MSF's at trillium, fnys and others?
I'm looking to get into a somewhat smaller prop firm and I'm wondering what kind of academic background most of the entry level trading hires have at firms such as the following:
first new york
I'm specifically interested in knowing if most of the entry level hires here are coming out of undergrad, MSF or MFE?
I went to UF, got 3.0 and currently work in a nonfinance field. If I can get into an MSF at a school like WUSTL, villanova, vandy, BC, or UIUC do I have a strong chance at getting into one of these prop shops? Is an MSF even the best route or does it make more sense to break in another way?
thanks very much everyone
