I have a question about my internship opportunities for the summer. Firstly, I'd like to give a brief background of myself. I am a rising junior accounting major at a top 25 state college. I have ~3.0 GPA, with 2 business development internship at local start up companies under my belt. I have participated in research with a graduate school professor for 2 years. I am also the business manager of 4 student organizations and have participated as a VITA volunteer for 40+ hours (volunteer tax preparation for low income families.)
I am afraid that because of my low GPA and lack of pure accounting positions, I may be disqualified for many internship opportunities (big 4, large regional accounting firms, Fortune 500 etc.) What types/range of internships should I realistically be aiming for?
