Right now I'm in my second year of community college with a bad gpa, and I plan on transferring to a not so great school, because my parents won't let me go anywhere else. I know this will restrict me from breaking into finance i.e consulting or investment banking. Also internships will probably be hard to come by. So should I go to the not so so good school ride it out get all As, graduate and then get like an M.A in economics? Could this M.A help me break into finance, given my situation? The school I'm looking at says on their website that their graduate have gone on to Goldman Sachs and the like, and investment banking and consulting. If not the M.A what should I do? Should I try to go to a good school for undergraduate?
