INSEAD at McKinsey

So I went last night to an INSEAD presentation featuring a staff member and various alumni currently living in my city. The presentation was held at the McKinsey office in MTL.
While I knew most of what was discussed from reading the literature and the website, it was very enjoyable to interact directly with people who had gone through the experience.
1 thing that I had never considered was the need for a car at the Fontainebleau campus. I hate driving with a passion and to envision doing so in France and to pay European gas prices has increased my blood pressure tremendously. Consequently, I am more open towards the Singapore locale.

Wow, I just found out a friend from high school got kidnapped back home in Haiti. Thankfully, he was released after his parents gave a ransom. Kidnappings have been occurring on a daily basis. Who is to blame? The economical conditions? The collapse of a nation? Greed? I don't know.
I just know that to live in a country where one is virtually jailed is not what my ancestors fought 201 years ago.

studying for the GMAT in the summer

This is so hard, especially when it’s so hot outside. I wonder if California and Florida residents have on average lower scores than East Coast residents.

My brain stops functioning once a certain temperature is reached...
