FROM Farhanc85: Why do MBA Applicants help each other?????
Yesterday night I was having an interesting discussion with "The Wife". The discussion revolved around GMAT takers and MBA applicants. She asked me "Why do people competing against each other, help each other?" Honestly, I have never thought about it after our chat and my reasons for her which were not so compelling I went here. This webpage talks about basic reasons why people help each other and it absolutely fits the GMAT journey. 
My two cents: People generally are shy to ask for help. Online communities, forums and groups give a sense of belonging.  of us are in the same boat we connect to each other on a level where we are experiencing somewhat similar difficulties, emotions and trepidation.GMAT being the first obstacle, the goal is to overcome our fears, why would we want to discuss our fears with someone else? Doesn't that leave us vulnerable? Can the individual at the other end of the wire take advantage of your situation to boggle you? There are cases where people try this, but those are rare. A person deciding to do an MBA is doing so for various reasons, although we don't realize and some people might argue that it's not always the case but development is always an inherent need to leap towards an MBA. More money- Financial Development, Change in function, industry or location: Development to enhance our horizons. When a person wants his or her development inherently he/she starts to help others. Why? To learn more from life. This is turning out to be one of those long posts with gyaan but stay with me. To develop is to grow or to cause to grow. When you help others in whatever you can, you help them grow. This in turn helps you grow by finding ways to help others, feeling of accomplishment, gathering more knowledge and living through others experiences. 

Yesterday after I disclosed my fears for mocks to one of my online groups, I received replies with personal stories, suggestions and some recipes to overcome this. After my post there were several others who started asking questions related to their journey. The first step where you ask for help is extremely important. I am not a propagator of selflessness, neither do I believe in objectivism.Whatever motives people have this sharing of ideas, fears, knowledge, information and imparting wisdom through ones experience is what makes a community a brilliant place for interaction. To all my GMAT friends, keep rocking guys. MBA's or not we are already in the space where we identify the scope of improvement and I am sure we will work towards it. 

Till Then......

FROM The adventures of a (provisional) MBA student: Pre-MBA: The fun begins
I was aware ‘professional London’ is a pretty multicultural community, but the last few months have really made me realise how much.

With just over a month to go before we start arriving on campus for registration, fellow HBS ‘admits’ have started to leave on last minute trips abroad – holidays, or more often, trips home to family.

Our group in London contains a surprisingly (at least for me) few Brits in our group, and is already a wonderfully diverse group. I think I’ve counted a few more British candidates coming from other international cities as well, rather than from the UK.

This has been gathered from our own small group of the incoming ‘Class of 2016′ – every couple of weeks during the spring there has been a small get together or event somewhere in London, and there’s been a steady stream of people to meet, especially as the later rounds of admissons get their decisions and join in. I think it’s possibly the first really useful outcome from Facebook I’ve yet been involved in…

Image
Our group’s latest drinking spot, a nice way to say goodbye as a group to London

Professionally, the group is rather less diverse (unsurprisingly in London, as the dominant industries – finance and consulting - dominate) but this is more than made up from a real mix of experiences and personal interests once you get past the stock ‘so, what do you do?’ question.

It’s been a thoroughly enjoyable spring, enough to concern me that all this MBA nonsense is going to get in the way too much of having a good time (but I suspect not)! Cheers to the HBS London bunch, can’t wait to see you all in Boston!

FROM LTN99: THE FOUR STAGES OF LEARNING!
The four stages of learning -

1) Unconscious incompetence.

2) Conscious incompetence.

3) Conscious competence.

4) Unconscious competence.

For all those non rocket scientists, like me, who do not score a 770  in their first tries, this a reminder to keep practicing for the GMAT till you go from "HUH??" To "CRAP!! I REALLY SUCK AT THIS" To "IF I CONCENTRATE REAL HARD I CAN DO THIS" To "TALENT!!!"

