Citadel with 3.2 GPA

Nov 15 30 Comments

Is it possible to get an internship at Citadel with a 3.2 GPA? I have 4 previous internships, and have offers at FG, Jane Street, and other quant firms, plus accomplishments at ICPC. Despite all this it seems like Citadel has a hard cutoff at 3.8. Is it possible to get around this with a referral?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

TC: 200k

    Why not just go to Jane street?.. and also why is your tag “New” instead of one your past internships?

      He probably created the account after he didn't have access to the email anymore.

      With which company email address? Unless blind doesn’t require that anymore

      I go to a school with a co-op program so I need to do one more internship (after Jane Street) before graduation.

      Do you enjoy currently being at Amazon, and how does it compare to Citadel (is that HF or Securities)?

      Thanks for the reply! Was this for an engineering role, and how recent was it? (if you dont mind) I go to Waterloo.

      I'm mostly looking for companies that have strong new grad offers and also host off cycle interns.

      Thats good to know, I'd heard from people interning there about a cutoff but it seemed strange. Thanks!

      I don't get it. If you get a return offer from one of your 5, then can't you just start whenever you graduate?

      Unfortunately, unlike an internship, I can't legally work in the US without a diploma. I have to wait until I graduate unless I work at a Canadian office.

      I know, I'm from loo too. If you skip your 6th co-op can't you graduate a term early and have them give you an earlier start date?
      Nov 15
    • OP
      Oh I see, from what I've heard even if you graduate in December, you don't get your actual degree until April.

      Why prorate? Tc means your total annual income.
      Nov 15
    • OP
      Yeah I guess the TC is around 54k for the 14 weeks, but I'll be doing 2 internships in 2020 so it will end up a bit higher.

    Why would you bother with Citadel after getting an offer from Jane Street? Also their cutoff is definitely lower than 3.8.

    Your school is P? Otherwise I had a hard time to put pieces together. Lol

    • OP
      Not P (if I'm understanding correctly). I go to a target Canadian school.

      Citadel does have a GPA requirement, after passing interviews, they ask your GPA(along with others) before formal offer. I don’t know the minimum though

    Doesn’t JSC have a minimum GPA requirement too? Or are they hiring shit GPAs from a school known for inflating grades now? @Jane Street Capital please verify
