I currently trade NYSE stocks intraday - have been doing so very successfully for the last ~2.5 years after graduating from Ivy League university w/ degree in Financial Engineering. I was wondering if a B-school application from me (say, to the top 20 schools) would immediately be thrown in the circular file if they deduce the exact nature of my employment. Lots of my co-workers suggest using the job description that I run my own small hedge fund (which technically is true - I do have ~10M in buying power), but I am somewhat apprehensive about describing my trading that way. I understand these schools would have much more respect for some joker filling customer orders at a "prestigious" I-bank than someone who generates his own trading ideas and takes real risk with his own capital, but does anyone have any stories/experiences re: going to business school coming from a prop firm. THanks, Ace.
