What college did you go to? Provided you went to college, anyway. What was your GPA? SAT scores? Major? I'm trying to get a sense of how smart all of you are. I'm interested in the correlation between quality of education and trading success. I went to Penn State, majored in Finance. GPA was around 3.0 and I scored 1150 on the SAT. I don't think that if you do well on a bunch of tests in college, you'll be successful. Trading success will come if you have the right mindset for it. IMO, the major determinants of success are the ability to think and act counterintuitively, discipline, and a passion for trading. I think firms that only hire graduates from top schools are selling themselves short. Any other thoughts on this?
