I attend a nontarget school and I have a 3.3 GPA (finance & econ). I really want to land an internship in a prop shop for this summer, and I have been applying to a lot of places. However I think that I am going to be passed on because of the places I am applying. I basically looked up a list of top prop shop firms in Chicago and applied there. I want to apply to places that will give me a great experience and where I will learn a lot, but are there some good shops that are not only looking at the big schools?
I have great extracurricular experience in FOREX, and a pretty good overall knowledge base. I just dont know good mid level prop shops to apply to. Any recommendation would be great.
