AuthorTopic: CFA Worthwhile?

I have a question and I'd like opinions from those in the financial community. Should I continue with the CFA?

I'm currently a summer associate at a law firm in New York. Assuming everything goes as it should my starting salary post law school will be 145k + bonus. I am taking my CFA level I in 2 days ... I am not sure whether I will pass and am thinking about whether I should continue the (grueling) CFA curriculum. I love investing and desperately want to become a great investor. I also want to build a strong financial foundation while I'm young.

Will continuing with the CFA put me in position where I can transfer to a finance job that won't require a pay cut? I assume, with yearly salary increases, the job would need to pay about 250k a year (that's including the bonus). Any other lawyers/CFAs out there who faced this predicament?

No, but maybe I can rethink law school.

Same here- Law School sounds a lot more, lucrative (??).
