Hi, I'm a sophomore at Northeastern University, a non-target in Boston. They have a co-op program where students can choose to do 2 or 3 six-month long internships. Each one goes from July - December. My first one starts this July.
I want to stay in undergrad longer so I chose three, therefore my projected graduation date is May 2021 (I began in Sept 2016). I plan to cancel my third co-op in hopes of replacing it with a junior summer analyst position theoretically in Summer 2020. Will I be at a disadvantage to banks if I'm a fourth year instead of a third year while recruiting for it?
some background if this helps: 3.73, interned at a small consulting firm freshman summer, interned at a search fund sophomore fall, and will have two more additional co-op finance experiences by the time recruiting comes around. also in a business fraternity and hold a leadership position in an impact investing club.
