Since you are still in school, use your free time to build up experience reversing malware.
Search with Google for "reverse engineering challenges".
I can recommend a book written by a friend of mine: Mike Sikorski - https://www.nostarch.com/malware
Mike also teaches malware analysis training classes at security conferences, like Brucon and Black Hat USA.
I can only talk about one malware analysis certification: SANS' GREM: GIAC Reverse Engineering Malware.
I obtained this certification myself.
Do you have any experience analyzing malware?
