MBA Blog

April 22, 2007

Well the lack of blog entries on my part has been due to the fact that I managed to blow up not one, but TWO computers that I own last Monday. I think that takes some sort of talent, which I don't think employers would necessarily hire me for. I started with my laptop (which has since been fixed), then I moved onto my desktop, which unfortunately appears to be toast. I was waiting for that to happen so it looks like I'll be in the market for a new Dell. Last week I also found out the results for the Student Government elections that were completed the preceding week.

No two weekends are ever the same at SOM. Here's nine things that come to mind about the past weekend... 1. Weather broke 70 degrees. I believe we even made it to 75. This is truly something to celebrate when you're in the Northeast and it's not even May, yet. 2. Got to read a book for class that has been on my own list of "things to read" (Blink by M. Gladwell). It's not very often that you get to cross things off your personal to-do list simply by completing homework assignments. 3.

I'm Ezzard Batiste; I am a member of SOM Class of 2008. My background is in computer science. These days I'm looking to do something finance-oriented. For more information about me, please check out my bio. Yesterday I participated in a mentoring event for some black high school students in New Haven. We discussed some basic financial and investing principles. I was there along with several students from other graduate programs here at Yale, as well as a few undergrads. The high schoolers seemed pretty engaged, which made it a rewarding experience.

The end of April means decision time for many. Where do you send that deposit? Where do you see yourself living for the next two years? What will life really be like at "x" school? So, I thought I'd give a run-down of what could happen on a "typical" day. Of course this is my experience, and it is important to note that all students here have very different and varying experiences, depending on the activities they are involved in! About twice a week, I arrive at school around 7:30 am and set up shop at Food For Thought, which is a student cafe here at SOM.

April looks like it will be a good month. We had three parties this weekend (of which I went to one). Tons of sports going on. I played Bocce at happy hour on Thursday, and I'm about to head over to the fields for the first football/soccer game of the spring. Plus there was an ultimate frisbee game yesterday that I missed plus a softball game today which I'll also miss. Plus, April Foolery is upon us--activities for every day of the month. Check out what's in store for the month here. Good times.

Greetings, everyone. My name is Amy, I'm a first-year student (Class of 2008) here at SOM and this is my first official post on the community blog! Today, classes began for the final quarter--I'm still not sure how this year has flown by so quickly, but I can vouch for the fact that it has been an incredible experience. It's somewhat difficult to describe all that I've learned--academically and personally--in my first year as an MBA student.

Well today was the first day of the new Integrated Leadership Perspective, a three-hour class that seeks to bring together all that we have learned in our perspectives classes. I was kinda skeptical going into the class on how it would run, but if the first class is any indication, I think it's gonna be a great 7 weeks. The class is lead by Dr. Sharon Oster, who in my opinion is one of the best professors at SOM. She keeps the class engaged throughout, whether it is an 80- or 180-minute class.

Spring break has passed by so quickly. A group of SOMers rented an amazing house in Outer Banks, NC, where we had some excellent R and R, which included a makeshift "Iron Chef" competition (secret ingredients: tuna and shrimp), "Pride and Prejudice" viewings for multiple hours, basketball game viewings for multiple hours, hot tub, Guitar Hero, and a celebratory cheer for the "PR" for Proficient that we found as we passed a laptop around to check our grades. For me, I headed to Orlando after that: We are lucky to enjoy TWO full weeks of spring break.
