Plan A

According to the initial plan, I was supposed to get into Stanford and any other school then choose Stanford. But that is not going to happen so here’s the revised version: Get into Sloan and Booth, make the decision when time comes.

If you need me …

I’ll be under my blanket crying my heart out. Just got a ding from Stanford. I’m entirely and utterly confused. So I’m going to go through the motions of work today ill I can crawl under my blanket and sleep for at least 12 hours straight.

This was not supposed to happen. Now I’ve got to go through the entire process for round 2. 50% is not enough to put my entire faith on for this round.

In case you were wondering…

I am still waiting for my invitation to interview at Stanford GSB. Yes, I’m aware that it’s just two days to go till the window closes but you’re talking to the lady who got her Booth invite on the last day and her Sloan invite on the day before the last. I’m not giving up hope! I can’t!In my mind, I’m a member of Stanford MBA class of 2017, have been since August 1, 2014 and I don’t foresee any changes to that. Read the rest of this entry »

It is in my interest …

To stay away from  MBA application  forums for a while. At least  until  I  hear from  Stanford. I’m not certain I  can handle  the  constant  anxiety that comes with the forums.  Also the negativity  is getting  old and I still  don’t  like it.

While waiting…

As all my good friends know, patience is not one of my strong points. And Stanford is stretching beyond what I thought was my capacity but I am handling it just fine. Sort of. There are three things occupying most of my thoughts at this time: Read the rest of this entry »

Sloan invite!!!!

I really cannot say much now as I am rushing to get to work. But I promise to update this post with the next 4 hrs. Thanks to everyone for helping me keep hope alive.


I have arrived at work (a bit too excited for a Friday but we’ll keep the reason a secret 😉 ) and I have also scheduled my interview for December 2 which gives me almost one month to prepare.

I had an amazing interview with Booth!!!

And I am super busy at work trying to make up for the three hours I took off work yesterday.  But it is totally worth it.

The interview was supposed to start by 2pm, my interviewer and I had agreed to meet at a restaurant half way between our offices. About, one hour to the time, we had to reschedule for a slightly later time but that wasn’t an issue.
