WTF am I doing pursuing an MS in Financial Mathematics at Daniels College of Business?

This degree is going to cost $74,000, and I've always been an academic allstar, but now it seems I'm falling behind.

Need encouragement.
As someone who works in financial services, I suggest you reroute your degree to either accounting or law. Once you get your first job, get your CFA designation. The way the industry is going now, you'll have a job for life that way. Otherwise get used to layoffs at every blimp in market, or learn to feel up grandmothers to churn thier IRAs for a living.

What kind of derivatives are you having problems with?
