I basically stopped having a life. Several weekends, about 4 hours everyday after work, lunch breaks, on flights. It was largely due to my work schedule. I have a bunch of trials and transactions coming up in the new year and I was out for a couple of weeks for union business when half the applications were due. I knew that I had a limited timeframe so I basically just got through it.

Congratulations on your Kellog admit! My favourite outside counsel's son is going to be your classmate if you decide to go.

are you a lawyer going into business? I have heard the life style of trial lawyers, hats-off to you gals!
congrats to your Ross admit too! Kellogg and Ross are very similar in cultures and I am sure we will both have a great time attending them! :)

Re: Calling all Female MBA Applicants [#permalink] New post 18 Jan 2010, 13:00
well, I've looked at what's available online so far. Since mine is only 2 (3 by matriculation), it's probably a bit easier to find a daycare, than it would be for school. I am not applying to any of the daycares until I know whether I am admitted, and ideally, I would try to find an at-home daycare. Or maybe meet a wife of a fellow student who is staying at home with a child and would like to make extra income :-)

The wait period for some of the good daycares can be quite long, up to 18 months (there's hope for 2nd year in the program lol), but I don't think it's worth stressing about until the admissions decision.

Mine will be 3 too which I guess is easier than finding care for an infant but I have heard that the daycare lists are really long too. The bigger problem is enrolling the 5 year old in school...I called some of the work/life offices at some of the places I was applying to and they seemed to act like that would be a huge big deal and kind of problematic--it sounds like it will be hard to get him into kindergarten than it will for me to get into business school!
