R1 decisions and Holiday season are upon us and we are feeling a bit nostalgic - how about a GMAT Club Runion? Where are you guys? What are you doing? How has life and business school been to you?
Please share your journeys, thoughts, impressions, etc - I would love to hear from you! I am using the format below but feel free to use your own!

School- Michigan Ross
Class of- 2020
Post MBA job- Product Manager (Technical) at Apple or Amazon - I am SO confused. Help me decide, you seasoned alums!
Current job- Still in school :(
What do you wish you would have done differently in business school?- Focus less on my finals and more on networking with tech startups. No seriously, I hope this act as a friendly reminder - GRADES DO NOT MATTER. As long as you are respectful and nice to your groupmates, please focus the rest of your time on recruiting and networking!
What's next for you?- Dominating the Indian food industry by creating my own gourmet Indian food trek - CEO at Butter Chicken Factory (Food Truck) continues to be my dream job!
(Optional)Please send us a picture from your MBA times that is close to your heart:

This is not a picture of Ross and Michigan but the first time I spent a week in Seattle and decided this is where I want to be!

Hi guys,

Hope ya'll well. It's been a minute, thanks for posting Souvik

School- Michigan Ross
Class of- 2014
Post MBA job- Worked at Apple as a Supplier Manager for 4 years, worked at the central bank in the US for 15 months as a program manager working on automation/process enhancement, now back in tech as a program manager in a software company
Current job- Support Program Manager (non technical) at Pivotal. Getting bought by VMWare.
What do you wish you would have done differently in business school?- Focused on grades a little less, networked a little more, done the MBA trek in year 1 (I did the trek in year two). I went to school with no sponsorship and a family (wife didn't work), so my ability to do things was generally limited.
What's next for you?- Figure out a side gig
(Optional)Please send us a picture from your MBA times that is close to your heart: This is a post MBA picture in the bay (I'm one of the people in this picture). Really enjoy hiking, so the bay is a great place to live since you can pretty much hike year round.

School- Chicago Booth

What do you wish you would have done differently in business school? Taken more entrepreneurship classes, gotten to know more classmates at a deeper level and nothing more. B-school was amazing :)

Hey Everyone! been steadily-wild since I left the business school :)

Fuqua, class of 2016
Post MBA job - Management consulting
Spent 2 years in the US and now I'm back to Asia

What do you wish you would have done differently in business school?
- I wish I would have traveled more. I did plenty, but perhaps could have done even more :)
Also, take more finance-oriented and personal development related courses. Those are the ones that stuck with me the most and I often reference them even now.

What's next for you? - Stay in consulting for the foreseeable future. Although taxing, I like the job - working on different projects with different sets of people.

Cheers!

School- XLRI, India

Class of-
2018

Post MBA job- EA to CFO in IT firm.

Current job- Bid Management in same IT firm.

What do you wish you would have done differently in business school?-
Should have utilized school resources such as books in library, journals, Bloomberg terminals etc more. Should have been focused in academics as I realized that you can apply concepts learned in classroom to real world more frequently than you think.

What's next for you?-
Still figuring out

I owe a lot to gmatclub for my MBA journey and post MBA also :-D . It has shaped my thinking. Literally, had a goosebumps while logging into gmatclub after 2.5 years or so. Thank you :thumbup: !
