I am entering my junior year at a school that some would consider a target school (top 12 usnewsandworld)
I need some career advice/suggestions.
I took classes from a state university and my credits transferred so I can very probably graduate this year (as long as my class schedule works out). I do not neccessarily want to graduate this year since junior and senior year were sort of set up to be my "grade buffer" years, but due to recent events I have some financial constraints and would probably be forced to take a loan for the final year if I were to stay.
I have been considering the field of actuarial sciences as a career option. First off, is this in a way a waste? A reason why I am iffy about pursuing this career is because I feel like I could have paid literally an 1/8th of the tuition, gone to a public school ranked in the top 45 (usnewsand world) and done the exact same thing (not to mention with a lot better grades and more free time).
I'm sitting around a 3.2, feel confident I can get it up to a 3.6-3.7+ if I stay for a senior year (I can overload easier classes).
Do I graduate a year early and become an actuary, or do i stick out another year, take on some loans and try for something... better? I was also thinking about law school...
thanks in advance
