Anyone here from California and still in college? Which school, year and major?

Are you serious?  This isn't a pickup joint.

You're right and I doubt there are any females on this forum. I was just hoping someone could relate so we could share our experiences as interns or have common goal of what to do after college.

Well I've been interning at Wachovia Securities every summer since high school with the same two brokers.  This past summer they had me take my series 7, which I passed (phew!).  Come graduation I'm looking for an I-banking job or possibly a job on the retail side (such as a wholesaler), but I'm really up for anything.  My long-term goal is to become a PM 10 or 15 years down the line.  Any words of advice?

if you wanna go into ibanking, why not study for your CFA? it's $1000 to register, but gives you a higher income outta graduation and more options.

Is the CFA on the same level as the CFP in terms of difficulty and adding additional value to a resume?  I was thinking about getting one of the two, but I am still trying to figure out what would be better to have.  Especially since I’m leaning towards a wholesaling job.

the cfa is no joke.  i’m guessing very much harder than the cfp and it’s a total of three exams (one per year, at least it was).  also the odds of you passing every test the first time through is quite small (i’m guessing about 12.5%).  i had one friend who took level I fail, level I again, pass, level II fail, level II again fail, level II again fail. then just gave up.  Another one failed level I, level I again passed, level II, failed 3 TIMES!!! passed the fourth, level III fail, level III pass (total 8 years of serious studying). If you’re a glutton for punishement, then by all means, go for it.  I took and passed the level I and that’ll be enough thank you.  The CFA is the academic equivalent of being lashed a couple hundred times then being dipped in lemon juice.

lol, i've looked over the cfa I book before (my roommate is studying for it). to be quite honest, it's not THAT bad. if you went to college/university AND took an upper division finance/investment course, it's basically a repeat (for level I anyways). at the very least go to a bookstore and glance thru it, but don't sell yourself short yet. =)
