Show them you can make money. It's all any of them care about. It IS about who you know, but also more about what you can do (for them).
Are you saying this as a figure of speech or literally? lol

...because if I became a self-made millionaire in college; the last place that I'd be looking is to get hired by a scummy wall street company that wants to fully take advantage of my talents. At that point you don't need them.
Not exactly it's nice to be a millionaire but would be better to be a billionaire and in that case you'll need some connects which you'll get at the "scummy wall street firms"
