Math major/ applied math major?ST
I am currently a junior at a semi-target. For the last three years, I've been a pure math major, but am considering switching to applied math as it has become more in line with my interests. However, when I apply for quant/ quantitative trading positions next year, will my new major (should I decide to change) hurt me as it is less "prestigious" and abstract than the pure math major? I'm worried that companies will just think I am one of the many applied math majors interested in finance, as opposed to a smart math major they'd love to have.
