BOOKMARKED
School research, done...GMAT studying, over...applications, submitted. Now, I'm happy to report that I've been accepted to Babson's One-Year program with a generous scholarship! WHEW, it feels good to be done...oh wait, I haven't even STARTED yet... :shock:

My first classes start this May, so it's time for me to create a Pre-Matriculation To Do List. Since most of you will have to do the same this summer, I thought it'd be a good idea to post my first draft here and get feedback. Prospectives, current students and alumni, please let me know what you are planning to do/did do/wish you had done in the months prior to matriculating at your MBA program! I will try to update this post as members provide their thoughts.

PERSONAL

Now that I think about it, this probably belongs in the B-School Life Forum. Mods, would you mind moving this thread over there? Thanks!
