the trials and tribs of an MBA hopeful!

Come join me in coffee shops, hiding in conference rooms at work, and generally giving up my entire social life as I work on my MBA applications!

Life in the waiting zone

I think when you go through the b-school process, you get to know yourself a little better. You realize the events in your life are somehow connected through a theme, and you have accomplished a lot in little time. You realize how important your friends, family, etc are b/c you have cut them off while trying to finish pages and pages of apps.

In my case, i have realized that i am IMPATIENT!!! Let's take kellogg as a good example. They are releasing rolling decisions - awesome for those who hear early, a case of mental distress for the rest of us. Come visit a day in the life of mba babe:

8am: check kellogg status online
8:02am: check BW forums to see if anyone is hearing today
8:05am: look at admissions 411 to see how many people have heard. sometimes actually count how many and calculate a percentage. (oh yes, i have become that person)
8:10am: check blogs (this makes me happy - so much good news out there recently!)

Rinse, and Repeat.

Ah, what a life! :)

And u dont work from home anymore :)

I dint become that person at any stage. I started feeling tensed and concerned abt the Chicago result on 19th morning (after i knew some Indians got calls), and i heard from Chicago in the same evening.

I hope u hear from the schools pretty soon and come out of this vicious cycle.
