Curious to see some things you wish you knew as an undergrad that could of helped out your b-school application.

how about things i knew as a high schooler, such as i would have switched from a pharmacy major and shouldnt have gone to uconn? lol (although all worked out in the end)


While in retrospect I actually did a good number of things right (killed myself learning to speak chinese, etc), there are so many things I wish I'd known... most notably: (1) I should have majored in engineering / CS or something else quantitative, (2) shouldn't have completely relied on connections to get my first job and should have actually utilized OCR since I was at an Ivy and one might as well use the primary channel for all UG recruiting and (3) your undergraduate GPA does matter - A LOT - even if you don't want to go to law or medical school.... if I had realized this I'd have gotten a 3.9 instead of a 3.5 without to much extra effort

As shorttheworld said though--- things worked out in the end.

@Password-taco: you are special, bad attitude!


here is the thing... your exp will shape you and change you... you may fall in love with your job and never want to or need to go to b school.. and who knows who will be in top 5 in 5 years.. we have a good clue but who knows.. also dont try to game what your going to be doing in 5 years.. just live and see what happens...

what i would of done different? drank more, slept less,


There is so much wasted time in undergrad..in life in general. If you don't waste time, then getting that 3.9 GPA and getting wasted 3-4 times a week can easily become a reality.
