14 reminders of the struggles of b-school

Whenever I see my previous work colleagues, they tell me how envious they are that I get to go on a year off from the pressures of a job. I often get comments that I look slimmer and better, to which I respond with “Thanks, I simply don’t have the money to eat out anymore.” Yes, going back to school is exciting and fun! But graduate studies is not a vacation… and these MBA students amusingly captured the different struggles we face every day.

1. We often wonder how to survive on allowance.
