I have hardly been working, 8-5 work has reduced to 8-1 :) But, I'm enjoying it, have worked my backside enough.

Bschool is my priority, so in a way i'm doing justice to my "life" :)

Work? That sounds vaguely familiar....
I might have done that before, I think? :???

I agree. If someone is applying to b-school and their work productivity hasn't gone down, they deserve to be the first ones in at b-school.

I was just reviewing one of my essays for the last 10 minutes, then I came onto GMAT Club and now I am wrapping up and planning on leaving the office within 15 mins.

alt+tab are my favourite keys on the keyboard at work these days. Continuously swap between short essay editing sessions to MBA blogs, to GMATClub.com to errr Outlook (where i pretend to do work.)

I've been checked out since I finished my last project a few weeks ago. Work is so slow right now I have about 4 hours a day in which to work on apps so that's what I've been doing. Since my boss knows that I'm applying I think she understands.

I've been trying to keep it around 8 hours a day or so. Otherwise I start to go crazy and can't look at it anymore. At least I'll be done with R1 stuff soon which is good...
