I Survived

Is that all you've got?

That's right, I survived Black November. It's really overrated. 

It's interesting to see how different people prioritize and balance their lives. Some focus more on the job search and some on studies. I'm leaning more to the studying part, but I'm shifting towards the job search. Between organizing the job trek to the west coast, the various competitions I've taken part in and studies, I barely had time to breathe, and so I’ve finally succumbed and learned to let go the aspiration towards perfectionism. This capacity to multitask and prioritize and handle extreme load is a motif I hear over and over talking to alumni and really makes Darden grads shine on the job.


I allowed myself some time off today and went to my first UVa Basketball game, which turned out to be very exciting.

Tomorrow morning we’re heading towards Manhattan, where we’ll be having the third thanksgiving dinner this week with my brother and my Dad, who’s visiting the US now.


In a few days the marathon continues.

Oren - thanks for reminding me that when we get back to Darden, Black November will be over. What a relief!

Hope you're having a wonderful Thanksgiving break!

Hey Oren - Guess you would be busy with your finals.
I have received an interview invite from Darden and I am scheduled to have an alumni interview. Wanted to know if there is any difference / advantage in having an on-campus interview conducted by someone from AdComm instead of the alumni interview.
Also, would it be possible for you to catch up on skype sometime over the coming weekend?
