I have no pink shoes

First off I’d like to wish all round two applicants the very best of luck in their applications. Hope you get into your dream schools.

Since my admission to Booth, I have being immersed in the Booth culture and I can say that I did not make a mistake in my initial analysis. Also, I am now much more certain that I can flourish in that environment. I have also noted that I am not as open to change as I thought I was. I know I will be going to business school this fall but I’m not as elated about it as I should be and this has nothing to do with the school I got into (which is a great school).

Stanford Africa MBA Fellowship – Deadline approaching

One of the many current MBA student I’ve been discussing with just reminded (read: informed) me that this all-expense-paid trip to a world-class MBA fellowship opportunity for Africans will stop accepting applications by June 13.

And yes, I’m still considering Stanford. I just have it stuck in my mind that they’re a great school for potential tech entrepreneurs and not any other type of entrepreneur. Any current student or recent alum that wants to shed more light on this for me is welcome.

Here’s the link to the fellowship page: Stanford Africa MBA Fellowship

You’re welcome.
