What surprised you most about Marshall?
I was surprised by how caring and helpful alumni are towards current students. The alumni I connected with as a prospective student followed up with me during the application process and were excited to welcome me to the Marshall family. The second year students are generous with their time and provide so much wealth of knowledge on how to navigate the recruiting process.

What do you wish you'd known before attending business school?
The first semester goes by so quickly! A "must do" list of activities, clubs, competitions will help you stay focused on the opportunities that are most exciting to you. I would like to add a quick plug for the Consortium, Management Leadership for Tomorrow, MBA Prep, and the Toigo Foundation. If you are a diverse candidate, please check those organizations out before you apply to business school.

Co-Director of Marshall MBA Ambassadors; AVP of Forward Summit - Latino Business Management Association
