I seem to have found myself between a rock and a hard place. I am a current student at what you would consider a "nontarget" school, of which probably many of you have have nevery heard. I am a finance major with a mediocre GPA (started college as an athlete and wasn't too concerned with academics). I've taken very few classes, but have managed to read alot of material and self-educate over the past 3 years while working for a real estate brokerage and investment company (yeah, family ties). I did well in that regard and learned quite a bit of a professional work place and how to communicate with senior level persons.
Since I've started back to school my GPA has been a 4.0 and if I continue at this pace I can get my GPA up to around a 3.6 and eventually a good MBA. I will be a junior (or a little more with my credits) in the fall and I am extremely interested in an internship this summer (preferably paid because of my current situation).
Do I even attempt to apply to a well-known sophmore program in hopes to obtain an interview, where I know I can kill it? Or just get on anywhere, possibly regional? Career service at my school? Despite my school year, I do have some professional experience and I would like to work in PE and/or real estate.
