Just discovered this site and am very happy I did!
Anyway, I recently graduated from a t-25 public school with a liberal arts major. However, I have always wanted to break into thefield but am finding it difficult with a non-finance background.
This is why I was planning on applying to some masters in finance programs (Vanderbilt is @ the top of my list, also looking at a few others). I'm wondering whether or not you think this would be advisable for a person in my position. Will it help me break into the industry, assuming I network my a** off? Or should I simply save the $$ (Vanderbilt's program is $40,000, not including living expenses) and try to break into the ER field with a liberal arts bachelor's degree?
Oh, and here are my stats, in case that will help you give me advice.
GRE: 1350 (730 Q, 620 V)
I have two internships at a governmental agency. However, I have no finance-related internships of any sort.
Involved in a few clubs in college, nothing spectacular though.
Please advise me. Thank you so much for your opinions.
