One thing to watch for when your starting the program is the various trips that happen before the Semester Starts. This trip allows you to meet some second year students and (more importantly?) alumni/recruiters of the program. I see a lot of benefit to this because 1 of the main values in a Full-Time MBA Program is all the Networking Opportunities.
We're going to Moab, UT the 23-25 of August. Mostly I think this will be fun, but I'm hoping it really pays off in other areas as well.
