Random question! Does anyone know which schools offer organized pre-MBA trips for admitted incoming students? So far I've heard of Kellogg, Ross, and CBS offering these trips... any others?

The amount of participation varies greatly from schools and so do the number of options. Not a deciding factor, but I found it a great way to start off the experience.

The more interesting, compelling, or humorous you message the more likely I am to respond.

I'm not aware of any pre-MBA trips at Wharton yet but they do have a 3 day "learning team retreat" as part of the mandatory pre-term stuff in August.

Can you share any examples of these?
(length, destination, cost, etc)?

P.S. No, I am not trying to invite myself, just curious.

Here's the Booth one:

Wow I'm really envious of the CBS one right now. It's like a month long. The Booth one is just like a 1-week getaway.
