We determine exactly when a certain randomly weighted, self–normalized sum converges in distribution, partially verifying a 1965 conjecture of Leo Breiman. We, then, apply our results to characterize the asymptotic distribution of relative sums and to provide a short proof of a 1973 conjecture of Logan, Mallows, Rice and Shepp on the asymptotic distribution of self–normalized sums in the case of symmetry.
