hm I don't think so. He comes off as pretty arrogant and not someone with whom you'd want to associate with.

I laughed my arse off at that part, though I must admit I'm a little envious of him clearing $150K a year part time Manager Joined: 16 Sep 2007 Posts: 215 Followers: 1 Kudos [?]: 12 [0], given: 0 Re: What NOT to do when you're on the WL [#permalink] ### Show Tags 20 Apr 2008, 15:55 MGOBLUE2 wrote: I thought it was pretty creative (minus the paystub)...I bet he gets in.

If I was the AdCom, I would be asking - why do you need an MBA? He doesn't speak of his motivations or desires behind getting an MBA at all during the video. It's very difficult to do this and not come off as either a) desperate, b) arrogant, or c) both.

WOW! It's kinda of creepy as someone said. I applaud him for his creativity and putting himself on the line for this, but the fact that he posted it on YouTube and the way he filmed the thing... it was just very strange...
