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!

i'm not lying, i just did the running man (yes, the 80s dance move) across my entire apartment. followed by a fist pump or two or three. admittedly kinda strange, but it felt so right! ;)

D-O-N-E! D-O-N-E! Yeaaaaahhhh! Submitted Stanford and Columbia this afternoon from the comfort of my couch. And my oh my, it feels just as good as i was imagining it! Freeeeeeee! ok, i'll stop...soon.

Today I submitted both Stanford and Columbia. After I heard the good word from Kellogg on Monday, I had decided not to apply to Columbia. So, last night, I was finishing up essays at my boyfriend's apt as he made me dinner for the umpteenth time in a row so I could keep plugging away. It hit me - if we are going to do this b-school thing together and make it work, it would be a lot easier for him to get a job in NY. Columbia is one of my top choices, and I'm not sure what I would do if it came down to Kellogg and Columbia. (if i could be so lucky to have options!) I just was in such a rush to be done, and this seemed like an easy way to finish even earlier.

Submitting columbia felt right today, and it didn't hurt that i was already 75% done.

And's over! Celebration dinner tonite, but the real festivities are sure to begin Friday at happy hour :)

Good job to everyone who submitted Stanford and Columbia today! Iday - make space for me in your club!!! ;)
