Is IB impossible for me now?
Totally depressed coming to realise there is almost no chance for me to break in.
Undergrad: Top 100 in almost all major world rankings, non-target for finance (UK)
GPA/grade : 1st class hons
Graduated with an intergrated masters a bit over a year ago. Recently got a scholarship to do a PhD in Chemistry in my undergrad institution.
Worked in a big pharma for a year and another in a research organisation. Had also done interns in biotech companies.
I have always wanted to break into IB. However, by the time I finish my PhD i will be 27 and have no related experience.
Just want to ask if it is 100% impossible? I would do anything just to break in, even if it is something weird like doing a MFin in a target/semi-target after my PhD.
Appreciate any advice or comments. Even if the truth is harsh please let me know.
