In my senior year in college i decided that I was interested in quant finance and wanted to pursue that as a career, however i got rejected from alot of the good places i applied to. I was wlisted at stern and even they rejected me from it yesterday... Anyway now i have to go to a LAC called Franklin and Marshall, i doubt anyone has even heard of it. Anyway i heard that the big firms only recruit from schools that have good math/finance/eco dept which are mainly business schools and top 20 colleges.
My question is that should i consider something else as a career? i mean i have talked to a few people who are quants and asked them about the work/life/pay and everything just seems perfect for me However since i didnt get into a school with good maths/eco dept (they dont even have a finance major) will it be very very tough or impossible for me to get a quant job (not necessarily on wall street, anywhere will do in a good firm) and should i consider doing something else??