FROM MBA Reapplicant: Recent Updates - Baby, Housing, Laptop, and Some Other Stuff
Image

It’s crazy how fast time flies.  There are still a ton of things I would like to get done before classes start in September.  However, the past month or so has been packed with putting my house on the market and everything that goes along with that, winding down at work, handing off projects, training new hires and interns, etc., oh ya, and my wife and I welcomed a new baby boy.  That’s boy number three for us!  So needless to say, things have been crazy.

In spite of all that is going on, I have been able to cross off a few essential items off my pre-MBA checklist.  I purchased my laptop for school.  I decided to go with the MacBook Air.  For those that are considering a Mac, Apple is offering a $100 gift card to those that purchase one now.  Although this wasn’t on my checklist of things to do, I decided to buy and iPad Mini with the gift card I got from Clear Admit for winning the Best of Blogging.  Thanks Clear Admit!

In the past month we have been able to get our house under contract too!  As long as things go as planned, we should close just a couple days before we are able to move into our place in LA.  Which brings me to my next checklist item, finding a place to live.  We were lucky enough to get into graduate student family housing in LA.  I am very glad, because we needed a 3-bedroom, and anything near campus that wasn’t university owned was about twice the price.  Also, the elementary school my oldest son will be going to has great ratings, so that is a huge plus.

There are several other things on my list that I am currently working.  Unfortunately, a lot is getting pushed back because we have been busy packing and cleaning up our house.  I am currently reading a couple great books.  Quiet, by Susan Cain, and The Start-up of You, by LinkedIn co-founder, Reid Hoffman.  I have also been working on learning some coding.  I started taking the HarvardX CS50x: Intro to Computer Science.  I have also been playing around quite a bit on Code Academy.  If anyone has any other good learning sources, please share.  Although things have been busy this past month, we will be heading down to LA almost a month and a half before I start classes.  So, that should give me plenty of time to finish things up, and be ready to hit the ground running!

FROM TexasWannaBeCali: MBA Admissions Advice: Getting the Behind the Scenes Info
Image

Now that I’ve narrowed down my school selection (see: The Decision) I’ve decided to shift my focus to generating essay ideas while I continue to study for the oh so lovely GMAT. Common themes that I’ve noticed schools ask you to write about have been: short term and long term goals, and most importantly how an MBA from a given program help achieve those goals. An important tip for tackling this type of essay question is using information that goes beyond the school website so my goal for the rest of this month is to gather as much information as I can about the programs I’m applying to and in August start contacting current students and alumni as well as looking for information sessions to attend. If you’re not sure of the essays required for your target schools, GrantMeAdmission has a great comprehensive post for most ranked programs as well as analyses by top consulting firms.

Alumni

Alumni, in my opinion, are the best resource for finding out all that a MBA program has to offer in terms of achieving post MBA career goals. There’s no better advice than from people who have been where you’re trying to get to. I would consider myself to be a rather outgoing and confident person, but in situations like this, at times, I can feel intimidated about expressing my thoughts and ideas to a total stranger because I don’t want to seem dumb or like I’m wasting their time. But I know I would only be hurting myself if I didn’t reach out.

Alumni working in your target post-MBA industry can be especially useful. Websites like LinkedIn are a great place to start in stalking these people. Picking their brains about how a school’s courses, clubs, and career services helped direct them to their desired professional choice is essential essay material as well as noteworthy for conducting your own path to your short term and eventually long term goals.

Current Students

People currently enrolled in a given program are another vital resource for gaining information as they can provide the freshest picture about what’s going on in the program and will more than likely be excited to elaborate on academic and extra curricular experiences they’ve encountered thus far and plan to in the future. Current students, especially those going into their 2nd year this fall, can provide insight of what to expect when attending business school and can offer tips on things they would’ve done differently in the application process and even during their first year. They can also easily be found on LinkedIn, as well as MBA students blogs and the contact page information for leaders of clubs and programs you’re interested in.

