With 2 years of rotational finance experience(project management and financial analysis) im seeking an investment analyst role(sitting for CFA level 1 in December 2018).

Why don't you take L1 in June?

The L1 Dec and L2 June seems a bit tight.

Charlotte is ok. I would stay in NYC if I were you. Your cost of living might be lower in NC, but I feel living in NYC increases earnings potential.
