Real talk how do you adjust to the age differences in an mba? Recently started school at 25 and most of my classmates are 2-6 years older than me and sometimes it feels hard to connect - does it get easier over time? Am I imagining it? I think in undergrad since most of your friends were at the same age/period in life it was a bit easier to connect..

I see the buckets in school as less revolving around age but life stage. Single and just a few years working to people with serious partners to people with families. The first of these groups is the vast majority and intermingle a lot! I’m 28 and I have a surprising number of 25-26 YO friends :), sometimes you wouldn’t even be able to tell
