Revised: links to personal blogs removed as requested.
Here's the class pic of the Paris cohort. Again, the Paris picture is 100 times more professional than our hand-held Sony cybershot class photo.

Here are photos from my IMBA experience (via Facebook) broken down by the three segments of the program:

2. Mp3 player. Taking Phil's advice, I bought a small mp3 player that kept me company while in India. This also proved valuable throughout my trips in India. It's weird... but hearing familiar songs really helped with the initial home-sick feelings. I recommend the Nano.
3. Noise-canceling headphones. Mumbai's noise pollution is unbelievably high and can eventually drive a person insane. I wanted these while in India, but none were available in India at the time. These would've helped on the long plane rides and loud auto-rickshaw rides.
4. GPS device. There are a lot of times where I had no clue where in India I was or going to. I wished I had something that could've tracked where I was or going to. Mumbai (and much of India) don't have high-rise buildings, it's pretty to get a GPS signal from hand-held devices.
5. Travel boots. I brought my light-weight, waterproof, shit-stomping boots with me, and it proved it self worthy of the money. I bought a great pair from Timberland ($120).
6. Light-weight, waterproof jacket. More often than not, you'll be caught out in the rain without your umbrella. It's easier to always pack a light-jacket in your bag than remembering to bring your umbrella everywhere with you. I bought one from Columbia ($120) that was super light, waterproof, and breathable.
7. 2 pairs of sandals. One cheap rubber one and one normal/comfortable one. Use the cheap rubber sandal for the shower. The rubber ones dries faster than the leather/fabric/foam ones. After you shower, you'll want to ditch the shower sandals for your normal sandals, so you can dry your feet. You can buy cheap rubber sandals in India, but I recommend bringing your normal-wear sandals from home.
8. Travel size umbrella. I brought one from REI ($45) that is double canopy-ed but folds down to travel size. A good umbrella will save your ass big time in Mumbai, Philadelphia, Japan, and China. Don't bother bringing your big-ass golf umbrella.
9. Hand sanitizer. This is a must for India. It's not uncommon to NOT find napkins when eating out in India. Don't bother bringing the Costco size one. Bring one travel size one (size of your palm or less) that you can take with you in your bag and one backup.
10. Talcum powder. Don't underestimate India's humidity. Most of us bought Gold Bond with us. Bring the Costco size... you'll be using it.
11. Mosquito Spray. Despite the malaria paranoia, bring just ONE bottle with you. I really didn't use it (or remember to use it) all that much. I bought 5 bottles with me thinking that I would run through one per month. Didn't happen. I ended up using about 3/4 of one bottle. It's a must in Goa, for sure. I got ravaged in Goa.
