My chances for a IB internship next summer
Im going to be a sophomore at the Ohio State University this coming fall and Im currently planning to major in International Business. However, I want to change my major to finance because I recently became interested in investment banking. But I have one slight problem, I goofed off my freshman year and my GPA is a low 2.5. I know I can do a lot better than a 2.5. Anyways, I'm classified as a pre-business student because I haven't yet officially applied to Fisher College (business college at OSU). And you need at least a 3.0 gpa to get accepted. So I'm planning on improving my gpa so I can apply to Fisher next summer and be an official undergrad business student to start my junior year. NO MORE GOOFING OFF, I'm planning on getting a 3.7 gpa or more, again, I know I can do it.
I also want to apply to IB internships for this coming summer. What do you guys think my chafes are? OSU is a pretty reputable public university so Im sure that will help me. Im also trilingual, I can speak Mandarin and Spanish fluently. As far as work experience (internships) I have none, and I'm planing on joining the International Business Club and the Finance Club this fall. Now, of course Im talking about small banks and firms, anywhere I could get IB experience would be awesome. And when do you usually apply to the internships?
