    Is it possible to make the switch? Yes. You can even get the missing VEE's (likely applied stats) without having to go back to college.

    There really isn't a "typical" day for an actuary. Every day is different, and that's because the task at hand can (and does) vary from day to day, and during the day.

    Passed P and working on VEE's? Congrats, you're in the same pool as about 6,000 other people ... maybe more. You need to knock out FM at a minimum; knocking out the VEE's would be even better.
