I’m here!!!

28 Feb

I’ve been away from the blogosphere for a long while and I apologize for that. Some of it is laziness but most of it is being overwhelmed; by work, plans and decisions. It occurred to me that I never posted my decision here so that’s what I’m here to do. Unsurprisingly I accepted Booth’s offer. Surprisingly, I have decided (haven’t sent the actual email but decision’s been made) to withdraw my Sloan application.

My main reason for withdrawing from Sloan’s waitlist is that I realized that Sloan is not one of the schools I will decline Booth to attend. I never felt the sense of belonging that I felt for Booth with Sloan. So while it is tempting to hold out for an offer (especially since I’m still hoping for a better financial aid package from Booth), I realize that will just be for negotiation purposes and I will not be going to Sloan in the end.

From the beginning, I’ve had a good fit with Booth. There are only two schools, that out rank it on my list and that is because of reputation & alumni presence in Nigeria. Of those 2, one rejected me, the other I did not apply to.

So I’m officially a member of Booth class of 2017. Once again a big ‘thank you’ to everybody who has been a part of this journey and good luck to my friends still waiting for the good news – it’ll come 🙂

    Hurrah! Congrats on making your decision – I’m sure it must be a huge weight off your mind! And, while that means we can’t be classmates after all, I hope you will keep in touch with the blogosphere and let us know how your prep is going 🙂

    Congrats! Wishing you the best on your MBA journey.

    I would like to ask you (or anyone) If you have any recommendation on private loans and sources for financing an MBA in the US.

      Thanks. I’m equally interested in that. I’ll let you know if I find something. Have you decided on a school?
