On collaboration and teamwork at Fletcher: The curriculum is rigorous and the key to success is often in collaboration with your peers. This initially made me nervous. I remember working on group projects as a kid and getting stuck making the diorama all by myself. It's the whole free-rider dilemma; in most times and places, collaboration is a farce. But at Fletcher it's different, because at some point in their lives, just above everyone here used to be the kid stuck making the diorama.
