From Ross to Wall Street...

<p>I'm considering transferring into Ross after my first year at LSA. I'm interested in finance, and was thinking about what type of employment/internships I would have if I do end up getting in and transferring.<br>
I got slightly worried when I read that many top firms look at SAT/AP scores as well when interviewing for internships and jobs. I have a 1320/1600 SAT score, 1940/2400, and 2030/2400 superscored.<br>
Suppose I do get in & maintain a high gpa in college, would my high school SAT score keep me from getting internships with consulting firms, IBanks, and other reputable positions/companies?</p>

<p>no one cares about high school stuff, although i heard they ask for SAT scores at times for screening purposes.</p>

<p>how often do they ask for that stuff? I heard some IBanks require that you have at least a 1450/1600 or they won't even look at your application...
Do all reputable firms, banks, and companies (including ones on wall street) have cutoffs like this?</p>

<p>They don't spend enough time on a resume to truly care about something like SAT scores. Unless your SAT scores were downright terrible I wouldn't worry about it.</p>

<p>I work for the markets and banking side of Citigroup. We recruit from Michigan and we do not check SAT scores.</p>

<p>thats good to know.. anyone else know of banks/other firms that don't ask for scores?</p>

<p>What if you only took the ACT? Do they accept that instead of SAT score, if they ask for an SAT?</p>

<p>ACT is fine.</p>

<p>I've been told by people currently on Wall Street that a good SAT/ACT can help, but a bad one won't really hurt</p>

<p>I was recruited by a couple of BBs back in my day (1996) and we were not asked for the SAT. I think students applying from non-target schools are asked to present SAT scores, but Michigan is a major target school.</p>

<p>i'm pretty sure everyone here already knows this, but Alexandre what did you major in?</p>

<p>I believe he did econ</p>

<p>I majored in Economics.</p>

<p>where i interned last summer use SAT score as a hard cut off so they can narrow their pool without much initial thinking. So in fact, a good SAT score cannot help you, a bad one can hurt you, not the other way around</p>

<p>bearcats: what was the cutoff? and what about act for those who didn't take sat</p>
