Hey guys, I kinda miss the boards and the camaraderie we built last year as applicants. I just wanted to check in and see how things are shaping up for everyone? Are you enjoying school, hating classes, can't figure out how to balance all the different aspects of b-school life? What's good?!

For me, it's been a tough adjustment trying to figure out how much effort to put into academics yet still leave time to research careers and speak with classmates about their professional/internship experinces, that's probably my biggest challenge right now - which I need to get under control since employers arrive on campus next month

I hope all is well!

Hi 2012dreams, glad you started the thread.

I'm liking Fuqua very much, there's a lot of camaraderie here. Fuqua is not kidding about the whole Team Fuqua culture. My learning team is laid back and efficient, which leaves me a lot of time to explore career options. The SY are very approachable, and try to give us honest feedback about the companies they interned at. The alumni are very help in doing informational interview. I find it easy to balance academics with career search and co-curriculars (believe it not, I actually get 8 hours of sleep), since I'm not going for consulting or finance jobs, where grades are important. There are so many exciting co-curricular options here, that I have to prioritize what I want to. I'm focused on doing FuquaOnBoard (serve as non-voting member board member on non-profit), P4E (work to start up a company and get VC funding), and took a cabinet position at one of the larger clubs. The Career Management Center and clubs constantly e-mail out awesome internship options with interesting organization, I wish I had more time so I can get involved with them all.

billyjeans and I are buddies now. We took an incredible trip to Myrtle Beach and booked a 4 bedroom beach timeshare with more beds than people in our group. We also did our Duke basketball campout together.

My only complaint is that there's so much school/career/networking/co-curricular activities to do, that I don't have much time for my hobbies - adventures in the great outdoors.

Not to drag you off-topic, but I thought I'd mention that Tucker Max wrote about his experience at Duke campout in his new book. Although he was at the law school, some of his experiences from Duke (and UChicago) are pretty funny.
