That’s a full 16% of my class, snuggled up here in the Bay. Every day is like a reunion here. I’m not kidding. Between my classmates, the 2013ers, the 2015ers who were finishing up their internships, and older alumni at networking events, I’ve seen probably 60+ SOMers since I got here in late July. So I guess I can put off that whole ‘moving on’ thing for a little bit, right?Continue reading “Part III: Home Again, Home Again”
In our last class before Thanksgiving break, we had an amazing guest speaker, Shira Springer, a sports reporter for the Boston Globe, who spoke to us about using sports analytics to predict the performance decline of aging basketball players.

Today I met my hero. I didn’t know prior to the event that he was my hero, but I left knowing full well that this man was the man I wanted to model the rest of my career after. His name is Jed Bernstein, SOM Class of 1979 (the second class to graduate after the school was founded), and I was one of 75 lucky students from SOM and the School of Drama who packed the GM Room today at lunch for a Leader’s Forum chat with Dean Snyder. He is an accomplished theatrical producer and former leader of the Broadway theater trade association, and had many amazing stories about his time at SOM and the connections he made with his classmates that last until today. What else? I feel like I’m leaving out a salient detail. What was that again?

These 1st Year students, man. They just blow me away. I have been so extremely impressed with the Class of 2015 so far. In every effort I've seen from them, whether it's football, chili, impressing recruiters, or rocking their first quarter of classes, they have poured their hearts and souls into making this year a truly exemplary year for all of us.

Woo, is it HOT in Brooklyn, or what? (I feel like I start all my blog posts with a comment on the weather, so I didn’t want to rock the boat.) I'm now just over halfway done with my internship at Etsy, and there aren't enough superlatives out there to describe how awesome this experience has been. I've already completed one internal consulting project determining the future of "Eatsy," which is Etsy's office food program featuring local chefs and caterers, and locally-sourced and organic food...

Here is the much-delayed follow-up to my first post on Japan, Frames, Trains, and Automobiles. I really wanted to get this to all of you right after our International Experience ended, but, alas, the craziness that is the first week of Spring 2 put a hitch in that plan...

First off, Congratulations to the Class of 2013! I'm so proud of you all, and going to miss so many of you that I've come to call friends over the short year. It's terrifying to me that I can already call myself a second year - I know I have very big shoes to fill. I know this kind of feeling...
Greetings from Tokyo! I'm happy to report that it is sunny and 65 degrees, and the cherry blossoms are starting to come out. I'm also happy to report that our first two days of IE have been filled with incredible speakers, company visits, and food. We also have, in my humble...
