How a scam? I don't know any club that GUARANTEES you a full time BB offer.

Literally anyone can join the club at my school

Ivy Club at Princeton. If you consider that a club.

Ivy Club isn't a club, it's a lifestyle.

I think they are beneficial, nice to know you have others who are aspiring sociopaths just like you

My school has two. Both invest real money. You can land a BB gig here without being in either. They are not that important, but a fun thing to be in if you like finance.

Here's a straw OP, so you can suck it up and quit bitchin' about your rejection from the finance clubs

Finance is a scam too

Some state schools in California (and several other states) invest real money, 100K-250k+

My finance club had guest speakers almost every week and I got the opportunity to meet and have conversations with managing directors, portfolio managers, etc. of some large and well known firms. Probably never would have happened without the club.

Sounds like you just have a shit attitude and need to broaden your horizons.

Lol, are you referring to the Berkeley Investment Group?

Sure, among others.
Objectively speaking, more state schools where I live have some form of student managed funds than those that do not.
I'm not arguing for the prestige or merit of these, simply stating a fact

Lol mine is just a bunch of people who reference finmemes 24/7. Some people didn't join cause they thought that they were kinda arrogant. But we do have talks with people in industry and etc as well as learn things.

If you're gonna join a club, might as well join a fun club where they drink alcohol.

Who cares. Resume building is what everyone is doing is college in order to get that sought after internship or full-time offer. It's not just for "hardos" it's for anyone who wants the best chance of landing an offer.

Plenty of clubs that invest real money.

Harvard Black Diamond, UNC Reynolds Fund, Penn State Nittany Lion, UVA MII are just a few that I've seen on the resumes of really impressive kids.

Global Platinum Securities includes many schools.
