A wave of prospective members of the HBS Class of 2004 will arrive on campus this Friday for Admitted Students Weekend. The weekend will provide for many the first peek behind the curtain at the place that they will call home for the next two years. As they embark on their journey towards an MBA, they leave behind them the most uncertain U.S. economic environment in a decade.
But that is no longer the Class of 2004’s problem. At least not until the Summer 2003 recruiting season begins. For the moment all they have to worry about is keeping up with the inside jokes in the Sections they visit on Friday, and not pigging on the lip-smacking Spangler pizza. They can look forward to a year of cases, balls, Section socials, spams and the opportunity to meet some of the most interesting and accomplished people in the world. Please offer them a warm andenthusiastic welcome to HBS.
