We decided to follow up with some of our past MBA blogger interviewees to see where their admissions journey brought them. Next in our series is Chhaya, author of the blog, “ccatcher’s mba chronicle” and first year student at CMU Tepper. The original interview with Chhaya can be found here.
Accepted: What other programs did you consider in addition to Tepper? What helped you make your final decision?
Chhaya: I considered the MMM at Kellogg, MBA at Tuck, ISB, Tepper and Cornell. I got two offers and I picked Tepper because of the interactions I had with the Tepper community.
Accepted: What is your favorite thing about Tepper so far?
Chhaya: It has to be the people and the small class size. I know each of my classmates and almost all the second years. I also love the collaborative culture.
Accepted: If you could change one thing about Tepper, what would it be?
Chhaya: The food in the cafeteria in Tepper, but then there are so many better options in the university that the options at Tepper cafeteria don't bother me much.
Accepted: Can you tell us about your involvement with the Forté Foundation?
Chhaya: Through Forté Foundation, we get many opportunities to interact with successful women in business through various events. It's very inspiring and also a great opportunity to build one's network.
Accepted:Is it difficult to be back in school after a few years off? What would you recommend to incoming b-schoolers to help them get back in school shape?
Chhaya: I am enjoying my experience at school. The most important thing to do before school is to exhaustively cover any pre-school material that the school sends.
