I am a High School senior that is very interested in getting into investment banking. Ever since I had an interview with 5 investment bankers (2 MDs, 2 VPs, and an associate) at a boutique, I've been dead set on investment banking. If not investment banking, then I would want to be a lawyer working with the legal side of the deals.
I'm wondering where I should go for my undergraduate years. Here are my stats.
3.802 unweighted GPA. (Upward trend)
A few clubs, a 1-2 honors classes a year, an academic award.
Starting this school year I have a part time job (13 hours a week) and a leadership position. This is the first year any club at my school has had leadership positions available to students.
I will have outstanding recommendations.
I was thinking of attending Indiana University in Bloomington. Their investment banking workshop is the selling point. Yet is there a better school for investment banking that I could stand a reasonable chance of getting into?
Another thing, should I be a finance or economics major? I'm taking honors economics now and enjoying it a lot.
If my chances at banking are shot now, should I consider changing the focus of my ambitions to top corporate law? After all, the dice may have been cast for my chances at Harvard undergrad, but they have not yet been cast for Harvard Law.