Attending On Campus or Off Campus Visits, Coffee Meet and Greets, and MBA Tours

These events are great for being able to speak with adcoms, alumni, current and prospective students all at once. They’re also a great opportunity to tour the campus and surrounding areas and sit in on classes if you are fortunate enough to visit while school is in session. To make the most of these events, it’s important to:

1. Research Research Research

- Don’t you just hate the person that asks the question in class that the teacher LITERALLY just stated the answer to 3 seconds ago.. Yeah don’t be that person. Know as much accessible information about a program beforehand so when the opportunity arises to ask questions, you can focus on the ones relevant to your goals and interests rather than information that can be easily found on the school’s website. It also never hurts to look like an overachiever and express your keen interest in attending a given program. The more excited you are, the more excited people will be in sharing information with you.

2. Know your goals

- This kind of goes in line with #1. Being able to express what you hope to achieve from a certain program will get you feedback on steps of how to get there and show your seriousness and maturity in being ready to apply for the upcoming MBA application season.

3. Bring your business card and updated resume

- Means for being contacted later and you might even be able to receive some immediate feedback on your competitiveness as well as areas of strengths and where improvements are needed

4. Dress to Impress

- No description necessary.

This list is certainly not the end all be all. If you have other tips or recommendations for preparing for information sessions, please share in the comments. In the meantime, I plan on gathering as much information as possible for the rest of July and starting in August, going full stalker mode and emailing the following people like crazy:

- Those working/interning in the pharma/biotech industry

- MBAs with a healthcare concentration

- MBA/MPH (Master of Public Health) dual degree students/alumni

- Younger applicants

- Younger applicants in the healthcare concentration

- Those who applied through the Consortium

- Duke and Texas alum who found opportunities in California

I’ll be sure to share the feedback I receive with you guys.

Also, I came across two pieces of information on Clear Admit’s website called “School Guides” and “School Selection Guides”. The “School Guides” are downloadable comprehensive profiles for each MBA program and the “School Selection Guides” analyze school specific opportunities for gaining experience in certain career tracks. Has anyone purchased these guides, or anything similar? I’m all for knowing as much as possible, but I couldn’t find any reviews of how useful the products are. I’m moreso interested in purchasing the Healthcare school selection guide. Thoughts anyone?

With deadlines coming up, I hope I can start posting more frequently. It’s amazing how much more organized my brain gets after writing one of these. Ciao for now.

FROM Pulling That MBA Trigger: Attending a student hosted event
Erm, so after having read many, many blogs about campus visits and the like, I decided to see what events were happening off campus, since I’m definitely not going to be able to squeeze in a trip to the States any time soon. As I was randomly going through websites yesterday idly registering for a few events in different cities at that, I suddenly happened to see an event for Booth in my own city that is happening today! This is so surprising because literally, no one comes here. Also, hello destiny?! I wasn’t even considering Booth in my list and it just so happens that I see this event a day before it’s scheduled to happen… The universe is calling out to me here.

I’m not sure if I should sound perfectly convinced about applying to Booth or just wing it when I go there. It would be stupid to show up not knowing if I even want to apply but I have no choice. I don’t want to skip the event, god knows these things happen once in a blue moon. After a lot of asking and skulking around, this is a list of things I would like to achieve after having attended the event:

  • Find two or more mentors, recent graduates from the school who can guide me through the application process.
  • Identify what makes the school tick. Find out as much insider information as I possibly can, stuff that I could actually use in my essays and interviews later on.
  • Network, network, network. Find someone who works in the admissions office or knows someone who does. No admissions officer is going to be at this event, so if I could possibly be put in touch with someone, I might have an edge?
  • Ask about career prospects post MBA, especially once back in India.
Any more ideas anyone? Let me know. I’ll update once I’ve actually attended the event. Also… I don’t have any visiting cards. How am I supposed to exchange contact information? Good ol’ pen and paper? Just note email addresses down? Meh. Must invest in visiting cards.

