first start by asking yourself why pe. then get as many ibd or buyside internships and learn how to model expertly. at the early stage you are there for no other reason but to serve a support function. best slave money can buy.

PE is tough. Do you have the prereqs? How good were you at dodgeball during recess? Watch out for Mr. Johnson, he makes you run laps if you don't take showers after class.

learn to model like a pro. know the technicals and accounting in your sleep. keep up to date with markets. get good deal experience (boutique/MM IBD freshman and soph years, maybe BB or PE junior). network like a boss. more OCR will be for sell-side. as soon as you get to school, start using the alumni network for the big PE shops.

I don't think Harvard, Wharton, and Princeton are targets for teaching pe. Try a state school, more prestigious.

The best thing you can do as a high school sophomore is to pick out that one avg/slightly goofy looking chick who has potential to be an 8 or 9 once she grows out of it. If you can do that, the buyside might be your calling.

I literally cannot believe this actually exists. You haven't even started applying to college yet. Don't know if it's the same as PE, but I was told by multiple people in banking atleast that they don't necessarily want kids who have decided since the womb that they want to do PE/Banking. When it comes down to it, it's as much about being a well-rounded individual who can communicate well and potentially be in front of clients. It's as much about being the kid who would be good to go out for drinks with as it is being the one who can do the model.

Thumbs up for your goals and experience at a HF in high school, but don't let yourself become a one-dimensional human spreadsheet.
