Military Vets with MBAs Recruited HeavilyBeing from Canada, I don't have the same perspective on Military culture as in America, but I really respect a lot of the attitudes towards those who have given to a cause much greater than the themselves or the next bonus number. Wars will always be horrific, and should be avoided at all costs,... 1 year 10 months
How relevant is CFA Level 1 for a finance...I took it during school along with a bunch of other classmates and I would recommend doing L1 at this time if you are very sure about the CFA designation being a part of your future career.

I was what you would call the sub 3.5, "well rounded" candidate with lots of internship experience and unique ECs, while the other candidate had a rock star GPA... 2 years 1 week
Potential Offers.. Low GPA right nowI doubt it... Don't think they are going to recheck your transcripts and if they have already given you and offer I think it would take more than that (i.e. just don't get arrested) to have it rescinded 2 years 6 months
I don't meet the GPA RequirementDefinitely go and network at the info session. I was able to create a relationship with a senior guy at one info session, we kept in touch, and ultimately it helped me get an interview. My GPA was around what yours is so I feel I was somewhat in the same boat. I later ended up getting the summer... 2 years 8 months
