fellow traders. My current credentials certainly do not warrant the question in the subject line just yet, as i am barely 3 months into my "life" as a prop trader. Here i the situation. When i was a freshman in college 3-4 years a`go, i read a feature article in "Fortune" about the the brave new world of young multi millionares who could make "karmas" and "honeys" in a day, worked sane hours and had access to the most dynamic trading environments that could seduce any naive college freshie. That company featured was Tradescape in New York. From that day, my single endeavour was to be part of that experience. When i graduated, i skipped any interviews with cookie cutter IBanking and Consulting firms, travelled halfway across the country to focused on only one firm, the firm featured in Fortune magazine, and today i am a proprietry daytrader with tradescape. The question is. While i feel that i worked very hard ( with no referrals) to be offered a position with tradescape and feel like i have the best job in the world..i have worries that in 2 - 4 years when i apply to business school this job as a proprietary day trader may bear little weight for consideration by any of the top 30 B-schools (say i have great GMATS and college GPAs). I mean where do we stand among the ibankers, consultants, analysts, peace corp!? applicants??. It just disturbes me that people may not appreciate the value of this profession as i worked damn hard and sacrifice damn much to get it and work it. If u share the same situation or concerns as me or have views about it please let me know, i would really appreciate any comments. god bless.
