Good thing I was in a good mood and smiled for the picture.

I might have to retake GMAT now. My exam was on a Sunday and I had a two day stubble.

I had an interesting observation. Seems relevant here.

I browsed thorugh Stanford website, every page, and found many pictures of students and alumni. All were consistently very good looking. Just my observation.

Anyway, I am more hopeful for Stanford now, I might be cosidered as diversity for that group with equally good looking people....

I'm sure at this very minute there are adcoms deciding who to admit based on a "hotornot" style competition of applicants' GMAT pictures!

Oops. When I have to take an exam, I dress up in a training, put on some horrible glasses and am in a I-don't-want-to-talk-to-anybody-leave-me-alone-or-I-will-kill-you mood.

Yes, it has been known that your score goes up between 3-5 points of quant and 6-9 points on verbal if you show up at the test center in drag.

I might not have remembered either, except that I remember my face being plastered on the monitor when I signed off and locked my computer for the break. It's a little weird, but they don't mess around with security.

I'd like to chair Derek Zoolanders group for really, really good-looking MBA aspirants.

On a different note, who looks good in that cheap webcam picture they take of you? (and should you worry if you do?)
