Worried about CFA being that I was never a conventionally smart student
I really love my job in AM and want to stay in the active investments world. My job is very relaxed hour wise (40-45ish hours) but I use that to my advantage to stay active in my hobbies outside of work and social life on the weekends. But to stay in this industry and excel past the analyst part I've beenis basically a must.
That said - I went to a super non-target and found my upper level fin classes difficult. I was never a super top student and hell did really bad on my SATs. I have a friend personally who is a wiz (perfect SATs and GPA in a tough major) who gave up after failing the level 2. A lot of the people I network with internally mentioned it's severly difficult and ate up their social life and life outside of work in general which I'm not willing to sacrifice quite honestly.
Would anyone been willing to share some input with some of the specifics I've shared? These are just specifics I'm extremely uncomfortable sharing with coworkers, when they ask me about the CFA, being that they decide my fate in the role if I signal the slightest disinterest/incompetency.
