BVI and Graduation

It is hard to believe how quickly the past two years have flown by. It seems like just yesterday when I was with my core team during orientation at the Warren center. Unfortunately all good things must come to an end. There wasn't a better way to go out with a bang than the BVI trek.

Last Saturday about 180 Sloanies and significant others left for a week long sailing adventure in the British Virgin Islands. We rented 17 catamarans and island hopped, snorkeled, suntanned, and partied for the week. We had such a large group that word quickly spread around BVI that the MIT armada was there. We were often asked where we were headed next so sailors looking for peace and quiet could get out of the way of our storm. It was a great time to just relax and enjoy hanging out with fellow Sloanies before graduation. Classmate Michal got a great shot of the crew during the Sloan Olympics on a deserted island.

We arrived back yesterday tan and relaxed. Graduation is Thursday and Friday then a month off before it is time to face the real world. Overall Sloan has been a great experience and an incredible two years. Coming in I wouldn't have imagined I would travel to Africa or work on Wall Street during the summer. I have also made some great friends who I hope to keep in touch with after we disperse around the world after graduation.

It is hard to believe that this journey that started five years ago when I took the GMAT is over but after the experience of the past two years I am well prepared to take on the real world.
