The obvious follow-on question is: "now that you are into a b-school, what is your productivity %? I seem to only be able to muster up about a 75%

I think my productivity will go up if/when I get admitted. My company is small and the owners have been very good to me so I'll want to leave on a good note.

Now, if I were at a big firm that would screw me over in a heartbeat...I'd drop to about 20% productivity until I turn in my two weeks.

My productivity was low as an applicant. As an admitted student it fell off a cliff.

Since being admitted, I've done the bare minimum to avoid being fired. I think I could keep this up well into May.

Awful but it also might be a function of the frozen credit markets

I was at about 25-50% productivity until March, then I went "part time" till July, meaning 0-10% productivity for the next 4 months. :P
