Happy New Year!!! And round two help :)

Congrats everyone!!! We’re in the year when most of us will be resuming at Business schools 🙂

This is going to be very brief but I know it’ll help someone. This post is specifically for round two applicants yet to submit. Two things I want to say:

  • The entire application matters. Looking back at my applications, I realize that there are a lot of things my essays did not address but I see them addressed in other parts of my submission.

That’s all it really is.

Admission decisions are due next week and like a lot of people, I’m holding my breath. But I feel the need to put this out here. Hopefully, it will help someone put things in perspective.

We are all great people doing something very wonderful with our lives. We have dreams and goals and things we want to do. Going to business school is NOT the goal, it has never being.

Waiting for the rain part 2

I’m waiting for  Booth and Sloan to release their admission decisions. So far,  I don’t feel stressed but it has occurred to me that I need to start planning for school. Maybe not the finer details since I’m not yet sure of which state I will be going to. But I’m doing a lot of dreaming, hoping and praying. And budgeting, and planning and wondering.
