Should I invest in robinhood?
So I am a college senior with 5k in savings. I am currently debt free and plan on going to medical school. I was considering investing 500 dollars on robinhood. What do you guys think?

You will need many multiples more of that $500 if you are going to med school. Use your excess money for bills and food. Do not invest any money until you are a practicing doctor. That is, of course, if you come from a wealthy family that is paying for your tuition.

Other brokers are now going fee free. Although if investing long term a $6 fee isnt going to matter.

Not anymore, I have a little play account with them, but my TDAmeritrade and Schwab accounts have far better services and now are zero commission as well.

You're going to need that money for med school. Don't risk it on an investment.

Do you men "Invest in Robinhood" or "invest with Robinhood"...
With over sixty years experience investing/trading, there's no way I would invest "IN" Robinhood and there's no way I would invest with Robinhood.
There are so many more reputable firms one can use and who have a lot more offer their clients.
To “get into the market” you must know what you’re doing, why you’re doing it, how to do it, AND have an understand some of the rules & regulations that govern what you’re trying to do.
Based on the wording of your question, you’re not ready to do anything with stocks.
Before you invest in any security, the first investment you should make is in yourself, and the best investment you can make is by educating yourself.
Begin your education by learning why you should invest and the importance of being able to make your own decisions or how the pro’s make theirs. Start your education by reading “Investing for Dummies” by Eric Tyson.

Visit some of the more professional websites like Zacks Research - http://www.zacks.com/ Schaeffer’s http://www.schaeffersresearch.com/ Investors Business Daily - http://www.investors.com/default.htm?fromad=1
Some of these web sites will have advertisers who are worth looking into also. And remember, if they offer free information, get it.
Since your only investing $500, you could invest almost anywhere but if it were me, I would use a real professional reputable brokerage firm.
Good luckSource(s): from The Street

Doesn't much matter since you won't make much on such a small investment. You'd have to hold something for years and hope the stock price went way up.
