Practice for London

Last night I met with some of my fellow admits, and once again, I had a great time. I'll give you the lineup: one gentleman MiF 2007, two young ladies in the MBA 2008, and one lad in the MBA 2008. I had suggested a bar that has a fantastic roofdeck, but I forgot where we lived and assumed the weather would be sunny and warm. Nope. It was cold and rainy. The benefit was that we all got some practice getting tipsy in a dark bar while it's rainy outside. Hmmm, for some reason, I can see a future in this...

Moving along, everyone was really cool. The diverse backgrounds of the people I've met at/through LBS continually amaze me. The conversation was intelligent and seemed to flow with ease. We went around the table and introduced ourselves, giving professional/academic/geographic backgrounds. We discussed some of the perceived hassles of moving to the UK (bank accounts, loans, living, etc.), but collectively acknowledged that we weren't stressed about them because we're just too excited about the benefits of life at LBS to allow ourselves to get lost in the details. I like being around optimists. Then we had a few more drinks and began to get into some great conversations ranging from summer travel plans to corruption in government to microfinancing. We shared some more drinks, had some food, laughed a lot, and decided we'd try to get together again before the start of school. I really liked knowing that I would be sharing some amazing experiences with these people for the next two years. The coming attractions that I've seen so far lead me to believe that business school will be a life-altering experience.

Next up...Admits Weekend!
