I graduated from a non-target top 100 public university this year and want to know if it's possible for me to break into IB. The problem is that I was a biochemistry major and recently changed my career interests. I have a significant amount of prestigious research experiences and internships, among other activities, and have a 3.96 GPA. Would it at all be possible for me to apply for an analyst position this upcoming year? I've heard that some banks value academic diversity and select applicants from different academic backgrounds.
