You wanted to be a hedge fund manager when you were a little kid? That's weird.


High school little, not kindergarten little.

How many feet have you grown since high school then, that you're not little now? Or are you still little? Do you resent being called a little person? Or is midget worse?

One of the best hedge fund managers of all time, his passion for hedges got the better of him in the end.

For the record, I really wouldn't mind going to medicine(any CONUS school) or economics/business(at a top school, Chicago, Wharton, etc.)

How young of ages are we counting? In kindergarten I wanted to be a firetruck. When they told me I couldn't be a firetruck I decided I wanted to be a shark. I guess my aspirations haven't changed much.

My parents were worried that I was retarded when I was a kid because I kept insisting that I was going to be a steamshovel when I grew up or maybe a pony. Shame they were right.
