Let’s Talk About: CFA Results

Are you among the happy 36 percent? What will you be doing to celebrate? Running out and buying the next level of books during lunch? Not as lucky? Feeling like you just threw away the last four to six months of your life? Want to get angry? Want to make someone pay? Want to see the institute’s denial of your quest to put their precious three letters next to your name with three letters of your own? Or just have a good cathartic cry?

Let it out, here. We’re listening.

    MBA > CFA?

  2. Guest says:

    I haven’t received my results. No news is good news, right?

  3. DJ LIBOR says:

    Well, I guess they threw out the Ghana exams.

    At least they got a good football team.

  4. Guest says:

    CFA is a waste. When are folks going to realize that investing is a Art, with some basic math guiding it.

    i passed…hope those knobs in Javits section J failed

    • Duh says:

      Was also at Javits last month. Getting lunch there sucked.

      Glad I passed. Not that it’s the NKI but it forced me to learn some things I had never gotten around to.

    CFAs stink. CFPs rule! TM

    • StuckInOhio says:

      CMT all the way. I like to draw lines on papers and name them after math things i find on wikipedia.

    • Cnn says:

      glorified salesmen no diff from used car salesmen

      • Your FP says:

        FPs (and to a marginally lesser degree CFPs) = glorified salesmen…..generous?? At least, a used car salesmen doesn’t pretend that he knows how cars work.

  10. Cfamba says:

    36%?? Is this the first year associates’ numbers?

  11. Kenny Powers CFP says:

    Does anyone know the CFP results from last week? I sat at the Bayonne American Legion testing center.

  12. CCPA says:

    36% pass rate? Hah, hah. CFA candidates are so stupid. This is conclusive proof that MBA > CFA. MBAs are so smart that the pass rate is always 100%.

  14. Ditch diggers says:

    We were not part of the lucky 36%

    ~ everyone at the SEC

  15. Ahgd says:

    kind of ironic to see that a “ccpa” herb is talking down on cfa. what joke of a mba school did your sorry cpa ass come from. and I bet most mba graduating rates aren’t 100%, clowning cpa, go run in front of a bus

  16. Hey dumbell says:

    it is called sarcasm = look it up

  17. Jimmy McMillan says:

    36% passed and 78% failed? The pass rate is too damn high.

  18. guest says:

    I’d like to know how those that passed – what is the best celebration phrase/cry that you can come up with? So far I’ve come up with “Epic Pass!” as opposed to the popular phrase of “Epic Fail.”
    Also, what festivities do you have planned tonight or this weekend? I think its only appropriate to those who passed to relish the moment – sure some of you haters might say “its only level 1″ but I dont care I just wanna have a jersey party at sizzlers!

    • StuckInOhio says:

      Great Success! /borat

      My actual phrase was “motherfucker; overstudied” when I saw over 70% on across the board.

    I passed. Studied the entire month of November. i got >70% in every area except for one. I am soooooo excited. Now it’s on to studying for Level II. I also applied to business school. Not sure how i am going to celebrate. With all this excitement, I forgot to eat breakfast.

    Once and for all;

    Top quartile MBA > CAIA > CFA > non top tier MBA

    CAIA is the new thing. CFA is the gold standard but becoming passe…

    • HFguy says:

      Depends .. if you want to sell Soap and Shampoo and Napkins then MBA is your thing. If you want to be a overworked analyst whose reports are boring past first para which summarises everything one needs to know then CFA is your thing .. and if you want to be a PM, Quant, trader then you need to have MSc and/or PHD in relevent subjects like Maths, Eco etc…

  28. Flounder says:

    Raj Rajaratnam was in my MBA class at Wharton. I’m a CFA. He’s not. He’s a billionaire. I’m not. He’s going to jail. I’m not. That means something about the value of a CFA but I have no idea what.

  80. The leadership of your PCUSA left the scripture behind long ago. This is just a symptom of a problem with all the leadership, not necessarily all of your rank and file. It is simply the practice of Replacement Theology, something that’s not supported by either the Old or New Testament.

    Best wishes; out of each one of us.

It has been so strangely open-handed of you to deliver easily what exactly most people could possibly have offered for sale as an ebook to make some cash for themselves, chiefly seeing that you could possibly have done it if you desired. These techniques as well worked as a fantastic way to know that most people have similar dreams similar to my very own to know the truth way more on the topic of this matter. I believe there are lots of more pleasurable periods up front for many who look into your website.
