Why Wisconsin? Then and Now
For anyone who knows me, when it comes to making big decisions I am thoughtful and analytical, sometimes to a fault. I like to thoroughly research my options, write pro/con lists and talk things out to make informed decisions. When it came time to decide where I should pursue my MBA, it was no different. Now that I am halfway done with my second year of the program, I want to revisit my top 5 reasons for choosing Wisconsin.
My top five reasons I chose Wisconsin remain true and have taken on a whole new meaning since stepping on campus for first-year orientation. However, I would like to make an amendment to my list.
My 6th reason for choosing Wisconsin is the people – both current students and alumni. I know it is cliché, but I have made so many wonderful friends in the program that will be friends for life. Wisconsin alumni are passionate people who are always willing to help. I have connected with tons of alumni informally, spoken to my formal Brand Center alumni mentor about career paths and full-time decisions, and walked into my day one of my internship knowing the Badgers were all rooting for me.
I think it is safe to say I made the right decision.
