Advice and thoughts, on a few questions. please.

Postby BULlaw » Wed Jun 01, 2011 12:55 am

Career path in Finance and Law. Thinking about transferring to UF's distance learning program over my current university. Here are some follow up questions. Also if anyone one would know, does a UF BSBA-Fin concentration look better than a mid tier Finance degree?



Will having over 120 credits look bad?
Will going to distance learning look bad?
What is the best online school?
(I know its been discussed before, but particular to my situation)
How much weight does volunteering get?
Do Law school value curriculum or GPA more?

wtf is going on? seriously.

you're going to go to a finance grad school and then go to law school afterwards? what are you trying to accomplish here? you say "ilovefinancetrustmeiloveitidoseriouslyilovefinance. But law is right for me." Law != finance. seriously just stay at your school (as long as its accredited or whatever) and get a good GPA - this and a good lsat score will get you into a good law school. If you don't want to go to law school, then go to a better school so it will be easier for you to find a finance job straight out of undergrad.


edit: wtf is juco? i'm pretty sure it's junior college but i've never heard it called juco.

What?

Just graduate, get as high of a Gpa as possible, and get a solid LSAT and you'll be good.

They really don't care about how or why you do it.

Whoops, sorry about that. Just don't want to screw up, and got to over thinking.

I can't say for sure, and I wouldn't mind.
I plan on working in securities law or securities analysis. I am new obviously, I didn't know how many people here are familiar with finance career paths. I just trying to make it known that both are relevant. I don't like my current school all that much, maybe could have done more looking into. I do better with online classes, and I don't want to transfer again.
