Very interested in art and finance. Paint and sketch in my free time. Definitely more on the technical side, even thinking about doing an MFin (at Sloan) or a MFE. I previously considered a Statistics/Economics/Finance PhD after several years in industry, but academia’s rewards seem disproportionately low compared to the effort required.

Still conflicted about whether to pursue the hedge fund route or the PE route. For PE, I could see myself going to an MBA program, working at a bank for a year or two, then going to PE. But for a hedge fund, I might go to an MFin program, or go from a bank to a hedge fund.
