Notes: Forgot to post this a few months ago. Was hard turning down money and liked getting to know the cultures of Emory and UNC, however Duke has been my dream school since I started the MBA admissions process so I couldn't it turn down. I saw it as the opportunity to be challenged the most by my classmates and achieve the best career opportunities.
