Hi a little about me. I graduated from a top 10 public school with 3.5 gpa and a biology major. I took the mcat recently and scored well enough to get interviews to a couple places but I'm reconsidering it all because I've always been interested in wall street, stocks, and numbers. I am currently working at a government lab doing neurological research. I want to try my hand at landing a equity research job to transition to finance and wall street as I would much rather do that than go to medical school. What is the best route for me to take to end up on wall street? I was considering studying for and taking the CFA level 1. Would this help? I know its a hard test but after the mcat for which I studied over 400 hours for, I feel like I can study for pretty much anything. Any companies that like people like me that aren't ridiculously hard to get into (like Bain and Mckinsey). Am I right in thinking that no respected MBA program would accept me right now even if I killed the GMAT/GRE?
