3.3 GPA at UC Berkeley, f-ed up soph year due to very serious/personal reason
So, I am about to be a senior, preparing for IB FT recruit in the Fall.
Doing everything I can to network, alum, senior personel, cold-calling headhunters, HR
Will spread my net wide to boutiques, MM and BB.
Have no previous IB experience but well over 1.5 years of wealth management experience with Smithe Barney and BAML..
I triple major in Economics, Linguistics and International studies with a ~3.3 total GPA and 3.4 Econ GPA
due to my end of freshmen year incident (very personal/traumatic), I developed pretty serious post traumatic stress syndrome and received over a year of psychiatric service to overcome my personal issues. This disrupted my ability to focus and study, resulting in some B- and Cs in my sophomore year.......
My junior year grades were As and B+s, so there's an obvious dip in performance in my sophomore year.
If interviewers ask, should I talk about my personal issue, or is it best to leave it out? Should I mention it even if they don't ask, since It is a very reasonable dip in performance, considering what happened to me.
