    Yes, I'm working part-time at a (very small) hedge fund now and will be working for one after graduation. I also knew a sophomore last summer who was interning at a large hedge fund (Moore Capital, which has a pretty good relationship with Stern - sponsors scholarships and everything). Old president of BAP is working at Citadel out at Chicago now. It's definitely doable, but you do have to gun for it.

    My gut impression is that Stern is probably actually one of the better places to get hedge fund experience - you might not work with very large ones, but there's such a high concentration of funds in the city that it should be possible to at least get a part-time job during the year or something, and prior experience is always a door opener to future experience. Just saying.

    Do GSP students with strong GPAs have these same opportunities?
  • youkosirenyoukosiren Registered User Posts: 580 Member
    Yes, since after you matriculate into CAS, Stern, or whatever school you end up in, no one will really know you were in GSP. However, if you're looking for internships freshman & sophomore year, it might take you a little more time & effort since GSP might not have the same name recognition as the other schools in NYU. If your GPA's pretty strong, though, it should be fine.
