Hi everyone,
I'm new to Wall Street Oasis
and would appreciate some advice from you all.
I attend a non-target school (going to try to transfer to Ross or a semi-target)
Finance major and business analytics minor
I have a 3.8 GPA
I'm a rising 3rd year student
I have interned in wealth-management at a start-up firm in my area (roughly manages 40M usd in assets)
I am currently a intern at a fortune 100 corp - world headquarters
I am also a member of a large social fraternity (but I do not hold any positions)
I am extremely active on linkedin and have talked to various people regarding potential internships
What are my chances of scoring an analyst position at a bulge bracket bank or wealth management firm for next summer?

Thanks guys,
S

This isn't fucking collegeconfidential. That said, the arrogance you display by listing only a handful of firms to apply to is hilarious. Not to mention the fact that you are applying to a new bank called "Jeffries" and for some reason lumping in the Chicago Fed, IBM, and Grant Thornton.

Didn't mean to lump them together, I think any normal person can understand that GT is an accounting firm, IBM is tech and FEDS is a bank. Also, I edited my post, I'm looking for an internship, not a full time job.

My bad, that was the wrong title. I fixed it.

My apologies, I'm looking for a summer analyst internship position, not a full-time job. I'm still a junior in college.

Recent U of M graduate here. The best option would be to go to Ross. And it would be best if you went in as a junior so you had access to their internship AND full time recruiting opportunities. Its worth the extra 60k, unless you feel confident in your networking abilities. My roommate had 3.4 GPA (Maybe 3.3 at the time) and no investment extra-curriculars and got interviews for BB equity. There's a points system where you can bid on interview slots. You could be a complete monkey with a banana in your mouth and land a respectable job, but you gotta remember to take the banana out while you're interviewing. Good luck.

Thanks, I appreciate that, also, I know it's pretty selective to transfer to ross for undergrad. Do you have any advice on how to improve my chances in getting accepted?
