Great post L. Made an amazingly great read. Story of our lives.

I must say this club has been a great support group but sometimes I wonder ignorance is bliss.

I hope phase 7 comes soon, very soon.

Re: The 7 phases of B-school application [#permalink]
This post is awesome!

I would have never thought so, but the worst part of the application process by a long shot was in-between phase 6 & 7, where your application & interview is complete and you're waiting for a decision.

I swear this is really when it all starts getting to your head! For the two weeks I waited for a response from CBS my heart would literally skip a beat every time I heard my e-mail box or phone ring.

LMAO! hahaha. Fantastic post! I am in phase 6 now, and by far this has been the hardest part since I decided I wanted the MBA degree 3 years ago. Hope to move to phase 7 soon!
