I just graduated in 3 years from UPhoenix with a triple major in math, physics and computer science and a 3.91 GPA. I've interned at a top bank the last 3 summers in their telling department but I am very interested in investment banking and am having some trouble breaking in having not gone to an ivy,
Where I come from, Phoenix is viewed on the same level as the lower ivies and Duke, but apparently in NYC (where I wanna work), Phoenix just isn't considered a top college. Is this true? And will the fact that I graduated with a high GPA in three years with a tough triple major compensate for Phoenix's lack of prestige when compared to ivies?
What do you guys recommend that I do to get a job at a top investment bank like Evercore or Goldman? I'd even be willing to do an internship just to prove myself or even work at a less prestigious firm in IB.
If I don't get a job by the end of the summer, do you think I should try to enroll in DeVry's MBA program (if I can get in) and take advantage of OCR there? I was thinking of waiting it out and applying for my MBA at Trump when it gets reinstated since it's a top target for IB/Consulting. Do you guys agree? Any other advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
