Advice Needed from my Stanford Classmates
basically..my ops stuff is gone b/c that ain't me..so stop being a bag lady and jettison some stuff
hope you and tracy are ok
Sounds like you're back to the US now. Doh! Didn't get a chance to reach out to you and Tracy again for a farewell party in Shanghai!
Since I graduated, I never referred to my GSB notes/books once. This was partially because I left all my GSB stuff at home in San Jose and moved to DC to work so it wasn't practical to check my notes remotely. When I did need help (and I did multiple times), I just called the professors up. e.g., I had called Kumar once to get the Ops formula. I called Huang once to clarify some Finance ideas.
So this year, when someone at BCG is going to the GSB (class of 08), I asked her to go to my house in San Jose and take EVERYTHING away. Find what she could use and do whatever she wanted with the rest of it. It was like a treasure hunt. If there's one textbook that she could use (somehow the professor had not changed the version or would be ok with the old version), she would score a $100+ savings which would make all the effort worth it. Plus she had helped my Mom clean up the mess in our garage.
