Hello all. I'm a 2004 VU grad. The Class of 2004 was the first at VU to have any students graduate with the Act Sci major; I think there were about five total. Alas, I was not one of them. I was a Finance & Econ double major.

Today I work in the Akron/Cleveland area for a property-casualty insurance company as an actuarial analyst. I've got 6-7 CAS exams done (results pending), and I like the field. Ironically, I was good friends with 3 Act Sci majors in my class, but none of them are working as actuaries today. This goes to show how exams are the great equalizer. As was said before, an Act Sci major is nice to have, but it has little meaning until you pair it with passed exams. That said, I'm more than willing to lend to a hand to any VU student that has questions or needs advice!

I just discovered this thread, so I look forward to frequent visits in the future.
