Tomorrow at 9AM EST, lives will be forever altered. Some for the good, some for the bad. The former will learn that they passed the Level I or II CFA exam given in June; their prize will be the opportunity to buy more books and spend hundreds more hours studying for the next test in the series. The latter will forced to look within and ask some hard questions, like, “Where did I go wrong?” “Should I try again?” and “Maybe I’m not CFA material?”

If you’re confident you’re a member of the first group, have a great day. If you’re palms are sweating and you know there’s little chance of sleeping tonight, know that you’re not alone. There are others like you here, and they’re all listening.

    The CFA is for quitters — there's only 3 tests! Love the testing experience? Become an actuary! Those fuckers have, like, 12 or 13 tests. Feeling ambitious? You can take the first two before you even complete undergrad! And the nightlife in Hartford >>>> anything NYC or Chicago could even dream of providing! Drive by shootings, empty bombed out buildings!. Bunch of old fat ornery fucks who think UCONN basketball is the NKI — Yeah….. and the proximity to nothing is also a draw because you will never be distracted by a social life!

    >Guy who took actuary 1 and 2, said 'fuck this,' and went to Silicon Valley for a decade.
