Odds of Getting In

If you have the right education behind you, then chances are you're either ridiculously well-connected, or ridiculously good at all things finance. Either way, you're basically a shoo-in for the job. Graduate in the top percentile and expect banks to court you, not the other way around. There's a lot of competition out there for your expertise, so prepare for some aggressive offers.

Just remember that you have to, you know, get into the right school and make the right grades before any of this great stuff actually happens.
