Possible to break into corporate finance with a 3.1 GPA and no internship experience from a semi-target school ? What are my options?
So basically I am a recent grad from a semi-target school and had a horrible time in college and had some mental and physical health issues that crushed my drive, energy, ambition, and ability to do my work and get good grades. I almost ended up dropping out but stuck with it. Spring semester Junior year I finally started to get the help I needed and was able to make Dean's list the last three semesters, but even then I was about 70%-80% max of what I know I truly am, and that still is not enough considering the damage I did to my GPA early on. I didn't educate myself enough on career paths and internships early on as I had my head completely up my ass and did not land any due to my GPA and lack of knowledge about how to apply, and basically thought I could just show up and be handed jobs. This is moronic because I had access to excellent career services at the time as well. I know IB, PE, Big4, like that is totally out of the question for me, not in 10 million years, but I just wanted to know what options I could possibly have, or if I can even pursue anything in finance at all, to be honest.
