Life as a Tbird

I’m not sure how many of you are familiar with my school. I am a first trimester student at Thunderbird, the Garvin School of International Business. We’ve been in classes for 2 weeks now, and already, people are going insane from the stress. This coming week, we have a Data Analysis Assignment and a group project for Strategy due. We also have an Accounting midterm. Those no on the language track have an additional group project for Marketing. I know grad school is tough, and fully expected to be worked to the bone. It’s just that after being in the work force for a 5 years, you forget how much work school actually is.
I think what makes it the most difficult is that our groups are assigned by the professors, and they are always a mix of many different countries of origin. The difficulty is that many of our group members have English as a second language, and aren’t exactly fluent. They are shy about contributing, and when they submit their part of the project, it often times has to be rewritten by a native English speaker. It’s really frustrating for both parties. But I guess that’s what they’re trying to teach us here.
On a happier note, tonight a group of friends and I are going to see Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Comedy Show at the Celebrity Theater in downtown Phoenix. So if you’re going too, see you there!
