As I've mentioned before (and have many other second-year students), it's so hard to believe the end is so near!This quarter is already crazy - a lot of the classes are offered only at night, or at other weird times of the day/week.For example, my classes run 1:30PM - 9:48PM two days a week, along with a project class with local businesses, that must be fit in during the rest of the week.The really good thing about this quarter is that the majority of classes are ones that I'm excited about taking.

So another quarter is complete...grades are inbooks for next quarter are on orderteams are already forming for some classes and meeting times are being set upWinter quarter has some really great elective options for second year students!Intopia is a really interesting course - it's a full business simulation, where each week represents one financial quarter of a business. Teams of four people compete against each other, and use the skills we've learned during the MBA program to make the most viable business decisions.

It's the last week of classes again... it's pretty astonishing to think that this is the fourth time our class has finished a quarter!I remember listening to the second year students last year - they promised that the second year of the program was easier than the first. After the first quarter of my second year, I'm pretty sure they were all playing a trick on us - it hasn't gotten much easier!In fact, time-management is even more critical now!

Yes folks, that IS a mouthful, I will admit!Five second year MBA's traveled to beautiful northwest Arkansas to participate in this competition, which was sponsored by Sam's Club (which is headquartered in Bentonville, AR). The team consisted of Xia (Andrea) Huang, Mittal Haria, Raj Jaasthi, Parminder (Parry) Gandhi and myself.There were 12 teams in attendance, and two were from out of the country - Sweden and Germany, to be precise.

This past week has been a haze of interviews, midterms, projects, group meetings, phone calls and of course, the everyday tasks - like eating, sleeping (hopefully!), cleaning, etc.Although the Class of 2011 technically has until graduation (mid-June) to find a full-time career...
