So at my school, Finance majors finish their program with a seminar course (I think most majors do, but this is the only one currently important to me). There are technically two courses, a seminar in finance course and a seminar in portfolio management course. The seminar in portfolio management course is by invitation only, and students in the course actually manage a financial portfolio. The money was donated by an alum for this express purpose, and the idea is that the best students in the program will take this course and manage the portfolio.

Next Wednesday, the students currently in the course will be presenting on the movement of their portfolio this semester. I don't have class on Wednesdays, so to go would mean making an extra trip down to RI.

I'm currently taking the first finance course in the series, Managerial Finance and Control, and I have this same professor in the fall for another finance course. I went up after class today (after having missed two classes in a row due to illness), and asked if he had handed the last exam back. I know my grade, since it was posted online, and I also know that I scored 19 points better than anyone else in the class. He said he didn't have the exams, but that I had done very well and only missed a couple questions. He also said that I should strongly consider going to the presentation next week, since I will hopefully be in the course next year.

WHEE!!!! Not to sound conceited, but I expected that I probably would be invited to the course, since I have nearly a 4.0, but having an actual finance professor (who is on the selection committee) say something about it is pretty darn thrilling! Just think how well I would be doing if I wasn't having all these health issues!

I just had to post about that. Yay!