FROM Pulling That MBA Trigger: Recap of the student hosted session: Booth
Okay, so I really want to get all of this down before I forget. So today was a very weird day, in the fact that I met so many new people and that’s something that doesn’t happen all that often. I got off work early to attend the Chicago Booth student hosted session. I still walked in to the event late though, all the other brown nosers probably camped out there a day earlier, but I digress. The student from Booth just finished her MBA this year and is now working in the healthcare industry. She basically sat down in the middle of this huge circle and began to field questions from the 40 odd people that came to the event.

First off, let me just say that people are so freaking dumb. My tolerance for stupidity is quite low and I was seriously pushed to the limit by the kind of questions people were asking. Like hello, she’s a student from Booth, not an admissions consultant! People had gems like:

  • What GMAT score do you need to get in?
  • What is the breakup of people coming from different industries?
  • What should I put on my resume?
  • Which format is better for the essay, text or a powerpoint presentation?
  • Do we hide the fact that we’re using the services of a consultant?
  • What are the different clubs on campus?
Oh. My. God. People had not done the slightest bit of homework and they were busy asking questions that a simple Google search would have answered. The student was kind enough to answer, but I could literally see her rolling her eyes each time a completely redundant question was asked. After a point, I became this annoying know-it-all and shot off answers to most questions that were being asked, simply because I had come prepared. Although I was one of the youngest ones there, I still left being extremely happy with myself because none of them seemed adequately prepared. There were also four women who attended the session out of forty people. Combine the two factors and voila, as a smart woman, I felt my chances rise exponentially.

Okay, getting down to the actual details of what she said. I found her advice to be direct and helpful and I worked hard at asking her meaningful questions if only to put her out of her misery.

  • Booth is all about giving back. The collaborative nature in Booth extends right from the classrooms to everyday life. The 2nd years help out the 1st years and the trend continues because of this tradition of giving back.
  • She also said that there is an important part of the application which asks for short term and long term goals that most people just skip (I guess it isn’t mandatory? I’m not sure). She advised us to be very wary and make sure we answered that one.
  • She said that there were people of a wide variety of ages on campus and that despite being a relatively younger MBA entrant herself, her opinions were always afforded the same level of respect.
  • She said that Booth really wants to see your personality shine through in the application. Show them who you truly are and not what you want them to see. Don’t exaggerate or blow your achievements out of proportion. Stay humble and true to yourself and let your experiences speak for themselves.
  • She said that the career services team is very helpful and that they would even connect you with local alumni and set you up with interviews if you do choose to return to your home country.
  • When I asked her about something bad about the school, she said that she wasn’t too fond of how the recruiting season started just two months after she joined the school. But she added that schools everywhere faced similar problems of being bombarded by recruitment stuff right at the beginning of business school.
  • I made sure to ask her about how Booth looks at re-applicants. She said that they do in fact look at them quite favourably and they even admit over 30% of them the second time around. You do have to show significant improvement for them to reconsider.
That’s pretty much all I remember. I will put in stuff that I forgot later on. I just realised that I didn’t even socialise with the rest of the bunch. But that’s only because I had to leave early (and because I’m a bit of an intellectual snob). Seriously people! Google before you ask. You’re giving all of us other applicants a bad rep. Finally, she gave us her card and said she would put us in touch with the right people if we had any specific questions. One guy just asked outright if she would have a look at his essays. She looked like she wished she was dead, but she did agree to it in the end. This is what is wrong with me, I really need to be more pushy. Oh well, there’s always email.

FROM Sarah's MBA Journey: Dsylexia one year on
I’ve wanted to write a post on my blog about how I’m managing my dyslexia and stress 12 months on. But I needed to wait until I had a couple of incidents to report.

I would say my dyslexia has changed. For instance I now mix up my b and d’s. I haven’t done that since I was I’m primary three. Let me tell you it’s a pain in the neck. Unfortunately it means I also need to figure out how it works.

Brain overload

I’m now also really sensitive how I take in information, it’s very easy for for me to get information overload.

This means I now need to take smaller chunks of information at a time. This means at the height of the work project I need to take brain rest more seriously; so that’s regular breaks in work and in the evening that means lots of trashy tv and books. No studying!

