Post Offer Blues?
This might be better for therapy, but WSO has given me some really good advice so fuck it:
Freshman year I had a little too much fun and landed myself a nice 2.2 GPA. I then realized I wanted to actually do something with my life and worked my ass off to get my GPA up, networked like crazy, and eventually landed myself an offer that I am super excited about at a reputable firm (REPE 50 for all the real estate hardos). Through this process, I really had to change what my priorities were, but by the end of it, I had totally transformed into a real estate hardo. I would flake on hanging out w friends/GF bc I would put off school work during the day to interview, prep for interviews, network, etc. and I couldn't really have a conversation without talking about RE or recruiting.
I am now in a place where I have accomplished the one thing I have wrapped my entire personality around (landing a solid SA gig), and I have no idea what to do. Part of me is telling me to keep grinding by staying up to date on RE news and deals my future office is doing and keeping in touch with my network. At the same time, I really want to salvage my relationships that have deteriorated through recruiting and actually have fun in college while I still can. I'm trying to find a healthy mix of both, but I am worried that if I lose too much of my competitive edge, then I will not perform as well as I would like this summer.
Has anyone else gone through this and is this common for college students? Would appreciate any advice.
