This post is for anyone who has ever passed up on a great Friday night outing to work on their business school essays. This is not a post for complainers. This is a post for people so inspired and motivated to get into their dream school, that this seems hardly a sacrifice. This post is for those who have passed up on a beautiful girl who calls, beckoning them to show up at a bar, but instead stays in to listen to the beattles, and research why Kellogg or some such other school would be their perfect choice.

This post is not for people who whine. This is for people who drink wine by themselves, alone, in dimly lit room, reviewing their 12 draft on a essay at midnight on Friday.

This is for the people made loners or hermits by their passions.

This post is for the person who found friendships and trust on GMATclub.

This post is for those that some may call Friday night losers. This is for those that have heard 'you are being antisocial' every night for the next 6 weeks.

This is for the guy who calculated those Kellogg admission stats in an excruciating analysis. This post is also for those who tried to comprehend it.

We exist in numbers, and our bonds are silent. We find faith in each other, hear on this thing they call the Gmatclub.

Thanks for the memories, the laughter and the support.

One more night in the books, and one more step closer to our dreams.

Add one more to the count. I'm sitting on the couch watching "Scrubs," working on MIT essays while the wife does some freelance work. Now that's some quality time together.

Great post! If your essays are as engaging as your post, I think you'll be alright. Last night was my night out, tonight it's home working on the essays, so you can call me a Saturday Night Loser!

Kudos!

I'm looking forward to having my weekends back!

It was the only thing on that I wouldn't get too absorbed in! :) It's not too bad of a show though - reliable for the occasional predictable chuckle.

I wish I had some kind of DVR so I could record some better shows...play those while working on the essays....

yeah right you bunch of geeks, I know "partying" over the weekend for half of you involves WoW or GTA. So don't try and make it sound like you have lives. :P
