I was wondering what would be a good 4 year plan in college for someone who wants to be an actuary in terms of extra curriculars and work experience. I already know that it is a good idea to take a lot of math, computer science, and business classes, but what about work experience? For freshman and sophomore years, would working/interning for a company be a good idea? And what if there are no actuary firms in my state that would let me work there (I live in OR) since it's a small state? How do I get work experience as an actuary then?
Also, does prestige of your school matter for being an actuary?
