MFE to Trading? Input Appreciated
Having realized that it's going to be almost impossible for me to get into trading (in any capacity - S&T, HF, Prop) with my current resume, I've been doing lots of thinking and prepping in hopes of perhaps going back to school.
I've been speaking to the head of one of the MFE programs in the midwest about possibly looking to get into the program. He seems to think it's very possible, given enough prep.
I've read in a few places that this might not actually be the best thing if you're actually looking to break into trading, quant or otherwise. However, at this point I feel it's the most viable option given successful entry and completion of a program.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this? I know this type of thing isn't covered too much here, but just looking to get as wide a view as possible from as many people as possible.
Thanks in advance.
