 FROM uwengdori: First time snowboarding One of the main accomplishments that I recently made is that I finally snowboarded for the first time in my life, or first winter sports ever.The last time I remember was in grade 8 when we were going on a ski trip and I had to back out the last minute because I suddenly got sick.I fell so many times, but it was at the same time very exciting and something which I hope to try longer hopefully later on.

 FROM uwengdori: Job Interview Season It’s here.Internship season.The key is on searching and applying for the jobs that you feel confident working on, not doing something out of pressure. Rotman has been offering various prep sessions and resources for me to prepare. All that remains is to secure interviews and share your passion for it.

Rotman Problem Solving Challenge 2015  [#permalink]

 FROM uwengdori: Rotman Problem Solving Challenge 2015 EDIT: Deadline for submission for this year’s RPSC2015 has been passed. Good luck all the participants!This year’s RPSC2015 is back!It’s an event hosted by Rotman MBA to encourage both prospective and admitted students to be engaged, have fun, and also get to know more about Rotman. Especially if you are aiming to apply in later rounds, perhaps competing in this challenge can also help improve your applications (just my personal thoughts as I was a late applicant). I personally also competed, and it was an interesting experience.http://www.rotman.utoronto.ca/Degrees/MastersPrograms/MBAPrograms/FullTimeMBA/GettingIn/AdmissionsEvents/ProblemSolvingChallenge.aspx

 FROM uwengdori: Lego Workshop LEGO workshop in LPO class. It was a good exercise to learn and feel about process improvement (aka lean six sigma) and how to communicate better.Experiences, experiences, experiences.

 FROM uwengdori: Days pass by Winter is perhaps one of the most brutal or discouraging season for many including myself. Distance from the school makes commuting more difficult and makes me feel lazier with commute, but things have been alright.There are strikes going on and final exams are coming.I do have to talk about the beer game which I had a chance to play recently. Created by a group of professors from MIT, the game is meant to demonstrate importance of communication, reaction to variability in inventory and decisions are important in bringing costs down. It was pretty interesting how what started simple starts to become more complicated as backorder kicks in.

 FROM uwengdori: Life these days Almost half of MBA is finally coming to an end. I still have the intensive Capstone remaining which started this week, but things have been ok so far.I also recently found my engineering ring again (lucky). Must not forget where I started.I noticed that Rotman Problem Solving Challenge was taking place today. I noticed it’s already been a year since I attended RPSC2014. Interesting memories. Time passes.

Do not forget Sewol Ferry tragedy  [#permalink]

 FROM uwengdori: Do not forget Sewol Ferry tragedy Today marks the first anniversary of South Korea’s MV Sewol tragedy, the worst ferry disaster in South Korean history.  294 deaths. 10 missing. Innocent young lives gone. Since 2008, all my volunteering was about making kids happy. They teach you something you never realize when your lives become more dull and systematic, robotic adults. While I do not want to make any pretentious comments, I was in mixed feelings when I heard this news last year.We are usually too busy with work, schools, and many other things that we often take what surrounds us too much for granted.  Our eyes, arms, legs, families, everything. what we always thought to exist obviously suddenly disappears out of thin air.Ultimately, as a business student, how can we improve everyone’s lives? healthcare, IT, business, consulting, anything. In the end, we need to focus on who ultimately smiles and if your time spent on it was worth your time and those that you love.Appreciate. Give. Stay humble.*The music was a tribute which Jae-suk Yoo personally selected to be played on radio broadcast in memory of various people who left.

 FROM uwengdori: Passion for running I started running as a cross country team member since highshcool and what’s really awesome about running is that…you never get bored of it!I participated in 10k runs numerous times in New York, but it was first time in Canada. Great experience definitely except I didn’t realize how I lost all my running thing. I used to do it under 48 minutes and now it took me 52 minutes.guess what I’m doing half marathon next week but I also have a final exam as well as capstone projects. It will be tough…but fun.