And this has also impacted my pace. I’m now slower at work when I’m undertaking reading heavy documents. That not always to my benefit nor my projects.

learning

I also need more than one teaching style to take in the information. So good teaching is an vitial. Unfortunately this has had an impact on me attending church. The straight forward verbal heavy talk, hurts my Brian. So I’m needing to explore other teaching styles.

I also find it more difficult to shut out multiple voices. My brain overloaded on a training course when I was getting help from one trainer and then other started to speak at the front. Before I could have tuned out the other trainer.

project work

When leading a project I need to dip in and out of tasks. I’m not as good at that any more. So I now assign whole days or whole chunks of time dedicated to admin. Admin days are helpful as it allows me to get through a number of small tasks and then allows me to concentrate on larger chunks of work during the rest of the week.

Challenge like always is balancing my strengths which is making leaps and quickly analysing written information. While being able to clearly show how I reached the conclusion and from what pieces of evidence. Always more of a challenge when I need to show evidence rather than the logic leap.

But I’m surviving. Next step thriving.

FROM TopDogMBA - A Reapplicant's Tail: Think for yourself – MIT Sloan part 2
Specific feedback from Admissions Office and a recent MIT Sloan on the Road event I attended:

  • Looking for students who “identify and solve the world’s problems”
  • If you are interested in entrepreneurship, want to spend a lot of time in the Martin Trust Center
  • What we want to see in your application in one word: IMPACT (e.g. how you made it, where you made it, when you made it)
  • New second essay is nothing to worry about (usually change something each year) – aligned with professional world i.e. 360º feedback
  • Last season approx. one-third to one-half of applicants answered (optional) third essay
  • Interview process will be the same as in 2013/14
  • Surprisingly, not that many applicants from the UK [following my prompt about being in a large competition pool]
  • Keep in touch with us before and after you submit your application → very big on this!
  • Specific advice for re-applicants:
    • be upfront about it, tell us how you have grown/changed since last time
    • pay close attention to ‘What We Look For
    • be sure to give specific and detailed examples
    • should be consistent with last time, but think around new answers and try to give a little more information
    • be sure to do the optional (third) essay – can write an essay, post a video, make a slideshow
  • We encourage re-applicants (stressed by Admissions and at the event)

FROM TopDogMBA - A Reapplicant's Tail: Getting better
So, it’s the end of another weekend and I’ve just about got my strategy and all-important short-term, medium-term and long-term goals in place.

I know I should have started writing essays by now, but I figure the goals are really the backbone of my applications. What’s more, I don’t have to do the GMAT (more on that below), I know pretty much which schools I’m applying to, plus I did it all last season so know a lot of things I didn’t know then.

Still, I’ll have to push a lot harder to make my applications as great as they can be! Fortunately I have two consultants and a bunch of focused (and shockingly honest!) students and alums to keep on my case.

Another big help has been the Twitter feeds from various b schools on my radar. I’m now retweeting the articles that have most relevance for me, the sort of stuff that makes you realise what you were put on this planet to do. That is what I want to get into my applications!

Every little tweak I make to one of my goals has a ripple effect on the others. It matters because I have a lot of work experience so my options are fewer and I need a compelling reason for the ‘Why an [full time] MBA?’, ‘Why now?’ questions. And once those are satisfied, there is the monster ‘What have you done to improve yourself since last time?’ question.

What’s more, since I took my GMAT in mid 2012, my percentile rankings have been adjusted twice. While my total score is still in the 94th percentile, my quant ranking has slipped from 78th to 74th percentile! Thankfully, everything else is above the 90th percentile. There isn’t a lot I can do about it now, but it could make or break my application given my relatively low GPA.

So many things to work into those ever-shrinking number of words left in my essays! Once more unto the breach, dear friends!

