Preparing for an investment club (Nittany Lion Fund) this fall
First off, I'm sorry if this is the wrong forum. I wasn't sure where to post this.
I'm currently a rising sophomore at Penn State University. I wasn't sure what I wanted to major in freshman year, so I didn't get nearly as involved as I should have. My GPA is currently a 3.9, but my involvement in finance-related clubs is nonexistent.
To remedy this, I'm looking to join the Nittany Lion Fund next year. It's a pretty well-known and respected club with very strong placement. However, with membership being exclusive as it is, the process to apply and join is rigorous. The interviews are known to be brutal, and prospective members are expected to have an extensive knowledge of the fundamentals of finance as well as the current market. And as of right now, my finance knowledge is limited.
I was wondering, then, which steps I should take this summer to prepare myself -- literature, online lessons, or otherwise. I've tried to do my own research, but it just seems like there's such an abundance of information and recommended material that I don't even know where to begin. Thanks in advance.
