Divergent Roads

“The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
 Robert Frost

So which is the road less travelled? I don’t know but I’ll tell you the two roads Read the rest of this entry »

On being waitlisted

The sad part of being waitlisted is that the struggle for admission is not over.

The happy part of being waitlisted is that the struggle for admission is not over.

Yes, you read right. No I did not make a mistake.

My Dilemma

I have a big problem. It’s a good problem but a problem  nonetheless. I can’t decide whether to pursue Sloan’s waitlist or not. Read the rest of this entry »

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.

Nervous Energy

My interview is in approximately six hours and I’m extremely nervous. I don’t know if I’ve ever been this nervous in my life. I know nervousness is good especially before an important event (such as an interview with an adcom member that will directly impact on the rest of your life) but I wish the time would come already so I can do something else with my time while I wait for the decision.

Meanwhile, I’m heading back to my final preparations. Any one with any final advice for me?

I want to say …

A lot of things to a lot of people. Being able to submit my applications in round one is a direct result of the effort, time and emotions put into the applications by a lot of people. So this post is to say some of the things I want to say to all of you.

First, I want to say “I’m sorry”. Read the rest of this entry »

Stepping away from it all

One of my strengths also happens to be one of my major weaknesses (I know this sounds cheesy and everybody advises you not to use that line during your interview but it is true). Let me explain: I have never met a problem I could not solve – which is good. I may not be the smartest, strongest or bravest person in the room but I will keep going at a problem until I get it solved. That is who I am, it’s in my DNA. On the flip side of that, I will rarely do something else until I solve it – not good at all and I usually go into some form of analysis-paralysis or the other. How does this translate to my MBA application? Read the rest of this entry »