 FROM uwengdori: First Summer of MBA The following pictures perfectly describe what I’ve been up to these days. MBA is an extremely valuable tool in your career, no doubt, just that it is also a difficult process that requires devotion, time, and thoughts.Past weeks have been about designing my fulltime job application plan, searching for internship leads, studying for certifications, and resting.To those coming into Rotman this September, enjoy your summer, like really enjoy it before coming. You will miss it.To my friends, enjoy to the fullest.

 FROM uwengdori: more than half of summer passed I just realized that I actually didn’t write anything in my blog for past 2 months at least. So why not a quick update before I forget again lol.Is summer as a MBA student any different from when you were in undergrad?mmmm to be honest, it doesn’t really matter to me as I am from engineering co-op undergrad major with no concept of summer vacation, but it is definitely time when you can readjust your pacing and think about what you want to do. This could be my first and the last official long break in my twenties probably.What have you been doing?A picture it worth thousand words. here it goes.summer intensive course (2 wks of intensive lectures and hw entire day).  that’s one less course for me in 2015-2016.concert.chill w my favorite buddieslift without much cardio (recently started that as well)old school gaming out of nowherebroken chaireatbroken tablet which got worse after A/S.summer internship at a startuplet me just mention eat one more timevisit different schoolorganizing youth science classok more concertpreparing to go to China for school researchall of this in TorontoPhewI do think maybe I’m doing too much stuff, but at least it’s keeping me busy.I honestly can’t believe that there are less than two months before I get to go back to school…and of course the fulltime job.  lot of thoughts, lot of thoughts.at least let me forget all about this today and think again tomorrow.

Officially a 2nd year student!  [#permalink]

 FROM uwengdori: Officially a 2nd year student! Before realizing, 2nd year at Rotman is finally here. It’s only a first week, but here’s what’s different so far.Take courses that you want.First year mandatory courses still come as extremely useful for an engineering student such as myself, but also very stressful at the same time. I am taking only courses that I want that will directly help me with a career I want.2.  Fulltime job search pressure is on…!Finally, it’s your first moment to shine and make a career transition or go for that great jobs that you want for a better future! (or to pay off the tuitions…). There are currently many jobs being posted on a career website, but it is also very important to do a personal search based on the LAMP list if you know what I mean.3. More free timeIt really depends on students. I intentially took two summer courses in summer and am planning to take two intensives during upcoming Winter, which means I’m taking…3…three fun courses this semester. But, that doesn’t mean that I can chill all I want (while I’m writing this blog post after a relaxing nap). I still have certifications to study for to qualify for jobs I want, take extra courses from MOOC and prepare for upcoming full marathon this October.That’s about it so far. I took one class yesterday and it was very engaging and fun. I’m hoping that rest of the classes are as engaging and interactive.I will end this post with a photo of a grilled pork chop I recently had to remind me to eat something nice when I’m stressed during school.

Clubs Fair…once again from last year…except that I’m on the other side  [#permalink]

 FROM uwengdori: Clubs Fair…once again from last year…except that I’m on the other side of a table It was just about a year ago when I posted my excitement about attending the Rotman clubs fair and how I had no idea what each club was.View my last year’s post hereand before realizing, I am now already a 2nd year and I am now where they were on the other side of the table!2nd years had a welcome-back brunch and had chances to catch up.There was a feeling of nostalgia when I was quietly walking inside the empty Desautels Hall. Sometimes there is so much excitement here and sometimes it’s quiet. So much time had been put into this by all the 2nd year students.and all of a sudden, the hall is jam packed.Some snacks we gave out as Rotman Health and Wellness club.At least in the present, you might be thinking what the value of clubs is, but perhaps after a few years, maybe 5 or 10, or even 20, when you recollect your memories from MBA, it is my hope that you have something to take away from and can say that you were very busy, but learned a lot through clubs.Join the club.
