As I finish up my sophomore year at a target I am truly wondering this one question:
for the people on this website who are juniors/seniors and have successfully attained IB jobs/summer internships...most of you had to get good grades...which for most of us takes time and sacrifice
How did you distribute your time? Did you go hermit mode during the week days and spend most of your time in the library and eating your meals alone for efficiency and then party/hangout with your friends on the weekend? If you were in a fraternity (as I am), how did you say no to temptation for partying? Did you just go out on big weekends/big parties?
What was your schedule really like?
I feel like even meeting up with friends for meals can be so hard for me cause I end up getting distracted and hanging out for hours. being in a fraternity has been especially tough and distracting for me and has led me to go out so much more. all of these little things have made me less efficient and I feel like I could have gotten a much better GPA if I did not get distracted like this.
So to those highly successful college and future IB guys, how did you do it? how did you schedule your life and make time for everything?
