    Two responses to the same post, and who, exactly, has too much free time on their hands?

It would have been a good one though, trust me. Have a great life, am never coming back to this forum, ever, I will be missed:unsure:. it was nice meeting all you people, goodbye and good luck being actuaries. :smiloe:
    I'm sorry to hear that. I hope your decision wasn't based strictly on your experience on this forum.Best Regards & Good Luck

    Seriously though, I'm just having a tough time making up my mind on what I want to do. One thing I know for sure is it must include mathematical analysis and be dealing with business/money/finance and NOT be accounting. As a solution I will begin FAP next week, my reasoning is if I'm in deep it will be harder for me to change my mind. That's my rationale and I'm sticking to it. I will see how it goes, it may not be the traditional path but I feel its the quickest way for me to immerse myself in the material.
    Sounds like a plan.
    Good Luck

    More like inability to read between the lines in your case.

    That's certainly a possibility. Another is people's lack of sarcasm detection without a red font.
