What about the Rice MBA program has surprised you the most?
I really have enjoyed getting to know my classmates.

What has been your favorite moment of your Rice MBA experience so far?
One of my favorite moments was during winter break when all the people who were recruiting for consulting internships met every day to do case prep. Not the most enjoyable thing to do over winter break, but it was a great time studying with my classmates.

What is your favorite thing about and/or favorite spot in Houston?
I am a big fan of the food scene in Houston.

In a sentence, what is the one piece of advice you have for prospective students?
If you want to go into consulting start your case preparation early.
