I was attempting to highlight that the b-school process has a way of bringing out both the best and worst in people. In my case, all the hard work has been worth it even if it does not end in success for me.


Saturn,

Sorry about missing your point.

About your now understood (at least by me) point, I agree. It's an intense process and it makes you take the time to assess your life so far and your future plans. I've heard about a diverse array of plans being triggered by the MBA app. process. Whether it be the 750+ GMAT scorer who ends up not applying to B-school and pursuing his lifelong passion for music full-time, to the "I'm going to the local B-school" guy who ends up going to an Elite+ school after scoring great at GMAT.

Cheers. L.

Spot on, it's from the latin Nota bene, meaning please note. I could use PS, but the meaning is slightly different even when the application is similar.

I think this thread is exactly what my experience has been like, the GMAT has pushed me to become a more dedicated student, taking extra course work and pushing harder at my job has changed my personality, as well as reflecting on my achievements, meeting other driven individuals, and interviewing at top schools. Even my boss has noticed a huge change in the way I carry myself - which led to me getting promoted.

I think overall the experience has been totally positive and I will carry lessons from it with me in whatever I do. However - I want to get an MBA, if I am not accepted I will surely be disappointed because I believe I have the talent and the ability to do very well at the programs I am applying to.

You know, it's interesting how some people are positively influenced just by applying to Business School..

If I were to analyze it, the comparison to other "Walk-on-water" type b-school candidates causes people to really work hard at what they are doing and excel at their professional and volunteer lives. Ofcourse, the personal life can take a beating in this environment!

If anyone reading this has some free time, please read "Finding Time" by Leslie Perlow. It talks about the often contentious issue of work/life balance.

I thought it might be that, just checking. It's a fairly uncommon thing to see these days, where'd you pick it up? Most people don't know it.

Rhyme,

It's a very quick read. I read it on a 3 hour flight from start to finish. It may be interesting from the point of view of understanding the different kinds of personalities that are part of every corporate dynamic. It also talks about the crazy work culture at Technology corporations.

I'm a voracious reader. I've been known to read entire grisham novels in one sitting on a flight. It'll be finished the day it gets here.

Have you read "We need managers not MBAs" ?

A couple of years ago, I started getting NB on e-mails from a Dutch guy working at a customer in Gabon. I checked the meaning, found it useful, and added it to my lexicon.

Good to Great, Jim Collins is an amazing book.. Some how while I was reading the book, I was trying to apply those principles to me..

Freakonomics is another interesting book I read.. I know its got nothing to do with MBA's here.. but a really good read

Rhyme,

How do you finish reading so fast.. You must be a good reader.. I can only read one chapter at one time!!!!
