We had our first real snow over the weekend! You would never know because it's almost 60 degrees outside (the weather in DC this year has been really wacky). A lot of my classmates who have never experienced snow were really excited about it, but since I wanted to drive to Philadelphia to see my parents, I was not! One of the great things about DC is how centrally located it is. It's so easy to get to all of the major East Coast cities - Philadelphia, NYC, Atlanta, Boston. Lots of great weekend destinations!
This week is extremely busy again - I have my first interview scheduled on Friday morning (exciting!!!) and I'm spending a lot of time in the Career Services office doing mock interviews with the career coaches and peer advisers. There's a career coach for each industry and I think I met with almost all of them while I was exploring careers this fall. The peer advisers are all second years who have successfully survived the internship interview process and actual internships. They have a lot of really helpful, practical advice to give.
Other big events this week:
Chinese New Year - Our Chinese students threw a huge party in one of the event spaces in our building with tons of food and fun!
This Friday is also Entrepreneurship Day (a HUGE event on campus) and the beginning of Welcome Weekend for admitted students. Welcome Weekend is an amazing event that the Full-Time Admissions Staff plans for admitted students after each round of applications. There's lots of time to meet with current students, professors and other prospective students to get a real idea of what life is like at Georgetown. I'm especially excited for it because I get to attend most of the events as a Student Recruiter. I attended the first Welcome Weekend last year and was ready to hand over my deposit at the end - it was that much fun. I'd definitely recommend all of you to attend if you have the chance.
Okay, I'm off to Corporate Finance now with Professor Comer. I'll let you know how the interview goes - keep your fingers crossed for me!
