This is my first time posting so sorry if this post sounds stupid. I just really need advice about what I should do with my life.
I'm an international student studying at UT Austin. I'm currently finishing my Freshman year and majoring in Finance. I had a 3.8 GPA after my first semester but it will probably fall down to a 3.6-3.5. (I'm not going to make excuses about this. I just kind of slacked off and didn't work as hard as I should have.)
I also haven't gotten that many relevant experience. I failed to get an internship for the Summer. I'm doing a part time job but it's not related to Finance. I've done some Finance related clubs but haven't gotten a leadership experience in them.
Do you guys have any advice for me about what to do my Sophomore year in order to increase my chances of getting an internship for IB in my Junior year? What chances do I have of fixing things?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated,
