Extracurricular Activities: I’m in a sorority, I’m in the MIT Consulting Group, the Society of Women, and I’m in Camp Kesem, which is a summer camp for children whose parents have cancer.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
The MIT Consulting Group has been huge. It’s really great to learn soft skills, get to know the group of people and do actual casework every semester. That’s been my most important extracurricular activity. My sorority has also been important. I’m living in the house this year which has made it more meaningful for me.
How competitive was it to get involved in the consulting group?
It was fairly competitive. The application process was you did a resume drop, then a behavioral interview, and then a case interview to get in.
