Classes start this week – so I checked Carmen to review classes, downloaded syllabi, figured out readings and books and made sure I am ready to go for Wednesday. Just a typical week in the life of a soon-to-be second year MBA student.
As an international student who's been to the United States before, I attended my very first job fair last week. I might not gain an expected intern position for the coming up summer immediately, but I got asked for my resume 8 times. Not bad for the first job fair, right? DO NOT consider the amount of resumes that you have handed out as the final accomplishment.
If you are like most graduate students, you dread midterm exam week. Personally, I cannot think of one person I know who actually likes taking exams or gets really excited about studying for long periods of time. I can usually handle the "spaced" out exams where I have one exam per week. The real challenge comes when you are forced to have to study for 2-3 exams in the same week and it almost turns into a game of Russian Roulette deciding which exam you are going to study for.
