I am younger than most of the other MBA students, but they have always made me feel comfortable and I rarely feel that they look down upon me because of my relative lack of age, experience, or marital status. In fact some of them have been very welcoming. I would’ve never expected that one of my best friends in the program would be a married Mormon guy in his late 20’s with a kid, but that is indeed the case. In fact, he seriously rocks at karaoke. I met a lot of different people in undergrad and from the work and life experience that I do have, but the Broad MBA program at State has exposed me to a lot of great people that I’m really glad I’ve had the chance to get to know.
