Hey /biz/, looking for some advice.
Biomed engineer and applied math major from a top school, doing a ms in cs. Working in consulting. I planned to get into biotech but I'm beginning to doubt that decision. I want to make a switch into algorithmic trading / quant finance. I have no finance experience but solid math/programming background. Gpa above 3.5 but not fantastic.
Is it unrealistic to think I could get a position in a prop trading firm? Is this a bad idea? Worried that I've been blinded by the prospect of making a lot of money and will give up a stable career for something I know nothing about.
