Buy-Side Options / Low GPA

Subscribe

I'm quite interested in the buy-side of Wall Street however, my issue is that I have a low GPA (3.05). Granted I still have a year to improve it and I go to the most prestigious school in Canada. However, which realm of finance would be least picky about GPAs?

Equity Research, S&T, Private Banking, Asset Management, etc.

Hopefully I could get some feedback. Feel free to rank accordingly. I have a passion for markets and I would love to be involved in one of these fields.

check out 10xleverage's post about megafund recruiting for PE. But in general a low GPA reduces your options, but assuming you network well, have relevant internship experience and whatnot, you can land something.

Remember, once you're inside you're on your own. Oh, you mean I can't count on you? No. Good!
