My second-year at Tuck starts tomorrow and that means summer has officially ended. I have to admit it was a great summer and I’m going to miss it.
I moved to New York for my internship and could not be more grateful to the Tuck Alumni for an amazing opportunity in equity research. It’s not every day one makes a transition from an entrepreneurial-type venture to equity research. Many prospective students ask me about the alumni network and I can honestly say that it is in fact the best.
Throughout the summer, I was also reminded about the positives of a small class size. The small class truly allows you to make friends, as opposed to just acquaintances. I think I randomly ran into a classmate almost every weekend. We stopped for a quick chat and asked about our summers. I have nothing negative to say about larger classes and some people thrive in those environments. However, if you do come to Tuck, be prepared to make lots of friends.
Not only did I run into Tuckies in New York, I happened to see classmates in many other places. For example:
While I was watching the Euro soccer championship I happened to see Hussein and Andrew:
During the Olympics, many people spotted the mystery woman at the opening ceremony but many failed to notice the other mystery person. See if you can locate Justin:
I look forward to spending another year with great friends. The summer has ended but the fun is about to begin.
