I'm really interested in operations, as well as finance. I know a lot of people say that it's not a good idea to go into operations if you have hopes of landing the, but if you want to stick around in operations, is it still really that bad? What is the typical career path like? I'm not nearly ambitious as most people here, and am only looking to eventually be in the 150-200k range, so is that possible in you climb the ladder?
Also, how difficult is it to break into operations from a non-target school? I plan on keeping a high GPA, so as long as I do that, is it possible to get in?