FROM LTN99: When will this day end?
It has been a rough twelve hours since I took the GMAT this afternoon and I still haven't come to terms with the fact that I ended up with a 700 - 49/35 split, which is the exact  split that I started with 6 months ago. In the past two months, I have taken the test twice, scoring a 710 the first time and a 700 the second time. My GMAT score hasn't moved in 6 months, yet I am barely 2 weeks away from submitting my first application (Columbia). My mock tests were going well too. Both times I took the actual GMAT, I scored over 730 in most Veritas practise tests that I took and even managed a 770 on my GMAT prep retake test a week before the actual test. I am not sure why my a week before my actual tests my scores plunge. 

Image

My confidence is shattered, and I see no gain in pursuing the GMAT again. My confidant believes that I just had a bad day and recommends that I take the test again and postpone my applications if necessary.

On the test, I started with some really tricky questions on the Quant section, which followed with a few extremely easy question and finally ended with really really REALLY difficult, confusing questions 
- I almost ran out of time. 

On the Verbal section, even though the questions were moderately difficult, I was able to narrow down each question to the last two answer choices. I think, I chose the wrong answer choice in each of those questions. That is exactly where my GMAT killed me. I was unable to differentiate the right from the wrong. 
- I completed the section on time. 

I have been recommended two other things now-
1) Opt for a strict Verbal course - Magoosh or E-GMAT. 
2) Evaluate every single question that I do, whether its correct or wrong - I was previously analysing questions I made mistakes on. 

I will be exploring these newer verbal courses with my Veritas course and will hope for the best outcome. 

I am not happy today -

FROM TexasWannaBeCali: MBA Admissions Advice: The Criteria
So I promised I would start posting more, so here we go! Barring any major setbacks, I will be taking my GMAT on Saturday August 23rd, so in a little over a month (YIKES!) and applying to all 4 of my schools in Round 2 (I’ll elaborate more on this decision in a later post). Most R2 deadlines fall around the first one or two weeks in January, but my goal is to have everything submitted by the beginning of December so I can at least attempt to enjoy my Christmas and New Year holiday in peace. I’ll be posting a breakdown of my application preparation schedule in the next week or so. Now that I’ve started doing marginal essay brainstorming, I put together this list of criteria that adcoms look for in a b school application and have made notes in a spreadsheet on my strengths and weaknesses (will provide in a later post), and how I plan to either leverage, strengthen or combat them in the next 4 months. A lot of the weaknesses my current application has, such as undergraduate university and years of work experience, I can’t do anything to change, but this exercise has given me the opportunity to start thinking of ways to turn them into somewhat positives if asked via the essay and/or interview. For example: My undergrad is moreso known for its football team than for academics, but instead of looking at it as a negative or weaknesses, I would expand on the fact that this school also happened to be out of state where I knew absolutely no one. I was completely alone and forced out of my comfort zone, but it was an experience that taught me how to stand on my own two feet, build new friendships, and be open to different types of people and cultures. Below is a subset of what my self analysis looks like.

CRITERIA
ASSESSMENT
ACTION

UNDER REPRESENTED MINORITY APPLICANT
STRENGTH
LEVERAGE MY INVOLVEMENT IN VOLUNTEER WORK AT AN ORGANIZATION TARGETED AT HELPING YOUNG MINORITY GIRLS IN THE COMMUNITY

LEADERSHIP OUTSIDE OF WORK
CAN IMPROVE
WANT TO ORGANIZE A CHARITY FUNDRAISER

UNDERGRADUATE UNIVERSITY
WEAKNESS
FOCUS ON HOW OUT OF STATE SCHOOL WAS IMPORTANT FOR PERSONAL GROWTH

Feel free to do this as well if you haven’t already and even share in the comments any criteria I may have missed. It definitely puts things into perspective. A little introspection does the b school application good.

