How Low Can I Go?
So I got an offer to summer in investment banking this year. I am really excited. I know that it is premature to be asking this, as I don't know whether I will like banking let alone whether I will get a FT offer, but I am thinking about business school after doing 2 years.
My question is concerning my GPA. I go to a top target (HYPS) with heavy grade deflation, and I have a 3.2 GPA. I have had my fair share of Bs and B+s, and even a couple A-s thrown in there. I am a 4-year varsity athlete. I have other extracurriculars on campus.
Finally, my question. How low can my GPA be when applying to b-school (top 10), assuming I have good recs coming out of a 2 year stint, and a good GMAT (I took a practice test and got a 700)? Will a 3.0 be okay? As long as I don't get anything below a B for the rest of my time at school, will I be okay for bschool? What is pushing it?
Thanks for your advice guys.
