Is it over with a B+

Prospect in IB-M&A

Semester's been a little rough and I am on track to get a B+ in a class that I really shouldn't have. Will IB/ high finance HR notice this and ding me? Do they check grades in specific classes?

No I don't think so. If they did that, they would hardly have anyone to pick from, because a lot of people have situations like yours. It;s more about overall GPA, so work on getting/keeping that up.

Isn't the point to have "hardly anyone to pick from" considering the size of analyst classes is relatively small to # of applicants?

Oct 26, 2019

yes but it's one class, so don't worry about it. Just don't let it happen again

Also, the "best and brightest" that those banks are always talking about hiring are becoming harder and harder to find, so it's not like they only hire gods anymore

Sorry to hear that but no one will ever want to employ you. Good luck

Any recommendations on what positions I should try out of college? Maybe certain BO roles then lateral to IB?

That, or go for a small firm and then leverage that experience to get a role later on at a larger bank/firm/shop

It's just one class... your gpa won't drop from a 4.0 to a 1.8

With me, when I get a B+ I think that it is better than I expected.

Most likely.. have you considered tech sales?

Scroll up and see the class that the B+ is in

No worries. Make sure your cumulative GPA is solid. Also if they ask you in the interview, there must be a reason - you can explain.

You should try a little less. I cant remember which class it was in college, some management one, but the professor said most CEOs were C students in college.

And thats why your "professor" works in academia and is not a CEO...

OP all your work, effort, sweat and tears have gone down the toilet. When people look at your resume and see 3.9 GPA, ex-banking internships, club leadership positions, all they're remember is that "B" in some random subject - you're fucked

Rest in peace. Shoulda got an A...