ACADEMIC PROFILE

  • Above average GPA
  • Undergraduate degree from a school with an excellent academic reputation
  • GMAT score in your program’s 80% range/above or at median
  • High Quant score
CAREER PROFILE

  • Employer is known for high hiring standards
  • Years of work experience
  • Quality of work experience
  • Evidence of career progression (in both responsibilities and promotions/titles)
  • Excellent letters of recommendation
LEADERSHIP PROFILE

  • Leadership at work
  • Leadership outside of work
  • Evidence of managerial potential
  • Desire to strengthen leadership skills and improve on weaknesses
CAREER GOALS

  • Definitive career goals (short term and long term)
  • Explain desire, passion and significance for that career goal
  • Adcoms can connect the dots between previous skills/experiences and post-MBA career goals
  • Know why an MBA is essential for achieving these career goals
  • Can illustrate why you need an MBA from that specific program
PERSONAL PROFILE

  • Maturity
  • Life experience
  • Are you an under represented minority or international applicant
  • Demonstrate you are a well rounded individual
  • Extracurricular involvement
  • Volunteer experiences
  • International travel
  • A great fit with the school’s culture
  • Express desire for new experiences, relationships and opportunities
  • Can prove why an MBA is necessary RIGHT now

FROM Pulling That MBA Trigger: Pruning down my school list!
Decisions, decisions! It was unbelievably hard for me to pick exactly which schools I should apply to. I had very happily assumed that my consultant would take care of this for me, unfortunately (and appropriately), he refused to make the decision for me based on my ‘chances of getting in’. I am usually a very decisive person, however this situation was made complicated simply because I am also very adaptable. I can pretty much live in cities or in the suburbs, I can handle hot and cold, I can do the case study method and the lecture method. I do have preferences of course, but if I see something else I like about the program, that instinct kicks in and all my perfectly calculated nuances go right outside the window.

I finally decided to stop meandering back and forth and make a scientific decision instead. Hello Excel sheet. I loosely based it on the one made by MBA Girl Journey, but I put my own spin on it.

Image
Took me so much longer than you would imagine.

So I basically started by taking the rankings and kind of aggregating all of them to group schools into three classes. I removed the top 5 at the get go (Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, Booth and Kellogg) and grouped the remaining in the 5 – 10, 10 – 15 and 15 – 20 category. I then assigned weights to them assuming that the lower ranked ones would be less competitive and thereby easier to get into. With that done, I needed to figure out what mattered the most to me.

In India, even if some of the larger schools are unknown, people have generally heard of the Ivies. This is an important distinction to make since I know I want to come back to India 2 – 3 years post an MBA. So the Ivies got multiplied by a factor of 2 just for that reason alone. I know my interests lie in consulting and although all the top schools act as feeders to the industry, I just highlighted the ones that seemed to have a better conversion rate. It was kind of difficult to do this objectively since the data is all over the place, but I tried. Next, location. I went to college for undergrad at this university town and I absolutely loved it. You could walk around everywhere, have the typical college experience, you would bump into 10 people you know just about anywhere and the feeling of camaraderie was just awesome. I decided that I would like to live on a campus town and not in a big city. This also led to a preference for slightly smaller class sizes (but this wasn’t an actual factor). Finally, the must subjective of them all… fit. I seriously wish I had time to visit at least some of these schools, but I just have to go by the stuff I read and hear from people. I spoke to a LOT of people from Yale and I love the sound of it. Darden is the one I’m not too sure about fit wise, but I have mailed a few current students and recent alumni to ask them about it, let’s see what I hear.

With all the factors in place, the maximum possible score was a 10 and as you can see, Yale ticked all the boxes for me. I have a really good feeling about Yale since it is ranked right where I feel like I would have a competitive chance. For me, it has that prestige of a Harvard or an Oxford, you know that old world charm and sometimes I can’t even imagine brown skinned me playing croquet or whatever on those green lawns. Luckily, that’s only my mental imagery and Yale is a beautiful mix of the old and the new. It is absolutely my number one choice. Next comes Tuck which by all accounts is a really great school. Again, it has that Dartmouth Ivy thing going for it apart from the obvious benefits… and their consulting stats look pretty good. Last two are Johnson and Darden, but I think I’m going to replace Darden with Said (Oxford) as I do want to throw a European school into the mix and I am only applying to four schools. I’m a little put off by the fact that Said is a 1 year program and I will barely squeak past the required 2 years of work experience, but consulting seems to be one of their strongholds and the Oxford brand is inimitable.

