Breaking into IB from Georgia Tech
Hello fellow Wall Streeters,
I am faced with a dilemma and would much appreciate any recommendations or advice you can give me.
As you know, this year's college admission cycle was crowded, leading to lower acceptance rates overall. I got rejected from all the Ivy League schools, and my only option is Georgia Tech. The question is whether it is possible to break into IB from GaTech, hopefully in NYC. I plan on majoring in computer science with a minor in finance. My other options are betting on a gap year or trying to do a transfer which is quite tricky as well. I am an international, if that matters.
Also, what other non purely tech companies can I possibly get into from GaTech? If I don't land an IB analyst position after undergrad, I think of doing fin-tech, health-tech (something in those ranks), then an MBA, hopefully from a top 5 school, and afterward going into private equity.
Are my aspirations feasible, or should I convince my parents to let me do a gap year?
I appreciate any help you can provide.
