Welcome the New Accepted–Admit Day!!

Two years ago I stepped into Gallagher Hall for the second time.  The first time was for an interview – I was nervous, anxious, and stressed all at once.  The second time, however, was a far more pleasant experience.  It was Admit Day, and I was excited to truly see what the GSM was all about.  I met current students, got a tour of the Mondavi Center, and was introduced to several faculty members I still keep in touch in with today.  It was a positive experience that led to a signed letter of intent.

All candidates admitted to the MBA program at UC Davis are invited to attend Admit Day.  This event is dedicated to exposing new admits to the GSM culture.  Whether it’s through the campus tour, the student panel, the faculty lecture, or the wine and cocktail reception, admits are shown the close knit and collaborative community that truly differentiates the GSM from other MBA programs.

This year I had the opportunity to help organize Admit Day, along with my fellow student ambassador Wataru.  Over twenty percent (!) of our entire program volunteered their time to talk with admits, who appreciated the personal touch of having plenty of current students to have 1:1 conversations with.  We greatly enjoyed hosting the admits, as we formed good relationships with potential classmates for next year.
