Life at Tepper Student Experience Blog

Whew! Another mini almost done. Most of us MBAs are deep in study for finals, so we’re definitely looking forward to a couple weeks off from classes. With classes and club activities ending, there’s not a lot to say on this blog. Fortunately, the Admissions office has got us covered for content! They run a […]

Fall Break – 24 Hours in Canada

As Anita alluded in her blog about Chicago, fall break as a second year is a much more relaxing experience. I had grand plans of taking advantage being so close to Canada to drive through Ontario to Quebec and back. But as fate would have it, the last week of Mini 1 I caught the […]

Fall Break – Chicago Highlights

As a second year, life is a lot easier when it comes to fall break. First years go on career treks to visit companies, which, isn’t really a break if you think about the early mornings, presentations you have to sit through, and the happy hours after a long day.

“Have you ever even worked in an office before?” the interviewer asked me.   My jaw was on the floor. I had prepared for every possible question for this business school interview. I could tell my interviewer a time I demonstrated leadership and teamwork, learned from failure, and solved a challenging problem. I spent months […]
