Hello All

Hello Friends
My name is Nagraj and I am new to this forum. A little bit about myself; I am an MBA student at INSEAD and currently working out of Spain for my internship.

My Personal / Academic Background
I studied and grew up in Mumbai and obtained a B.Sc (Physics) degree from Mumbai University. I subsequently worked in a Shipping and Logistics company for 8.5 years and then decided to equip myself with an MBA.

In my 8.5 year career, I worked in India, Thailand, Singapore and frequently travelled across the globe for work. I speak 6 Indian languages and 3 foreign languages.

My electives at business school revolve around Corporate Strategy, Marketing and Finance. I guess this is good enough for starters. I am here to help other fellow members looking for guidance on GMAT, B-school admissions or for that matter a review of course packs etc. I also look forward to tapping on the reviews by other members for my benefit.

Feel free to reach out to me either on the forum or via PM.

Hi all

Hi, i am new this forum and like to post this as my introduction thread to you all. This is wonderful opportunity to share each once's idea about their graduate education. As introductory post, I like to mention that education in India started earlier ages itself and still more concepts are developed every day. i have completed my Bachelor of science in computer science in 2008 and currently working in a non voice Business process outsourcing company. every body have a static education still they complete schooling. Most of them where bookworms and they haven't go beyond the book, but regarding education in college or university, one has to keep up his life style by thinking habits. so l like this forum very much and i will share more information soon.

My name is Jamie and I will be a fourth year Physics major this coming fall semester at the State University of NY at Plattsburgh. For those of you who don't recognise Plattsburgh, its a small town up near the Canadian border. This summer I am working on my Advanced Honors Thesis and taking my Graduate Record Exam. I also work retail part-time in an assistant manager type position.

Hello Everyone

Wow, how nice to see so many members from the Philippines.  My Mom's from there, so it's part of my heritage, but I was born in the U.S.  I recently graduated from Western Kentucky University with a BA in English and Allied languages and (still) awaiting my teaching certification for high school students.  I love to write and aspire to be one of those rich, award-winning authors with the big houses out in scenic who-knows-where.  Until then, however, I just need to pay the bills, so what better way than to teach?  No luck so far, but I keep trying!

In any case, I look forward to talking to you all on the forums and sharing my little bits and pieces about my college and my professors.

Take care and God bless!

Hi Everyone

 

Hi everyone! It’s nice to see so many active members already on this website! I’d prefer to keep my real name private so everyone on here can just call me “Java.” So, I’m an English major currently attending a college in Maine. I just completed my first two semesters and loved it. I can only hope that every college freshman can have an experience that is just as amazing. I’m also in the Honors program so I got some nice perks along the way. I hope to get to know everyone a little bit better and you can all look forward to seeing me on the forums.

 

Take care!

I am a new comer on this forum and my enthusiasm is to attract  people through my writing expression.

Hello

Hello Java and welcome to the site!  It's amazing to see another couple passionate English majors here.  Sometimes it's difficult to find the ones who aspire to be writers rather than teachers.  I wonder if I'm the only one who's felt like we English people are constantly pushed towards teaching, especially by our parents.  Mine can't see anything else good about the major.

I am a writer and I write according to the facts or  figures that cover the whole aspects either positive or negative .

Objective writing

Hi, it's nice to hear that there are fellow writers out there who will not take a side and report the facts and numbers without a spin. Kudos!

Hi Becca McGilloway

That's funny people call you Becca! I know at least three Becca's now! I look forward to reading some of your posts and views. Talk to you later!

Hi Java

I understand the want to keep your name private. It's awesome that you're int he honors program! Way to go, man! I have let a few classes slide a bit further than I intended, but I have come back with straight A's in philosophy. Hope to get to know you better, you seem like an intelligent guy. Talk to you later!

Hi Java

Hi Java. I am also in the Honors Program at my school. If your program is anything like mine then you must have taken some pretty interesting seminar courses!

abnormalalien's picture

Hey

Hi Adelaide. The title of the program you took sounds pretty cool. Did you have to learn a lot of foreign languages as well as take your English courses?

JamieS86's picture

Hi!

 Hi everyone. My name's Jamie and I'm a history graduate student at the University of Arizona. I focus on nineteenth and twentieth century British history, although I have other interests as well: history of sexuality, history of medicine, world history, just to name a few.

 I was a history major as an undergrad, but I went to law school after graduating. I soon realized law was not for me and switched over to the history Master's program. I have worked as a tour guide, writer, and teacher, among other things. I think I will probably go back to teaching after grad school, although I haven't decided at what grade level yet.

 Aside from my academic interests, I like travel, comic books, and all things sci fi.

 Looking forward to talking about classes and textbooks and hearing other people's experiences.

Hi

 Hi Anna, nice to meet you. I have spent a lot of time in higher education and I think I've developed some pretty good ways to deal with stress if you'd like some advice. Feel free to send me a pm.

JamieS86's picture

Hi

 Hi Java and Abnormalalien, congrats on being in honors programs. I was in the honors college as well when I was an undergrad and those were the best classes I ever took. Any interesting seminar courses?

abnormalalien's picture

Hi Jamie

I've taken quite a few good seminars. I think my favorite Honors Seminar was learning about the history of Israel and Palestine in my course "The Case for Justice: Israel/Palestine."

Shayla Jordan

Hello,

My name is Shayla and I am currently a student at the University of Madison, Wisconsin.

I completed my undergrad at the University of Anchorage, Alaska and the University of Seattle, Washington. I started off after High School at UAA and was a double major taking on anthropology and chemistry while battling with my pre-med courses as well. The course load was quite a bit to handle but it was well worth it. After about two years of such a rigorous course load I transferred to the University of Washington in Seattle and took an intro. course to psychology for the experience. I ended up loving it and dropped anthropology for psychology.

I am currently in my third year of Medical School and am working steadily toward a Ph.D in psychology and an M.D. majoring in chemistry.

Hi Java

Congrats on the honors program. When I was in undergrad at UAA I was in honors program and loved it. It provided me with some very interesting and informational courses.

Hello Nagraj

Last year I took a vacation to Spain and absolutely loved it. It made me think back to when I was starting off Med. School and I was considering a study abroad program centered out of Spain and decided to go with Florence, Italy instead. To this day I wish I had gone to Spain instead.

Introduce yourself

Hello, 

My name is Disha and I am currently a senior in high school. I am applying to colleges this fall, but am not fully decided on what I want to major in. I enjoy math and science, but not history so much. I am looking forward to making friends on here and getting some feedback on which majors I should and shouldn't consider. My brother is a junior in college and he attends Northwestern University. He is helping me through the application process but I would like some feedback on here as well!
