Financial advisors regularly making 400k before 30? You make me laugh. longskate88, ignore SkinnyGoomba's advice. If you don't mind just giving rich people advice, then go for it -- it's still a decent career -- but don't think you're going to be making that much that quickly. And frankly, it just seems "small-time" compared to what a career in investment banking/consulting/accounting/law can lead to. Not to discourage you, but your accounting degree from SDSU is not enough to get you into a top-tier consulting firm (or even second-tier). From there, it's a question of whether you want to work for a third-tier, and likely regional, firm. I would go the Big 4 accounting route in your shoes, but have no idea what accounting recruiting is like and whether they would recruit from SDSU. As you no doubt know, SDSU is a good state school but is no UCLA/Virginia/Berkeley, and is also behind Texas and Indiana when it comes to business. Its loser like you that are always shooting down peoples asprirations and dreams. Your a fucking sheep.
