it is exactly 7%. Nearly no shot.

Not really, but there is no formula for drive and ambition. Anyone can make a career change, some are harder than others, but all take lots of leg work, networking, and old fashioned hard work. Going from engineering to VC will be harder than say IB to VC.

I completely agree with zakk. Starting with a PT program puts you on a longer, narrower, uphill path compared to the FT kids. I just applied to the ROSS PT program and trying to make a career change into IB. The odds are definitely against me but I fully expect to achieve my goal.

If you really want to change career paths, FT is the way to go. You'll have better opportunities to talk to recruiters in your potential career change and you'll be able to completely immerse yourself into the program with little outside stresses.

It was a tough decision for me as well. I chose PT because I am finishing up a military obligation close to Ann Arbor and I would have to wait another two years to complete my military obligation before applying FT.

Good luck in the decision.
