It has been almost two months since I left SOM for the summer. I spent the first month+ being lazy in Bulgaria – sleeping late, traveling, partying, good stuff. I was probably one of the last few of my class to start an internship – just last week. I will spend the summer in London and since I came here it has been 90% sunny days, contrary to expectations.

No, it is not New Haven. :) I spent my spring break in Chicago and only now that I am back to New Haven I have the time to think about it. Beautiful weather - freezing temperatures, windy all the time and a snow storm to send me on my way last Saturday! So far so good - I remembered my college days, when after class I would wait for the Brown Line at the Jackson and Wabash station and the wind would go right through me in my windproof jacket.

I meant to write sooner, but next year you will understand why I did not. :))) In the meantime, I attended 20+ investment banking presentations, survived one set of exams, played in a football MBA tournament that Yale hosts each year, made a healthy return (16%) in a simulated stock market game for all first-year students, visited London and went to parties from time to time. Banks have been coming to campus and we have been going to New York to meet them.

Well, I am finally here... After a year-long preparation, application process, talking to students at different schools and hunting for MBA blogs, today I have the opportunity to finally sit at the other end of the table and tell you what it is like to be at Yale SOM. In short: it is not easy, but it is enjoyable! Orientation for my Class of 2009 started on 16 August - quite early it seems, but there was a reason why - activities followed one after the other in a hectic schedule leaving us with no time to waste.
