Chance of getting big four interview

<p>I am a junior, almost senior at a university now and want do an internship at a big four firm. However, my gpa is only 3.1 and my accounting gpa is a 3.7. I have interned for almost a year at a fortune 500 companie in the accounting department and have a "E-board" position in beta alpha psi also. So my extracurriculars are pretty good just my gpa is low. How likely am I to get a big four interview? or what should I do now to improve my chances? All of the big four recruit at my school but it seems like they only hire 2-3 interns each.</p>

<p>Your GPA will hurt you a lot, but you have a chance.</p>

<p>What I am most concerned about in the OP's post is that this guy holds an executive position on his schools Beta Alpha Psi club. However comes to this board for advice. I would think that freshmen and sophomores would go to a exec-board member like him for advice.</p>

<p>You'll get an interview I think.</p>

<p>I figured a lot of people on this forum would have good advice and personal experiences more than just people in beta alpha psi, which is mainly filled with students such as myself.</p>

<p>Also, I was recently elected (this winter semester).</p>

<p>The exec positions are a resume padding joke. I served as e-vp solely because it is the position at my school that interacted with all the speakers, so I was able to network like crazy. Younger students came to me for advice but I certainly wasn't holding information sessions because I felt like it was my duty.</p>

<p>workingatbig4, do you think your position has helped you land your big four job?</p>

<p>Yes. I was communicating weekly with partners and managers of all big 4 firms, national firms, f500 companies, etc.. It was an incredible way to network.</p>
