I'm an international student and I'm about to become a senior at NYU and I'm studying math and economics and I have a 3.4 GPA.
This summer (before my senior year) I interned at VC in NY and have gained good experience but nothing on the technical side.
I'm trying to get into investment banking but it just seems like everything is going against me. I feel like I'm late. Being an F-1 Visa international student doesn't help either. Not having real IB or CorpFin or finance internships doesn't help either. I feel so stuck and it's weighing heavily on my mental health and I don't know what to do other than keep sending emails to people in IB and never getting replied back. Do I still have a shot at getting a full-time position? Should I keep pushing? Should I refocus my time and energy to something else?
I want this so badly. Please help.
