I am a 4th year right now and I am thinking about applying to grad schools.
My goal is to get into one of the top grad schools in MS Financial Engineering
I am a Statistics major with a focus on mathematics
but my GPA isn't so hot...
However, I do have a research experience with Google and Ford and quite some internships in
the key department of a commercial bank (kind of like investment department, which is really difficult for an undergrad, even for a grad, to get into.)
My plan now is to go do an MA in a CSU either in CSU LA, SJ State, or SF state.
Since my undergrad GPA isnt so hot, I want to show to those grad schools that I am academically mature enough now to take my classes seriously. (So they dont just judge from my grades in Undergrad.)
Then I will also take a few required/important classes in Stanford, UCLA, and UCB. (Depending on where I got in I will go to the closest one)
I know I will have 2 pretty good rec letters.
I havent taken the GRE yet, so i cant say anything about it.
Does it sound like a good plan? Any suggestions?
