Can you add in the STAT vs SCM 200 problem with Smeal scheduling?
Marceli Pawlikowski
37:33
They are treated equally as long as you email the STAT department about it.

Does AP credit for Econ 102/104 count towards VEE?
Noah Donten
46:58
Yes Justin, it does! If you got a certain score, that is. they should have info on the soa website.
Chulwoo Kim

Do I have to get VEE for Math/Stat 415 to graduate?
Chulwoo Kim
47:36
or just passing will be fine too?
Xinge Zhang

What if I don’t know which one I want to choose? SOA or CAS
William Cinker
48:38
Are the RM classes the classes that are specific to preparing us for the exams?
Aidan Lake (VP)
48:55
You don't need the VEE to graduate, but if you want to continue with the exam process, you may have to take an exam after you graduate to get the credit. Therefore we recommend getting the VEE credit while in college rather than taking an additional exam after graduation

is there any open spot in our club, so I can apply to enrich my resume?
Aidan Lake (VP)
50:27
The SOA and CAS both have the same first three exams, so you have plenty of time! You can pass all three exams before you make a decision. At that point, your decision will likely be based on what industry you want to be in based on an internship
Marceli Pawlikowski
50:37
William, most of the RM classes prepare directly for the actuarial exams. But some like RM320w develop your knowledge of the industry
William Cinker
50:51
Understood, thank you
Aidan Lake (VP)
51:47
Bingxin, no need to apply for the club, simply pay dues and attend any of our events that interest you. We are happy to have you!
Derek Deihl
51:55
I’m still not set on my major, but I’m interested in Actuarial Science. Should I join the club or wait?
Aidan Lake (VP)
52:48
Join the club, Derek! Being involved in our events is one of the best ways to find out if Actuarial Science is the major for you!
Bingxin Liu
54:10
Marceli, seems like you get promoted in our club after grading my RM 214 homework last fall! Great job!
Akash Patel (President)
54:13
I would also recommend attending company information sessions in the next few weeks, Derek. Company events will give you a good idea of what the career is like. We have nearly 20 info sessions lined up, so I encourage all freshmen to attend!
Chulwoo Kim
54:29
For the Virtual career fare, is that cam on or cam off?
Chulwoo Kim
54:41
oh nvm XD

Recruiters will be able to “invite” you to a video chat. Everyone will start off in text chat but we think the majority of recruiters will immediately switch to video.

If I payed club dues last year do I have to again this year?
Akash Patel (President)
57:25
Yes, we require dues each year for inclusion in the resume books.
Noah Donten
57:27
Yes Jake, club dues are $20/year.
Jake Walinsky

Thank you

Kristin, we did not have a chat function for last night’s meeting but we manually recorded attendance so you will get a point
Aidan Lake (VP)
59:37
Derek, not all freshmen are "required" to submit a resume, but we highly recommend it!! We have had recruiters reach out to freshmen in the past and give them externship and internship interviews from the resume book alone
Noah Donten
01:00:18
Hi Bingxin, you can pay dues by sending me $20 in Venmo (@Noah-Donten) since I am club treasurer. There will be a slide at the end of this presentation showing my profile picture so you know you have the right person!
Akash Patel (President)
01:00:21
Bingxin, we will have the Venmo name at the conclusion of the slides. It is also on our website
Bingxin Liu
01:00:45
thanks!

Cormac Pagnucci
01:03:34
Is it required for freshman to sign up for the boot camp
Aidan Lake (VP)
01:03:59
Not required Cormac, but recommended if it interests you!
Noah Donten
01:04:02
Cormac - not required, but a good way to establish yourself as a top student in the club and develop professionally.
Cormac Pagnucci
01:04:12
Thank you
