Partner Perspective: Welcome Back!

Welcome back, everyone! I hope everyone survived interviews, is getting back in the swing of things, and hasn’t started to suffer from post-Field depression yet. I imagine it must be hard to get back into class mode after those tequila treks to Costa Rica and jet lagged jaunts to Asia. As possibly one of the…
