Ok, where to begin my first thread? I'll just say I've done many evenings of reading on this forum and its proved both useful and amusing. So thank you. Anyway, what i'd like to get some viewpoints on are education, trading, and opening up the correct doors. So here is where I am: I am 25 and I am in a career of which I have grown much disdain and just resentment towards. I finished a portion of my degree about 75% and then began working and making money. I have always had an interest in trading and have even successfully educated myself to a point where I've traded my own account profitably on and off. I decided I wanted to trade so I sent out some resumes and got some responses. All prop firms and all bullshit, I can smell it as soon as I walked in and it was more me interviewing them than them me. So with that being said and realizing that with my lack of education I could never get a real trading job. I've decided to finish my degree. I've sent some transfer applications and I think I am going to be attending Bentley College in MA. They have their own trading floor and it appears that i'll get a lot of actual hands on experience on the floor. They also run their own index and trade their own endowment which is awesome. So basically what i'm looking for is to see if you think a finance degree with a double major in econ is a good way to open doors up at REAL firms non of this 5k bullshit. No offense its just not what I want to be a part of. Do you think a Masters in Finance is a good option? Some insight to a man on a mission any feedback will be appreciated. thanks.
