Improve GPA vs Off-Cycle Internship
Looking for some advice on best next steps. I am currently in the process of interviewing for an off-cycle internship (during the Spring) that is semi-related to finance (they do modeling, and my role would be as a consultant). I have one concern though. My GPA is currently a 3.63, and by the end of this semester it will hopefully be edging into the 3.65+ range. If I were to take next semester off, I would obviously be stuck with that GPA (slightly below a 3.7) for Junior SA recruiting. So my questions boils down to this: would it be more worthwhile to not take the semester off and (probably) get my GPA above a 3.7, or more worthwhile to have another internship experience on my resume (even if it is not directly in finance)? If it matters, I had an internship at a HF last summer and I will be interning at a top 10 AM firm over the summer.
