Please help me out! I'm at McGill University, below avg. GPA, and am currently registered in a program called "joint honors economics and finance" It is a very quant program, where I get to take upper year econometrics courses, advanced microeconomics theory, derivatives and financial instruments, etc. But, I don't think that I will be a quant, and I want to be an analyst --> later associate at IB (am also considering MBA and law school).
What I hear is that banks don't give a shit about what your major is. So, i feel that the quant preparation and respect that comes with the "double honors economics and finance" has no value when recruited. At same time, my GPA in honors would be lower than that in economics major program and minor in finance (major is way easier = higher GPA). Please, let me know if you think that a lower GPA with a quant honors is better or worse than a higher GPA with non-quantitative economics major and finance minor. I really need help before fucking up my future!
