First off, I apologize if this is in the wrong forum or if I did anything wrong with the formatting of this question. My question is: "How hard is it to place into the Nittany Lion Fund?" I know a lot about this program, but one thing that seems kind of murky to me is just how many people get in. I have heard that acceptance is very difficult, but I've never heard anyone go into more detail.
The NLF is intriguing to me obviously because of the Wall Street Placement rate in IBD and Sales/Trading divisions and just because of the opportunity of being responsible to individual investors and their money. I am a high school senior that is constantly staying on top of financial news through articles, learning financial concepts through classes and reading books, and I have been a part of a similar investment management fund in HS, albeit on a lower scale. I am very dedicated to my future in finance and I know that getting into a program like the NLF is extremely important for my future. Any tips for getting in and succeeding within the club is also very much appreciated.
Also, if some of y'all have worked with NLF/Penn State grads in your career, could you please share your opinion of them?
