Just looking for a little advice here:
I'm having a lot of indecision about my college plans for the next 2-3 years. Right now I'm a sophomore at UCA (a semi-target at best), and I'm killing it academically(3.9)8 and have a PWM internship that looks good on the resume. But even with that, i feel it's near impossible to break into finance from UCLA. I am wondering if I could transfer and here are my three options I'm thinkiing:
- Apply to Michigans Ross, I'd say I'd be around an 85% chance of getting in. I am a michigan resident and the cheap tuition would be a huge plus.
- Apply to Wharton, a bit of a longer shot. The most prestigious of my possible choices, I'd put myself at a 50% chance of getting in. Tuition would be the same as OOS UCLA.
Continue trucking along at UCLA, keep my GPA near a 4.0 and hope for the best. OOS tuition is very steep at UCLA, and it's been dragging me down, but I LOVE so cal and the beaches/people there. Try and get lucky and land an IB gig at a BB.
Whatever WSO thinks is a good idea.
What would you recommend if you were in my shoes?
