Travel09: To travel a lot before I start B'school in 09.
But this thread has got me thinking about whats on my mind MBA or travel before MBA? I should get my priorities right

Travel - I'm definitely thinking a lot about my trip for before b-school right now! Considering that I'm going traveling before I'm going to b-school, I think its ok to have it on my mind.... right?

Mine is a combination of the names of my two dogs (shown in the picture). They were named after characters from Caddyshack.

I know one refers to Judge Smails (Elihu), what is your other dog's name?

That's good, a lot of Caddyshack fans couldn't come up with that. My other dog is named Porterhouse.

Oh wow.. why did the Audi get rid of the twin turbo engine??? that must be awesome!

I believe there were reliability issues with the turbos. I remember reading about alot of people having to replace them right around 100k miles. Most of them went to bigger K04 turbos, so I think alot of people didn't mind. With ECU, exhaust, and bigger turbos (and usually) larger injectors, people were hitting over 450hp. In a pretty nondescript car too. I love sleeper sedans.

I haven't gotten to drive one of the V8 S4s. I would sure like to.

You guys have been pretty creative with your user-names. My reasoning was simple .. Neo is my nickname. But since "Neo" user-name was already taken, I just added an "m", as in, "I am Neo". That's why the small "m" in "mNeo".

Pretty dumb, I know.
As for the avatar, it's just a standard Linux Penguin.

Well, mine's pretty self-explanatory, I think. When I started this whole process, I found the GMAT very daunting, so in a fit of self-pity, I came up with my current moniker. I do have hope that my personal playing field is leveling out a bit, though...

My second guess was going to be from palloy (or however you spell it), as in Spaulding's "Ahoy palloy"

I fell in love with Darden business school last year. As any other stupid girl would, I created my nickname with my love in mind. This year I found someone better (Tuck, Ross) but my nickname remained the same for the good old times sake.
The 2010 part is the year I will be graduating from Tuck or Ross

and... I am the one with no creativity in user names...

its my first name.. nothing more to say to that.

but nobody calls me by it since that name has been truncated ever since I grew up in Japan... the Japanese folks would have fits by the time they pronounced the end syllable of my name..

it sounded more like poop than roop..

i seriously wanted to change my name to something japanese like ken or ryoshi..

that would be hilarious.. my dad threatened to disown me while my mom did an indian housewife drama + major invoking to the gods..

so I use my first name on all forums..sad!!!

You biased, you! Link to http://netbsd.org/ and http://openbsd.org/ as well (If nothing more). BSD ain't freebsd.

The "Emory" comes from the school I wanted to get into. The "Hopeful" comes from the school I was hopeful to get into. Talk about creative!
