I am one 5 hour exam away from FREEDOM! I can hardly contain myself! Do you remember when I said in Q1 that I wish all the exams were in one week? I retract that statement. This has been HELL! It isn't that the exams are overly hard, although I have had a few WTF moments, but spending 5 hours a day, every day, on a different test is taxing. Of course, it doesn't help that on the horizon is a couple well deserved weeks off. Granted, I complain now, but the scary part is, I am 5 hours away from finishing 25% of my business school tenure. WOW!

Truth is, all I want is to be able to sleep in tomorrow. It's been raining cats and dogs all day and over the last few days, it's been cloudy. That just screams lay on the couch and drink cocoa! Maybe Saturday before I head to DC. On that note, I'm going to crawl in bed and watch a flick on the computer before we go celebrate ECC's birthday with dinner!

Hang in there. Q3 onwards you wouldn't care less how and when the exams are. Second year you don't even what exams mean anymore!
have a good break

Two things:

It sounds like you have a lot of pressure on you, but how much do the tests count for in your grades? Isn't Darden more focused on case work?

Second, you should check out the new visitor center at the capitol. It is really quite amazing. I was just out there (I live in the Midwest) last weekend and it was great!

@V2B-School - Thanks appreciate the support!

@Anand - I know it gets better, but for the moment, it's true Darden. ;)

@TheCakeScraps - The exams are cases. It's basically one long complicated case that counts for anywhere from 45-65% of your grade.

And thanks for the tip. Will definitely hit up the visitor center.
