    Hopefully straight economics at LSE, if not then I'm heading for UCL. I'm in Brighton, have heard of uckfield, but my geography fails me.

    Just a couple of things to say here;

    First McGill is a very good school and most people in North America know about it, however, it is not as good as other Canadian schools such as Schulich and Rottman at U of T which are ranked very high and all the major banks and corporations recruit there.

    Second, actuaries make **** money unless they work there way up insurance companies and who wants to estimate how long people will live and how many claims they will make
    actuaries don't just predict when people die - some work in general insurance and others in banking work

    there are plenty of actuaries pulling in >500k a year salaries plus bonus, and have plenty of time to enjoy their earnings

    Lawyers seem to have quite a social life compared to investment bankers...if investment bankers work around 100hrs a week they work about 5200hrs a year! lawyers work about 2600 hrs a year (at a MC firm) thats...about 50 hrs a week and the rewards are fairly similar

    i know of an actuary who turned down a mill a year because he could get more money becoming a partner of the firm he was at. not bad pay at all

    correct me if Im wrong.

    As an investment banker ppl will obviously get to learn how to invest and make money. And get commision from the profit made.

    even if u retire, u will still get to know how to make money and this time 100% of profits will go straight into ur bank

    But Lawyer ? u need a client to make money.


    well thats what I think. please correct me if I am wrong.
