On a lighter note…

I’m currently sitting in the saloon getting my hair done. Which means I’ve got some free time even if it is just a few hours. Anyway, a few things just occurred to me:

I’ll need a new saloon
I’m hungry – I’m gonna miss Nigerian food.

Not Panicking

I am not panicking. Nope, Not at all.

But I am beginning to wonder what I was thinking when I decided to work full-time and plan my cross-continent relocation at the same time. There is a lot to do and I am honestly very tired – most (if not all) of the time! Read the rest of this entry »

Plans, Plans & more Plans

That seems to be all my life is about now. I really wish I could afford to go on funemployment right now so I can fully focus on preparing for school but I can’t for two reasons, only one of which is money. *sigh*.

On your marks …

It’s been a while since I posted anything here. Very sorry for the silence but it was necessary. Here’s a rundown of what has happened since my last post:

  • I’ve gone on a mini-vacation
  • Gotten on an (read: several) apartment wait list (also actively searching on Zillow)
  • had a minor surgery
  • Freaked out over the financial implications of getting an MBA (this is almost routine now)
  • Turned down a job offer
  • Turned down a post-MBA job offer (two actually)
  • Met with a few members of the Booth class of 2017 (nice people)
  • Paid my second commitment deposit
  • Wrapped up several projects at work

For Round 2 interviewees

First, let me say: Congrats on your invite!!
I’ve been getting a few emails from round two applicants that recently received interview invitations. So I decided to put this up to help as many as need it. I’ve listed the things I did to prepare for my interview. You can also check my interview debriefs: Booth & Sloan. And Fi’s Stanford debrief (P.S: she got in!!!)

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.
