    Default Sentence rephrase and grammatical correction

    Dear all,

    1.) Little did I know that reading Satyajit Das's Traders, Guns & Money would lead to a major in Finance.

    Is the above sentence grammatically correct?

    2.) I read her memoir and it sparked (my) interest in the subject, which led me to declare my major in Finance/ to pursue major in Finance.

    Is there anyway to rephrase the above sentence to make it more concise?

    3.) In December(,) I will graduate from the University of Illinois with a degree in Finance.

    Should I add a comma after December and is it grammatically correct?

    4.) Since then, my cumulative GPA has improved from X to Y.

    Is the above sentence grammatically correct too?







    Thank you for your time.

    1.) Little did I know that reading Satyajit Das's Traders, Guns & Money would lead to a major in Finance.

    Italics only for the title, not the author. The capital F is a matter of style.

    2.) I read her memoir and it sparked (my) interest in the subject, which led me to declare my major in Finance/ to pursue major in Finance.

    Her memoirs sparked my interest and led to my studying for a major in finance.

    Her memoirs were the catalyst for my major in finance.

    3.) In December I will graduate from the University of Illinois with a degree in Finance.

    No comma.

    4.) Since then my cumulative GPA has improved from X to Y.

    Again, no comma.
