Non-target and older student.
How bad of a non-target is this school http://www.hanover.edu/ ?
I've been reading a little on the forums about targets/non targets ect but is there a huge difference in the quality of non-targets?
A little history, I started my own business at 17 my first semester of college I started making some serious money and dropped out and withdrew from a lot of classes. I'm 21 now and I recently sold my business and moved. I now have a management/marketing job in the same industry making 45k per year with a 15k benefit package. I'm enrolled in a community college retaking classes to boost my GPA. So far I have a 4.0 while working 50 hour weeks. I have a decent chunk of cash in the bank, and while looking at ways to invest it I became interested in finance. 100 hours a week doesn't scare me as much as others, I've done it before with about 50% of the work being manual labor.
I'm not shooting for GS, just a decent job at a small firm or PNC bank in Louisville (very close to me). I would love to get into IU's Kelly but even when I fix my gpa I will have a crappy transcript. Hanover would be very convenient, and I would have no problem getting in.
So my questions are
- How does Hanover rate as a school in the I-banking community? Or does it at all?
- Does full time work experience in management and sales/marketing before your undergrad help or hurt you? Will my age hurt? (21 and freshmen)
Feel free to proverbially rip me apart just throw in some scraps of good info while your doing it.
