Any one has any idea on how to mention that I had saved every dollar for the past 4 years and made investments so that I can have some money to do MBA and that I am paying MBA bymyslef..

Is that boasting about your achievements? can you say that somewhere that you have been thinking of MBA for 3 years and thats why i have been saving money for that so that i dotn get onto debt?

???

Although it took five years, through patience, perserverance, and some sound investment choices, I now finally find myself in a position to attend an MBA program. Having had to wait so long has beem trying and, at times, frustrating but I now find myself immensily excited at the prospect of attending _____"
