In the Spotlight: Recruiting

After spending four years in finance first in M&A and then in private equity, I was pretty confident that “trying something new” this past summer would have been next to impossible. This was confirmed when I couldn’t even get an interview with non-profits! However, I discovered a little known and little discussed secret; there are…

They Said What?

This issue of They Said What? features a medley from Professor Richard Tedlow, the HBS resident expert on the history of business. All quotes this issue come from EC courses, indicating that the first years need to start paying enough attention in class to catch those humorous comments between naps!

Section NE

Big-E kicked off last weekend with an unbeatable showing of support for our HBS Show participants. But the solidarity of the group was compromised 24 hours later when, much to the chagrin of wives and girlfriends across Cambridge, the men of the section went on some sort of field trip to Canada. Apparently it had…

I am not sure if we are on Casino Trek II, III, IV or more, but Barry Hytinen led a few more of his fearless gamers to Las Vegas over the long weekend. I pried for the down-low on the evening activities, but didn’t get very far. The party line is that it was pretty…

Section Love

I’m all for making new friends. But I wasn’t too sure how the whole section thing would work out. Before coming to HBS, I kept hearing how my section-mates would be “my best friends for life.” As someone who holds her best friends to pretty high standards, I was dubious. Who would these people be?…

Baseball Bargaining

Anybody wonder how much money our Kansas City Zephyrs lost last year? If one believes the (unaudited) financial statements presented by Major League Baseball to the U.S. Congress in December, our beloved FRC Zephyrs probably lost their shirts… and their cleats too. League Commissioner Bud Selig testified to Congress that the sport’s 30 teams lost…

The Harbus Intraview with David Schlendorf and Sue Choe

New York, New York, Ole!by Sue Choe (NJ) Despite my other dating fiascos, I have always had surprisingly good luck with blind dates.

The Intraview's Post Game Interview

Me ‘n’ Her AuntieGoldie: OK, this is more of a comment than a question.

Zibby Joins Job-Search

What do I want to be when I grow up? Good question. It’s a question I’ve struggled with since I was a mere toddler. I’ve gone from wanting to be a writer, to a teacher, to Madonna, to a psychologist, to a brand manager, and back to being a writer. But what I’ve always believed…

No Name. No Address. Just Fate

New York movies are back in vogue, with the Twin Towers carefully edited out of shots of the Manhattan skyline; and romantic comedies simply have a universal appeal to them.

Moving On

I lost my best friend last week in the World Trade Center incident. Although I’m trying very hard to make my life go “back to normal,” I’m slowly realizing that this may be one goal that’s just unattainable, even for a first-year HBS student. Stacey and I met the first day of college and became…
