It’s (half-way) Over!

This time of year, it’s easy to stumble upon college students at any level writing about how they can’t believe the semester is over.  Add me to the cliche clique.  These past nine months have flown by.  It’s been a non-stop ride, but I’ve learned a lot and met a bunch of great people.  I’ve built a financial model for a real estate deal, put together a marketing project for an NBA team and been a part of about nine groups.  It’s been awesome.

As the summer air creeps across New Orleans, my classmates are fanning out across the country for internships.  It’s a little sad to see us all leave the nest, but a good bit of non-natives are staying here in New Orleans, which surprises me.  I’ve got a few options, and my summer plans aren’t set.  I know if I stay or go – any internship will be a great chance to put our Tulane skills to work.

A year ago, I was preparing to move to New Orleans to start the Freeman School’s summer program.  I had been out of school for a few years, and my math background was not strong.  If you fit that category – I’d definitely come to Tulane early.  Not only do you get a head-start at meeting your new classmates, but the statistics and accounting help goes a long way once school gears up in August.  If you have any questions about the summer program, ask away.  Also – throughout the summer we’ll have guest bloggers tell us about what they’re doing this summer.
