3.8-3.9 GPA and networked hardcore would I have a good chance for multiple BB and MM interviews and internships in New York or even Chicago?
Or, is my only chance to have a solid fresman year and then try to transfer to somewhere like UMich or Northwestern?
