For those of you who attended a FT MBA program, what did you do when you were not in the classroom? Besides traveling, partying, studying/homework, interviewing, etc. Were you often attending events to network, getting lunch with faculty, enjoying a hobby, something else? Thanks! *Repost*

Recruiting events (tons), social activities (happy hours, birthday parties), extracurriculars (rugby, consulting club), case prep for interviews, speaker events, etc… As a side note, I’ve been in consulting for six years, and I’ve never been as busy or as overbooked as Sep-Jan first year of my MBA. But in general, it’s very much what you make of it. At Chicago Booth, they had this concept of the “silent 200”— approximately 200 people in every year that never really engage in the social activities, and when they show up at graduation, people ask, “wait, who are you?”

Well in the first instance build and / or maintain personal relationships (in my case with my wife, parents, etc.) Then get some exercise, chill out, find some time to sleep Also didn’t you list so many things already - what exactly are you getting to- just trying to understand what exactly do you want to know?
