Before we all quit our jobs and move away to new cities for business school and etc, I want to congratulate everyone on their success this application season. It's been a honor sharing my application journey with you all, and I hope to see most of you guys checking in from his or her school periodically.

Special Thanks Goes to:

• Solaris1 - Thanks for choosing to attend my alma mater even with all the horror stories that rca215 and I dumped on you.
• Jerz – Hopefully you will continue to prove me wrong from Evanston that my decision to move to New Haven instead of Evanston is a career killing move.
• IHTG – I will forever envy you for heading to the school of my dreams.
• Isa – Thank you for making me realize that Wisconsin is somewhat “cool”…
• Traffix – Thanks for teaching me how to improve my research skills….
• Raabend – Chad Muska!
• Rca215 – You will end up missing New Haven
• Fatb – My condolences for attending same school as Raabend
• Manbilla – I will miss Fisherbilla
• Olive – “……………..”
• RahlowJenkins – Will you take me out on your boat?
• Terp26 – You’re my biggest Yale SOM supporter from Hyde Park
• Zoinnk – I don’t smell anymore. Come back to chatroom.
• Bsd_lover – You inspired me to do a R4 application.
• Sonibubu – I am your #1 fan of your blog…..more stories on your “bromance” in the future please….

I am not sure if there is a single person who doesn't share your situation.

However, I am sure in few months - we will end up missing our day jobs when 1st yr related bschool stuff kills us ..... over and over again....

I've actually written about that in my blog lately, how after the visits and interviews and admitted student weekends, there's this lull between the end of applications and the start of school. Sure, there's a lot to do in the meantime, but you want to get started NOW! As I said on my blog, the application process is like being allowed to take a road trip. We've got our cars packed and we're sitting in the gas station ready to go, but we can't get started yet!

Gosh nink, is this you signing off? It sounds like the end of Apollo 13 on here :-D

Good luck to you all!

Sweet, the first thing I see after a few days away from GC is dudes touching dudes.

I want to keep Terp26 as my Facebook friend. He might not approve the activity above. I don't need another member to de-friend me. :-D

I finally met a bunch of G-Clubbers at DAK last week and it occured to me that I really don't spend enough time here to catch all the drama.

I certainly won't miss the job itself. And what ever happened to that LBS application?

Raabend there's a whole section on craigslist where you can find the kind of people you're looking for.

...

And my own thanks to everyone on here - it's been great fun.
