The Life and Times of a Simon MBA Student

And they're off....

Pre-Term is over and I it’s the 3rd day of classes, I feel like our school is so behind everyone else. Reading all the other blogs people are already preparing for midterms in the 1st Quarter and were finally getting over our first week. 1 thing that really annoys me about Simon is that the grade is curved around an average of 3.2. This is totally ridiculous, since all the other good grad school curve at 3.5, a recruiter wont know what your grading policy is… Lets say at Simon you have a 3.3 (a bit above average) and someone from another college where the curve is based around 3.5 has a 3.4.. the recruiter isn’t going to know about policies, all they know is 3.3 < 3.4.
As you guys can see were pretty concentrated on finding internships these days. I feel like I will be the only person whose not going to get 1 this year… I will be in NYC over the weekend attending a 2nd year Simon recruiting event, getting some pointers. There is NSHMBA (http://www.nshmba.org/) conference going on in Texas… I will probably attend that to… My travel expenses are going to high this year but hopefully it will pay off in the long run… Just joined LINKEDIN a couple of days ago.. It is definitely a good networking tool… if you have not joined it yet you should… if you would like email me and I will add you to my network… well let me know what everyone else is doing ..
