Great Return Bad Grades
So I'm currently a junior in college, I'm studying finance and a minor in economics. I played football from the second grade and loved everything about it. Until I switched my passion to Stock trading in the 10th grade, it's the same euphoric feeling to me as playing football. I started doing my research on the stock trading in general when I was a freshmen in high school. I would watch Mad Money and CNBC as much as I could, along with reading books by; Peter Lynch and Jim Cramer. I worked my ass off as a valet in high school to set aside some money to trade with, I put 8K in my IRA by the time I graduated. I was able to secure shares of Dave and Busters at its IPO price of $16 senior year. This was my first four bagger, and I was hooked. Now It's not all about the money, but you know what, it's a damn nice thing to have. I am trading mostly options on stocks and futures. I am currently running a small fund of around 150K and in two years have an annualized return of 85%. On the not so nice side of things my college GPA is sitting at a 2.6. If I can keep these kinds of returns up for the next two years, while boosting my GPA to a 3.0, Do I have a good chance at getting a job at a hedge fund or any type of fund in private equity? Or would I be better off running my own Hedge fund?
