    I understand that there are 2 mandatory classes uniform to all Accounting and Finance students. In addition, there is a math course (chosen based on skill), along with an option as the fourth course. I was wondering when I will be selecting (if at all) the Math and optional courses.

    If you want to do more Economics, more inclined for Maths and want to have a wider range of options for the next two years, then you should choose Mathematical Methods and Elementary Statistical Theory.

    Hope this helps,

    Wow, so that would mean only Econs, Maths and Finance ? So much for diversity

    More like Econ, Maths and Accounting :p: The 'finance' portion of AC100 is minimal, it's only 3 weeks of lectures if I remember correctly. You won't be touching finance till you do Principles of Finance in your second year

    Umm all right then, but I'm a bit concerned about Sentooran's advice cause I love literature, languages, history and geography... not that I was expecting to be able to study those in AccFin (those modules aren't available, esp. literature :p:), but the prospect of doing nothing but maths, accounting and econs and more maths... Oh well, at least I can keep studying German and Spanish at the language centre

    John, that's pretty much the same with me. I love literature and writing. That's why I had to think very hard about choosing LSE over Harvard and Columbia as my first choice school. The reasoning was that I will be graduating from LSE in 3 years, trained both intellectually and professionally, which will undoubtedly give me a boost in the real world. After all, I won't be making too much money (if at all) analyzing Plato or writing an essay on postmodernism. You can go back to your literary passion AFTER you make sufficient amount of money. I am not shallow, but I realized that being financially stable will allow me to do more things later in my life.

    Spot on, exactly my thoughts - though I don't love literature quite enough to have considered working in that field. Indeed, you need the money before you can take it easy and do what you like (food for thought !).You sound interesting, we can talk next year

    BTW it's Johan, not John lol

    haha sorry Johan. Apparently, I can't read too well. Anyway, my name is Stephen ... or Etienne as they like to call me in French class (I don't know why. It sounds like ATM, so I like it).

    Yes I do. The official name is actually Phillips Academy, not to be confused with Phillips Exeter Academy, the failed attempt at duplicating the former. I'm surprised that you even know about it.

    If I remember correctly, you said you live in the South. I thought only the east coast, new england people knew about boarding schools. Anyway, don't you worry, as I am not snobby (at least I don't think I am). Sometimes I do get proud of being a student here, especially now as I prepare to finish my 4-yr stay. The work is very demanding, so spending several years here without dropping out is considered a huge feat. Nonetheless, I would never talk about the school unless the subject is brought up by someone else. I don't want to give off a cocky image.
