Give the book "Young Money" by Kevin Roose a read. It's a quick read, incredibly entertaining, but also pretty enlightening as to the culture of IB. As with anything, take it with a grain of salt, but it can give you an idea of what life may be like if you end up going IB. Personally, I left the book feeling incredibly relieved I took a Corporate Finance track. Consulting is the goal, though.

Study hard. If you're looking to be really rich, you probably need to go into finance. Get into the best college you possibly can; study economics or finance. Wall Street loves to recruit from the Ivy League (mostly Harvard, Yale, and Princeton), University of Chicago, and Stanford. Be prepared to put in grueling hours doing dull grunt work for years. You might want to read Young Money for a look at that lifestyle. If you play your cards right and are lucky, you could be making hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, possibly millions if you move up.

If you want to be moderately rich, medicine is a safe bet. Again, go to the best college you can, and then go to medical school. To make more money, become a specialist (e.g. dermatologist, cardiologist, surgeon).

If you want a riskier route, you might try and found your own company. If it takes off, you could get very wealthy, but keep in mind that most new businesses fail.
