I'm a student with intership questions
Posted this on the money board. Just looking for as many opinions as possible.


In my first 2 semesters, I was a lazy slob and was put on academic suspension because of my GPA. My GPA the past 3 semesters since returning has been between 3.0 and 3.75 but my cumulative is still being held back because of those first 2 semesters. I've started applying for summer internships but most require a minimum of 3.0. Are those first 2 semesters keeping me from being accepted or are most willing to look at the past 2 years since coming back to school?

First two are hurting you. There are students that don’t have a bad first 2 semesters, so you need to have something else on your resume that would make a firm choose you over those other students.

re: I'm a student with intership questions
Well since then I've been able to join the national honors society as well as 3 years of college golf over those past 3 semesters I've done well in. Would like to think if I can get an interview I can prove I'm more of the studious person I am now rather than the one who held me back my first 2 semesters.

No they’re just looking at your cumulative GPA


What kind of internship are you looking at as well?

Depends on what you are interviewing for.

For starters, national honors society is not taken seriously at all, golf isn't going to help you get an internship (unless it's an internship at a golf course maybe), and the only way you are going to be given a chance to prove yourself is if you aren't competing with other interviewees who didn't dick around the first couple of years of school.

You haven't said what you are studying, but whatever it is, you need to get out and try to find some training or additional learning outside of school in that field.

Also, network
Do you know anyone in the industry that you’re looking into?
With grades like that and assuming a non target school
You’re gonna need help

Some folks learned to shotgun beer in college, graduated with a 2.7 and scored 86th percentile on the LSAT

Screw the rules

Calm down

I like you. I also have the rest of my life staring me dead in the face and want to make sure I have at least somewhat of a plan when graduation day comes around. Thanks for the words of encouragement

Intraship questions are handled by Counselor Troi. Intership questions must be forwarded to Fleet Command by Captain Picard, in French.

OP, you still have not said what your major is or what the internship you are seeking with.

We can’t give you anymore advice beyond “yes, you screwed up at school and that is holding you back”

This.
If he’s trying to get an internship at an investment bank coming from a non target he would need to have great grades or know someone

How about working with the SCA? Looks great on a resume and is rewarding work.
