What is your war cry for this application season? [#permalink] New post 18 Jul 2007, 18:16
Something fun.

We 2008 fall applicants are in for some stressful times. After all, this IS the application season from hell.

If you had to come up with a one-liner to summarize your thoughts about the application season ahead what would that be?

My motto is a boring "No Stone Left Unturned" (I know this isn't exactly inspirational or war cry-ish).

What's yours?

edit : Let's make this a little more interesting.

Since creativity with brevity is the characteristic of good essays, lets turn this thing into a competition. Some rules.

*Only 2008 applicants allowed to participate.
*Your war cry cannot exceed 8 words.
*Only English allowed.
*Multiple entries allowed.

Best entry to be chosen by the outgoing gmatclub class(MBA class of 2009).

You think that's boring? How about, "I can do it"?

"Party like a Rock star"

With that attitude I'm hoping to get my first app completed by R3 :lol:.

How about "Say hello to my little friend!"

If Ross is at the top of your list "Hail to the victors" is the beginning of the greatest fight song in history and an obvious choice. I'll say this as an alum even though they messed up my application last year.

I bet "Show me the money!" will work for some.

I've always been a fan of "The price is wrong b!tch!" Try screaming that when you're facing a challenge. You'll feel great.

I often think of the Terry Tate Office Linebacker Video when working on the GMAT, the application or doing stressful stuff... My favourite quote would be :

"Tchhhooook Tchooook ! The pain train is coming !"

or

"It's a mind game"

You guys should google the video if you haven't seen it. It's hilarious...
