Am I really F*!##@d up [#permalink] New post 07 Feb 2008, 18:59
Now that the essays are done and dusted and I have no more apps to do, I find myself missing all the essay writing/application work I did before. This is so weird. Anyone else with me on this one?

It kinda happened to me as well once I finished up with Stern - I guess us IT types *could* be made to enjoy the softer skills in life.

Ask those who have no admit so far and are wondering if they would have the courage to apply next year. Ask them how much they miss essay-writing .. something that they may have to do all over again. Show offs !! :evil:

Truly, waiting is the worst part and after you submit your last app, there's nothing to do but wait.

I've got zero admits and I'm game to apply again next year. I can think of several improvements I can make in my essays.

But there are so many nice things to do while we have time for them: fill up GMATclub wiki with lots of useful information, read a good book, research your future career ways (companies, industries, countries), do some sport. I'm devoting time after admission into snowboarding, learning Spanish and looking for an apartment in AA :) And in summer there is a plan to try kitesurfing as it could be a good option for vacations.

The 3 days after I submitted Stanford's set were weird, but now I’m reading again, sleeping again (Rhyme's advice), I'm jogging, hanging-out with my friends. Putting all in short words: living again. I really don’t miss the application process, although the whole process has made me know myself at a level that I really didn’t know.

I would say you become more focused about your life and your goals :) along with the points of development you described in "My biggest weakness" essay :)

well, when I say I miss the process its not that I want to go through it again. It's just that after pouring every minute of the last few months on the process, there is a sudden emptiness in my schedule. I am not complaining. In fact, I am making up for some lost time with my family, but still sometimes I look back at the application season and fondly remember "those days". I think GMATClub is to a large extent responsible for this. Soon, the class of 2011 will run amok on this board and we 2010ers will be old news. Having spent countless hours on the board chatting with many many fellow clubbers, there is a touch of regret that we are past those us vs ad-com moments of support and camraderie.

I was lost the 1st week after my apps were all done, with too much time on my hands. Instead of getting back into old habits - I've tried to put my new found time to better use. Ie , catching up at work, volunteering, reminding friends that I'm alive and still do live in the same city, rediscovering the joy of a tall scotch on a winter evening, etc.
