Aaudetat's Guide to Applying and Being in B-School [#permalink] New post 08 Jan 2008, 09:04
This was part of a long discussion in the B-School Life forum, but I liked her "quick and dirty" tips so much I had to post them here to inspire us applicants. There will be some/many who do not agree with it, but I personally think it's golden!

108-t53769?&start=40

Thanks AAu! :)


AAu's guide to applying b-school:

Come up with places you like. Don't worry about the rankings. You'll get to where you need to go.
Shoot off a bunch of essays in 4 weeks. Recycle as much material as possible.
Don't worry about visiting, etc. You know what you need - you'll get the info from the web.
Don't practice for interviews. Read one of those books and make notes in the margins. You know who you are.
Above all, don't do a NPV calculation. Life's a journey. It's about so much more than money.

AAu's guide to being in b-school:

Do well in some classes. Don't worry about a few. Ace a few too.
Recruiting's all well and good, but don't let it stress you out.
Schoozing to get by is lame. If you like someone, reach out to them.
There are lots of jobs out there. You'll get one.
Embrace the hard stuff. If it weren't hard, it wouldn't be worth it.
Make friends. With the i-bankers, the marketers, the int'ls, and anyone else.
Above all, love your section.

Wow! Good comments, which I am willing to bet will never be found in any MBA application related books. This really is good stuff that can make you believe that normal, ordinary people can get MBAs too.

Kryzak -

I was searching for another post and found this! Now, however many months later, I still like that advice. And it really brings me back to where I was before, as an FY MBA. Thanks, buddy.

Wow, fond memories! Just read it again and still agree (now that I'm a second year student, scary!). :)

Thanks Aau, hope all is well in your new job!
