Pacific Lutheran MSF

eddspjeddspj Registered User Posts: 1 New Member
I am a senior at Pacific Lutheran University with a 3.69 GPA in Mathematical Economics (minor in Mathematics). I am hoping to go into finance and am looking at MSF programs. I was wondering if anyone could shed light on one question; does it really matter where you go? The reason why I ask is because I don't know if I can afford to go to a school far from here, even if my GPA and test scores fit the bill. I am currently applying to Tulane (again, don't know if I can afford to head down to New Orleans) and a brand new MSF program here at PLU. It would be great if I could stay here and do the program at PLU. I know many of the professors, they align their curriculum with the CFA content, etc. However, I think that academically I get get into a much stronger program. I am wondering if I should take a year off and try my best to find a job, or do the program here at PLU. I may add that PLU has some very solid connections in the area as far as recruitment goes. Thanks all.
