Help me !! I am spending a lot of time on GMATClub (Specially at work), and by the time I get home, I am so exhausted from thinking MBA all day that I don't even feel like working on the essays. My first essay is still in it's first paragraph

HA HA HA,

join the club here....I have been doing the same.

I have 3 disjointed paras with sh%% written all over - went out to dinner with another MBA aspirant to do some brain storming, ended up trying to meet some fancy ladies - actual mission unaccomplished, bonus missions totally accomplished.

Need to put in more thoughts and EFFORTS to work on the essays.

from the asexual point of view, yes.

Los Angeles women are more finicky than any ad com. They measure you first hand to see your net worth. Lets say, I am yet to climb the social ranks to really make a mark.....

for references, see lindsay lohan, paris hilton and gang...

Not sure if I should be discouraging this form of addiction.

Weekends and an internet free environment (cafe?) would be your best bet.

Not sure if my logic will work for you, but all our moderators in the last admissions season spent a lot of time here and they will be attending some of the finest schools in the USA.

Hehe. Thanks for the confidence booster, ncprasad

Praetorian, your suggestion is fair. I'll try sitting at Borders this weekend.

Do you think that if 1 or 2 of your 10 essays are botched, that you can still get into the interview stage if you have a strong academic background ?
