First time poster here. Looking to beef up my resume for my next internship, someone suggested the 65 to me because you don't need a degree to take it and am considering doing that or any certification that could be of value.

For background I'm a sophomore in the middle of a 6 month internship at a mutual fund company w/ ~$160B AUM working with performance and consultant databases. I go to Northeastern University (semi-target), concentrating in Finance and Management with a minor in Economics. My GPA is a 3.3 right now but I'm working on getting that up and think I can end up graduating with a 3.5. I'm in my first of three six month long internships (called co-ops here), and really want to make up for my lower end GPA with something that will make my resume pop. Involved in multiple business related extracurriculars, and have taken a Wall Street Prep Financial Modeling Seminar for DCF and FCF. Also have my Bloomberg essentials already.

Not quite sure yet what path I want to go down, but I'm interested in PE, HF, VC, IB, even management consulting. Would love to hear what you guys have to say, thank you.
