I'm just curious -- I know the typical stereotype of a Physics major is that they are "really smart", regardless of what school they go to. I know a friend majoring in Physics at a state school and people say he's a "genius". But of course for IBanking it's on a completely different playing field (right?)
I'm a Physics major at Columbia with a CUMULATIVE 3.2-3.0 and I have finance coursework (and did well) but ultimately, I still have a 3.0.
Now, would I be considered "smart"? Would my resume even get looked at? How much weight would my physics degree carry? I'm fine with either Investment Banking or becoming a quant. Both routes appeal to me.
