I don't live in Santiago anymore, but this was a fun read. I definitely would have gone bespoke while I was there, especially because I couldn't buy size 13 anywhere but Jumbo!
Your captoes look great, by the way.
Don't spend on a degree. Network your ass off and get a job working. Investment banking is a small, small world and all you do is valuation modeling so any learning besides learning the basic models is a waste of time. You should be working on getting interviews at the firms, not on being overqualified for them.
If you want to do investments, like work on portfolios at investment companies and be more quantish, then start your CFA level 1 and network!!!

I just turned down graduate school admission. I originally got a ba in economics and minored in spanish literary studies. I'm having a lot of fun, but I'm also not working...

yup. wingtips+pinstripes+bow tie = original Ibanker stereotype.
Buuut, wingtips are cool for a wedding, especially if they're not black. Even if they are black, 95% of the people there probably wear the same shoes to work. I know I would...
^^^ Yeah, I have an A.B. in economics and it's far from worthless. Most small colleges only award BAs, like at mine you get a BA in physics and math too.
As for inherent worth in an economics degree, it's not that easy. BAs aren't the strongest signal to employers anymore, but if you are a solid candidate, you can apply for the best jobs out there when you study economics. If you're at a school with good connections, econ will get you very very far.
