Entry: Dartmouth Saturday, July 18, 2009



Dartmouth

So I went to Dartmouth for Tuck Business Bridge.

Dartmouth

I went in with the low, low expectation of just to meet people and to be inspired by them.

And that I did lah. They people there very cool one! Especially the internationals. We had our Chinese-speaking bunch which included students from Kenya and Louisiana :)

Dartmouth

Tuck was intense. They tried to cram like a semester's worth of work into four weeks -- accounting, finance, economics, marketing, strategy. We had 6 hours of classes per day, and lots of homework for after.

But sometime around my second week I realized that as crazy as Tuck was, Swarthmore is crazier. ;) Serious.

This is the Dartmouth Green, which is the "social heart of the college."

Dartmouth is very pretty.

But Swarthmore is prettier :)

Dartmouth

My favourite part of Dartmouth is the Connecticut River, which separates New Hampshire from Vermont. It is but a five-minute walk from Tuck, and has canoe and kayak rentals for only USD 10 per hour!

<3

Kayaking (which I did only on my last day at Tuck) is much better, much easier to maneuver, and more of a balanced work out.

No pictures though. Which is one of my biggest regrets from Dartmouth. I was afraid that I'd either drop it into the river or capsize my boat, thus dropping it into the river. :(

Dartmouth

All in all, the most salient take-away, for me, was an appreciation of the importance of accounting as the basis for finance.

A = L + E!!!

Whereas before I would subconsciously skim through news about the business world, now I find myself able to digest and understand corporate jargon.

Quite exhilarating, but also quite saddening, as people have observed: I'm selling out... or am I?

One of the most fulfilling activities was a company valuation of Domino's Pizza, and a subsequent presentation to "investors" from JP Morgan. I was struck by how much I was actually enjoying firstly knowing stuff about the company and the industry (after doing so much research) and secondly being able to articulate recommendations to investors. Might've been the novelty of it all.

I took the BBO thing online for McK--it was pretty interesting, but retention leaves something to be desired when you cram a huge amount of info into such a short time.

The shoe's designers made a smart decision by offsetting the shoe's two main colors with varsity red on the tongue and on the Jumpman logo.
