We made it.
More specifically, the MBA Class of 2014 made it through pre-term and the first three days of classes – and what a journey we’ve had so far.
It was slightly overwhelming walking into the Blackwell on the first day of pre-term and having no clue what to expect. It’s like Lars said in his post, I felt like I was in kindergarten again. I was hoping I would make new friends, hoping I would like my classes and my professors, and possibly the silliest thing, I was hoping I was wearing the right outfit! Not to worry, within minutes I was talking to other students and feeling much more at ease. The best part of pre-term? You figure out that you’re not alone – everyone is worried about accounting and a little nervous.
So now classes are in full swing, and I’ll be the first to tell you, professors expect you to be on your game. The reading starts before classes even begin and you hit the ground running. Before I could blink I had reading to finish, my GA position is about to start and I am trying to figure out how to join all these great clubs! And guess what? A career fair is less than two weeks away.
It’s slightly overwhelming.
But I know that I am not alone. I had coffee with a second year MBA and know that what I am going through is normal, and that things get easier. Our entire class is extremely supportive of one another, and Fisher has incredible resources at our disposal.
Stay tuned for more adventures during my first year at Fisher!
