Investment Banking or Surgeon
Ok I graduated from a non target school. I got a 3.3 GPA, which is horrible. Last year, I go into immigration hold so I couldn't attend class and that made my gpa from 3.5 to 3.3. 3.5 still sucks I know. I do have alot of volunteer and EC/leadership activities and did internship at small CPA firm for 2 years. My immigration thing has worked out. I screwed up my undergrad in accounting trying to pay out of state tuition doing three jobs. I want to do something well with my life. I want to break into banking, if not become a doctor. Since my undergrad gpa sucks and I have no network, how should I do go about it. My plan:
GMAT (attempt to score in 700s) > Get into State College> masters in accounting (do exceptionally well) Work a professional job while doing masters > finish CPA exams right when Masters is done > Get into BIG 4, if not a fortune 500 company > Possibility get ino Top MBA program after 4 years of work > Investment banking analyst?
Yes I know top MBA does not equal job as a IB. No need for obvious answers.
OR Just STOP dreaming and
Take extra class at non target college to meet CPA requirement. 150 credit hours and do premed in that 150 credit hours Work Work Work. Pass CPA (back up just in case) and head to medical school after MCAT!
