Escape to New York

“How was I assigned this particular section?” “If a cranberry bounces while TOM students are occupied with Shad exercises, is it really bouncing?” “Why must HBS blondes (especially the fake ones) do everything in packs of five?” Instead of wasting your time on these and other pointless RC-year ruminations, you should be sweating only one…
