So I'm a sophomore at a semi-target, economics major (Will change to finance next fall), involved in the school's investing club, social chair for a school org and have participated in a sort-of stock pitch competition. I'm looking for a summer and if possible spring internship this upcoming semester to prepare for Junior SA recruiting. I don't have any finance work experience.
I'm just wondering, should I keep applying and cold-emailing boutiques right now that I have a 3.5 and not a lot of technical skills, or wait two months and apply with a 4.0? My grades are really great right now and because I just transferred my GPA actually resets so I can actually get a 4, and if not at least pretty high. I'm self-studying so by January I'll have a good enough knowledge on excel and modeling.
