Went to UF but wasn't in MSF. It's a pretty good program and you can see all of their placements on the MSF website. It's something you gotta start immediately when you're a freshman and grind. From what I understand Herring can be pretty rude so just be aware of that and try to be on her good side. Try not to miss any of those meetings that happen during your freshman and sophomore year and definitely try to kill it in your GMAT.

I don't think you are familiar with the MSF program at UF. It's only a dual degree program and you can't do it after graduation from undergrad.

University of Florida is a great school bro, I regret not going there lol. Their placement is pretty good and they send a (relatively) high amount of people to Evercore and many to solid BBs. Just join that one finance club they have.

Regarding the MSF, you really only do that if you have to. Focus on grinding (if you're a freshman asking this you are in a solid position to grind it out and early overall tbh) your networking and start studying technical. Breaking in from UF isn't super tough, I broke in from UM and it was arguably harder because our network outside of Citi is tight (strong, but tight).

Also went to UF (Non-MSF) but can speak somewhat to the program. As the other poster said, it's a very good program with solid NYC placements, but you need to do that EFE program and continue with it from freshman year.  You should also look into Gator Student Investment Fund https://warrington.ufl.edu/gator-student-investment-fund/ which is competitive to get into and you'll want to apply freshman year to get the best experience . You will need to prepare a stock pitch among other things to get in. If you're not dead set on NYC and want to have more fun in college, there's RJ, Truist, WF apart from a lot of other regional boutique and MM firms. The business school has a lot of professional development events, coffee chats, and speaker series, and I really encourage you to take advantage of as much of you can. Also heads up Econ is classified as liberal arts and sciences not business, so don't major in that. Happy to answer other questions.
