As I'm nearing my graduation from my MSF program in December, I have started applying to FT jobs. I am pretty much done with all the interesting aspects of the program and have only 3-4 bs classes to take, so I thought it would make sense to try to get a job now instead of later. I recently got an email for a phone interview at a lower MM IB. I know that I can tough it out in school while working IB hours but not sure how they would take it. Here are my options
1) Say that I will be doing IB while finishing school PT (my classes are at night btw so I can probably manage if the hours are not
2) Tell them that I already graduated, but do classes on the side (at night)
3) Drop my classes, forget about the degree while I do IB for 2 years, and finish it later
Ultimately, my goal has been to break into wall street, and if I can get it done now then I don't really need my degree (given that I already have my BA). My chances aren't looking that great on other fronts right now, so I am willing to take a shot at it than wait until I'm close to graduating.
Thanks for the help.
