The trip began with a few clicks of the snooze button after a 3:40AM alarm. Our flight left at 6 AM, and about 6 hours later we had arrived in Los Angeles and were cruising in our stylish Chevy Sonic toward the Anderson School of Management at the University of California Los Angeles. The weather was beautiful in LA and my winter jacket got buried in the back seat where it would stay for the duration of our road trip.
Our first visit with Jessica Chung, Associate Director, MBA Admissions, set our trip off to a great start. We also got to catch up with Vickie Euyoque, Associate Director, MBA Admissions, and Adrian Aguirre, Associate Director, MBA Admissions. The Anderson team gave us some great insight into life in Los Angeles, which, in addition to being the entertainment capital of the world, is also a major technology hub - booming with entrepreneurial spirit and growth that rivals Silicon Valley. In fact, last year, over 1/4 of Anderson MBA graduates went to work in technology.
