I appreciate all input, but professional help is what im looking for…
I always thought it would be challenging and fun to become a Mathematics teacher and a athletics coach, but im starting to steer away with only one more year of college left… Im definitely going to get a degree in education, but i was thinking about becoming an actuarial student… I enjoy math, which is needed by both professions, but I have never had a huge ammount of money in my life… My father worked construction in chicago all throughout my life, its also a great profession, but I have 14 lawyers and 1 judge in my family and money was always in my viewing, just not in my favor… I mean that in the least snobby way possible… its Not just money, but it seems like a very interesting and exciting job to get in to, other than the exams… I am money hungry and I don’t want to go into teaching and begin to hate my lifestyle because og the salary… The only problem with becoming a teacher is that they are extremely under paid… I want to do something that interests me, but at the same time Im also making 100,000+ after 10-20 years
I am going to speak with an advisor at school tomorrow, but they usually do not go into a broad explanation about professional detail
I hear the first 3 or 4 exams are the easiest to pass… I am curious as to what will happen if throughout the course of being an actuary you only pass 5 exams opposed to passing all 10… from what I understand, it is definite that you will make at least 150,000 if you pass all 10 exams, but say I pass 5 exams, do not get any further, and I work in the profession for 10 years… what will my yearly salary look like?
Any further information about the exams and pursuing the career would be much appreciated
