hi guys...had a quick question. i personally don't drink. i'm asian and 1 drink i'm bright red...i don't get drunk but i'm just red and look ridiculous.
so when it comes to recruiting events and formal dinners and all, what should i do? i've always been okay so far in my career just avoiding drinking completely, and people seem to be okay with it. but from what i seem to gather in bschool recruiting, there's a lot of alcohol involved...
I would approach the situation lightheartedly if possible. If asked about it, a quick, seemingly off the cuff "it ruins my complexion" and a smile will most likely get a laugh and disarm any awkwardness the situation might create.
That said, people who choose not to drink are very commonplace and I highly doubt it would be brought up in the bschool atmosphere.
You will be surprised how many people DO NOT drink at school. There are people whose religion doesn't allow it and there are people who just don't...there are also people who very rarely will and will nurse one drink for hours. No one keeps track. The only time drinking is an issue is when people are out of control and had too much.
Kellogg Class of 2010...still active and willing to help. However, I do not do profile reviews, don't offer predictions on chances and am far to busy to review essays, so save the energy of writing me a PM seeking help for these. If I don't respond to a PM that is not one of the previously mentioned trash can destined messages, please don't take it personally I get so many messages I have a hard to responding to most. The more interesting, compelling, or humorous you message the more likely I am to respond. GMAT Club Premium Membership - big benefits and savings
I'll echo River's comments. Every event I've ever attended has always had non-alcoholic beverages available and nobody cares if you're drinking or not.
There are people who just don't drink, but there are also a lot of people who drink but don't want to drink at certain times (got an exam the next day, etc). Any time I've decided not to drink I've never felt any peer pressure at all.
