I was not sure whether attending business school was the right next step for me until I entered Gallagher Hall the first time for a class visit. Meeting all these bright and wonderful people and experiencing the great community made me want to start with the program right away. Today, I still feel glad that I got the chance to become a part of this community and to earn my MBA from this amazing school.
