The other day someone who knows someone who knows someone introduced me to a "broker". He told me he will pay for my series 7 and such and such and then after I grab him 20 accounts. So I go to this "office" and I feel the blast of how should I say.."HEAT"? I think I walked into a boiler room. A more "legitimate" one..(In some odd way) I was wondering if I should just play along get my series 7 and just leave. Question though: Will this decision haunt me? I mean by getting my license its a good thing . But because a small firm gave it to me, which has no credible reputation from hours and hours of research I did, will it ultimately kill me in the future when I try to apply for a much larger firm? I am not done with schooling so this is why this is even much more puzzling to me. I don't go to a great school either, nor will a good school take my transfer. Definitely not one that will land me a job with a nice firm. However, I heard from others that  with a good gpa and  already having a license I can transfer into a  credible school. Which is ultimately what I want.So this is my dilemma, do I get the degree at a crap school and go back to another school for more schooling..(HOPEFULLY at a better institution) or do I,believe this garbage get my license, leave, and transfer. I heard that wherever you get your license from (sponsor) it follows you and might hurt you. Is this true? Please help. Thanks for your time.

Anyone who you would want to work for will pay for your 7.  Having it already will not help you, but if it is from a boiler room, it will certainly hurt you.

Your post is barely coherent.
Working for a jerk who take your leads will get you nowhere.

yeah, great idea. go get your 7 "paid" for, exactly how much did you estimate that is worth?

You could do that, but the cost for the 7 is $250 for the exam and about another $250 for the study material.  Is $500 dollars worth risking a career that you can make millions off of?
