I realize that I am quite young (20) do you think this will have any affect on my chances? Also to be honest I am mainly interested in International Trade and Finance now, and I would like to get some internships in Investment Banking. Do you think I would have any chance at this? Mainly interested in work at consulting agencies and banks, but I would also work for economic policy think tanks and the US foreign service. I attempted to put this across in my statements.
Do I have any chance of getting accepted??? :/
