Going. No point putting off another year. We all thought this would be over a long time ago yet here we are. I'd rather wear a mask, manage my social scene better and be sensible about activities than trust the rest of the public to make next year better.

I said this in another post, but I imagine the academic calendar will be slightly altered because of covid - similar to how it was last year. For example, in person classes ended before thanksgiving so schools avoided students going home for thanksgiving, coming back to campus, going home for Xmas, coming back, etc. But we will see...

HSW admit - and they’ve made it clear deferring because of CoVid/ hybrid is not an option as you applied knowing it would be a possibility. So you’d need a pretty good reason, that wasn’t this, to defer

Thank you!

What about those with kids? Kids under 12 are yet to get vaccinated. Will you consider putting off to let things get better or at least wait for vax for little kid?

Ah i misread the question - makes sense!

If you’re vaccinated, you’re not immunocompromised, and the same goes for close family/friends, then there’s no good reason to alter your lifestyle at all

Does the EMBA have the same faang/MBB recruitment access and weight as full time?
