Fun and Games (and Work) Update

  • Final Behavioral Perspectives on Management Paper (8 pages, wrote about the H1-B immigration policy and how flawed it is... DONE)

  • Final Managing Organizational Politics paper (10 pages, wrote about the American Red Cross, tried to give recommendations to the new CEO, feel like the situation is pretty hopeless though... DONE)

  • An evening of bowling with the Dean of Yale SOM, one of the prizes I won at the Internship Fund this year (Feel quite proud to have narrowly defeated the Dean, ... first year participant destroyed us all though with an average score over 155..... DONE)

  • Weekend trip to Cleveland to catch a Jays vs Indians baseball game, eat Chinese food, and a visit to Cedar Point, a good old fashioned amusement park (Didn't make it to the amusement park on account of the rain, Jays got completely destroyed but Cleveland was a great trip, lots of fantastic Chinese food, played frisbee, more bowling.... DONE)

Still to Come

Graduation in exactly 2 weeks. Social calendar remains packed. I am in denial and don't want to think too much about what the end of my MBA really means. Pictures from social activities over the past week and a half below in collage form as always.
