Default starter thread for Purdue

I just wanted to start a thread for Purdue. It's a great school. The actuarial science program has developed into a very decent program. The program prepares you for a decent number of exams to start out working with, while at the same time offering a very good recruiting program through its actuary club. In my personal opinion, it's the best option for a student considering actuarial science in Indiana.

This thread has 1,741 views and -zero- replies. I suppose the other Boilermakers are too cool to post on the nerd forum.

Agree with jelizmanning, Purdue is a great university. In addition, almost all actuaries at Purdue recieve applied statistics degree and management minor. All you have to do is just take one additional class that is very useful for actuaries
