The agony of defeat

Well, maybe not agony, but at least a dull throb…

The weekend didn’t go as planned. That happens sometimes.

We were unsuccessful in our bid to become the VCIC champions. We tried a risky strategy that didn’t work out for us, but we believed in our approach and stand by it.

I have a midterm due on Tuesday, so I don’t have a lot of time to write about the competition. I’ll post my thoughts later in the week. Big props go out to MIT for pulling off the big win for my home state of Massachusetts. They had a great team.

Needless to say, we were disappointed in the outcome, but not in the overall process. This was the highlight of my business school experience and one of the highlights of my life. I have never worked so hard at anything before, and it all paid off. We were the first team of part-time students to ever make it to the VCIC finals. What an incredible thrill!
