fluke: I believe whatever happens in this world is a fluke. My very existence is just a "fluke". And if I were to get into a good business school; trust me, it gotta be a fluke. ;D

I think mine is obvious§

I see many things with "made in China", "made in USA", "made in france" etc... written on them.
I've hardly seen anything with "made in Africa" (or any country out there)

So I though I could be one of those "things" made in Africa, since I'm african... thus madeinafrica :-D

Schawjibb is my nick! Though it may seem to be a German name, it is a Bangladeshi one (a citizen of a South Asian country).

In Bangla (the language of Bangladesh), this name means Fresh/Lively.

Thanks to all.

My nick is after a river in my home town.

I just dropped the last 'a' in the river name to convert a femine-like word into a kind-of-male nick :)

'MBA Crystal Ball' ==> The clairvoyant (cheesy?) pseudonym is derived from one of the products (mock application) we conceptualized that allows MBA applicants to peek into their future and take corrrective actions in the present.

Back to the Future...redux?

Though we expanded into other conventional areas after that, somehow the name stuck on.

Note: This isn't a marketing pitch for what we do, just clarification of what our name means as several folks have asked us about it. So we had to explain this on our homepage!

u guys will think it's a straightforward huh??? nope...

PranavChamp = my name + Champions league

Being an Arsenal fan, I always dreamed that Arsenal will win UEFA champions league one day. So that's the reason i used Champ.

but seeing Gunners' current form...it seems a distant dream. :(

Banda Singh Bahadur was a Sikh general blessed by our saints , preordained by them to fight against Mughal Tyranny and extraordinarily talented .
Banda means slave as well as a Man
I cant ever be like him so will remain a Boy
Munda means Boy
Singh is Lion
123 stands for a uniform increase
Thus was born Mundasingh123 , the upholder of Truth

I started running marathons a couple years ago, but I'm not very fast. I took the name tortoiserun from one of my application essays, where I said something about being more tortoise than hare.

What a great topic! Here is my story:

I picked MBAgirl as a legacy to an anonymous blogger who got accepted at Wharton and became one of the key S2S administrators and contributors. Future MBA Girl. Here is her blog: http://futurembagirl.blogspot.com/ She seemed very supportive and made the MBA experience seem more transparent and interesting for outsiders. Her posts got me to fired up about doing an MBA (though they weren't my first inspiration) and also got me interested in Wharton to the point where I visited the school in 2006. The addition of 2010 to my nick happened because I couldn't get MBAgirl only and I didn't want to copy the Future part of her nick (every MBA girl needs a unique part of her name anyway).

Another reason why I decided to go with MBA girl was because at the time MBA and entrepreneurship was not very popular among women. I figured, most people assume that guys are behind online forum nicknames, so why not show the female side of the forum. I think MBA women are doing pretty well around here (we now have several MBAgirls, runnergirl, etc ) and I hope the girl moniker can show more women they can thrive in leadership positions and in business.