This is what it looks like in order of priority:

  • Yale
  • Tuck
  • Johnson
  • Darden/Said
I think this is the final list, but I will probably run them by my consultant and see what he thinks of them. I would love to hear you guys’ opinions. Bring them in!

FROM Hamm0's Blog: The Joys of Funemployment
Ah yes. Funemployment. The time between when you quit your job and when you start your MBA. The promised land that many MBA applicants seek. The break that every one of my peers is a tad jealous about.

Image

But it isn’t all sunshine and roses. Don’t get me wrong, I haven’t been at work since early June. I’ve been spending my time golfing, going to the beach, eating good food, visiting friends and family, and just plain relaxing. But I’ve also received a long to-do list from Cornell over this summer that includes Accounting reading/homework, MBAMath prep, Career webinars, Personal branding exercises, suggested reading, exemption exam preparation, and many other things. Also on that list are many to-do items not directly related to the MBA program: Planning for housing, healthcare changes, organizing financials, physical/immunizations, etc. Throw in the stress of making a good first impression in meeting new classmates, pressure of doing well in a new academic environment, and uncertainty with recruiting and careers, and you can see that funemployment isn’t quite the most relaxing stuff.

Image

So whats my point? My point is leave yourself plenty of time when you do get accepted at your dream school. Don’t work right up to the deadline to save an additional $1500. Sure, it is important to be financially responsible as you begin to realize the massive cost of your MBA, but it is important that you show up to your program both relaxed and prepared.  I’ve found that quitting early has allowed me to work at all of those items listed above while being able to enjoy my time off. While I’m not quite done with my list, I’ve been fortunate to have one of the most relaxing couple of months I can remember.

Image

Now if you’ll excuse me, Professor Libby is expecting me to read about financial statement adjustments. That said, I can think of worse places to be studying accounting…

FROM Naija MBA Gal: Admission events – Wharton
Wharton came to Lagos!!! I was going through my admissions log (a cute notebook I use to keep track of all things related to MBA admissions) when I realized I hadn’t shared my experience from the session. I was really impressed by the event, there were roughly 10-15 applicants, 7 alumni and the director of admissions. […]Image

FROM Farhanc85: GMAT, Fitness and Inspiration
Yesterday, had a verbal workshop with E-gmat. I score 69 points, passing was 70. Highest for our batch was 84. I was satisfied with my performance but not happy. Now I am trying to understand the difference between satisfied and happy. Former is a way of telling yourself I could have done better but I didn't. Satisfy is like an excuse of not giving your 100% for a topic. Solved more than 100 questions yesterday with an accuracy of 80% that was close to happiness.:)

After the workshop as I usually do I browsed through pages of GMATclub and came across this. And I was 'wow'ed by commitment of some members. I have been making excuses for not exercising since almost 3 months now. Started missing my runs. Finally decided to get hold of a workout which can be done at home and involves running. After browsing through lot of stuff I have now decided to follow Neila Rey. Check out her 30 days non-stop workouts. I wish someday to do a superhero workout. Today was day 1 of the workout. I think 1 hour of fitness activity will give boost to my brain to deal with GMAT.

During lunch time at work I was browsing through INSEAD's student blogs and I came across an ex-student who dreams to change the world and is working hard towards that dream. Her penmanship is simply outstanding. To be so honest in a blog post is rarely seen, I try to be honest but I like many others am superficial in my blogs. I can't dive deep inside myself and let out my vulnerability out. But, this woman is simply outstanding in bringing out her emotions and using it as strength. Truly inspiring. Read her post Me, myself and I… discovering identity at INSEAD – part II.

That's it for now, e-gmat course is over for me time for solving problems and diving into mocks.

Till then......
