True, but that strategy at least got you to the point where you could explain yourself.
Brilliant. This reminds me of a highly spirited internal debate we had over the term "GAAP EBITDA." It went deep into the night.
So, yes, many junior bankers were nerds in college.
You didn't answer my question.
Anyones opinion on putting a trailing 4 semester gpa on a resume in addition to total? I like a few others didn't do so great freshman year. My last 6 semesters I made deans list 4/6 times with a gpa around 3.6. My freshman gpa was low enough to bring me down to 3.2 cummulative.
And like somone else posted econ majors at my school did not have the luxury of grade inflation as fin/acct majors did. I took plenty of courses in all 3 and econ was by far the most difficult. Lowest grade I had in a Fin class was a B+ most being straight As
I know it's disappointing. I've been there. But these companies get butt loads of apps of highly qualified or connected candidates. They can't make time for every eager beaver who couldn't cut it in undergrad
Are you serious? 3.02 at a non target? What were you doing all day at school? We reject kids with 3.7s from Princeton who worked at Moelis, Lazard, etc. etc. with tons of ECs. What makes you think because you had "work experience" you can be excused??
read the last 15 posts or so and I am not experienced in the field but would it help the OP (guy with the low GPA) if he did some post-bac work?
Assuming he can keep a 4.0?
Or possibly get another BS?
put your major gpa on
My major gpa was a 3.4 so better then a 3.2 but the finance classes really pushed my gpa up....was 2 classes away from double majoring but they wouldnt let me take more classes at a time to fulfill it. I know sounds stupid
Or maybe find another obsession
Lol so it looks like this thread has run its course on being useful to me. Thanks for all the tips everyone.
nobody at the buyside looks at gaap ebita btw. but im sure its the only way at sellside associated to fudge the model to justify some crazy deal # that your md negotiated.
College is the new high school.
But hey, guess that 3.0 justified my future children should get an engineering degree from cornell instead of places like cal/caltech/stanford. or liberal arts major.
That's because there's no such thing as GAAP EBITDA.
No, there isn't. But there is EBITDA derived from a GAAP income statement. And there is EBITDA derived from a cash-based income statement.
