Just curious - what would y'all say is the theme song for your application process?
I could be because of the song title, lyric, etc =)

Thought this might be a fun way to lighten up people's day!

Maybe "No surprises" by Radiohead? Kind of describes my demeanor in my current dead-end job for the past 11 months as I ponder my MBA application/dream of my new life as a student :-D

If it isn't "The Waiting" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers then I don't know what it could be.

You're inspired :)

I'd say:

AC/DC: "It´s a long way to the top"

The process has been so effort demanding, and I know that it's just the beginning...

Nice choice, Kwam...

I have been trying to console myself with "Wasted Years" by Iron Maiden

I'm assuming most adcoms will gleefully hum Twisted Sister's "We're Not Gonna Take It" while reading my applications. :cry:

For me its simply "Redemption Song" by the one and only Bob Marley. Simply because of the mental slavery that is my current career :-), and also this is one of my all time favorite songs.

"Faith of the Heart" - Russell Watson, theme song of Star Trek: Enterprise TV show (I'm a geek)

But the lyrics fit SO well... :)

It's been a long road getting from there to here
It's been a long time, but my time is finally near
and I will see my dream come alive at last
I will touch the sky
and they're not gonna hold me down no more
No they're not gonna change my mind

Cause I've got faith of the heart I'm going where my heart will take me
I've got faith to believe I can do anything
I've got strength of the soul and no one's gonna bend or break me
I can reach any star, I've got faith, I've got I've got I've got faith....faith of the heart

I'll actually take this up a notch...

:punkTHE MBA APPLICATION PLAYLIST :punk

When we sat there wondering where we were headed to in life - Time - Pink Floyd (This one, purely for its lyrics)
When we saw that an MBA was the way go - I can see clearly now - Jimmy Cliff
The stage where acing the GMAT was all we thought about - Nothing Else Matters - Metallica
The stage where one realizes the GMAT was just the beginning - I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For - U2
You wonder if a consultant can help you - We deal in Dreams - Live
You figure out the answer to the above question - You can make it if you try - Rolling Stones
You try perfecting your essays - Endless Quest - Enigma
When your boss delays your reco - I love you I'll kill you - Enigma
You get all your apps out on time - No more Pain - 2Pac
Waiting for the interview invite - Sitting Waiting Wishing - Jack Johnson
You get that interview invite - Knockin on heaven's door - Guns n' Roses
Waiting for your results - Hard to Concentrate - RHCP
After the first reject - The show must go on - Queen
After the First Admit - I believe I can Fly - R Kelly
After enrolling - Feelin' Way Too Damn Good - Nickelback

That was fun...wonder if current students can add to the storyline above

At this rate we can come up with a 2/3 CD set for the whole journey up until graduation
