Realization Over Break — I’m Going to Business School

I always find that after classes are over, and after a few days of resting, I need to get to work and do things while I have time and can actually do them. It is during breaks from the academic workload at MIT that I think the most about life and re-evaluate things. 

This past week and a half was marked with a lot of reflection time about my life so far, the things I’ve learned, and how my perspective about everything has changed; I’ve also re-evaluated my career choice and my goals for the next few years. Although I find science and engineering appealing in theory, I must admit that have not enjoyed my engineering courses nearly as much as I’d like. I would rather study for 20 hours for my non-technical classes, or spend that time writing and re-writing a [probably non-scientific] paper, than spend 5 hours going over 2 chapters full of formulas and explanations about when to use them.

Thinking about the possibilities I have, I’ve decided that I enjoy my science & engineering classes enough to to complete my undergraduate degree in my current field, but beyond that what I really want is to pursue a business career. I like my current research and I’m planning to keep doing it until I graduate, but  what I want to do after graduation (and after working for a few years) is to go to business school — so now it’s time to work for that goal and hope for the best.

  1. i had this realization recently too – that while science is interesting, spending hours in a lab every day bored me to no end, and i'd rather be working on the high-level aspects of problems. i still don't know what i'm doing with my life, though… :
