Hi! So you know whose perspective you're reading from, I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Victoria, I grew up in Massachusetts and lived in Michigan for three years after graduating from college. My family has been in the US kind of forever and I am fluent only in English. For my undergraduate degree I studied architecture at MIT. After college, in Michigan, I worked at an architecture firm reviewing in-house drawings, and information sent to us by consultants, and then I worked at a class III medical device company in their manufacturing engineering department. There, I performed process qualifications and improvements, and did lots of technical writing as well.
I found out about LGO from an email. It was not sent to my MIT one and I had taken the GRE while I was in college, so I don't know how or why I got it at the time, but it turned out to be very fortuitous. Here I am today. In the fall, I will write more about the admissions process so that future classes can receive the information when they're thinking about it the most - application time!
My interests lie in both product design and supply chain management and I will be choosing either a ESD or ME track for my engineering masters. Hopefully this blog will prove useful and interesting and at least something in it will resonate with you.
Now...on with the program!
