I’m here!!!

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. 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 »

Where I am now.

Cloud 9.

Less half.

I had already started a Booth vs Sloan comparison before I received decisions from both schools. Now I have to decide whether I want a spot in Sloan’s waitlist or not. Before Dec 22. Sadly, I wasn’t planning to make that decision this year. Read the rest of this entry »

My Sloan interview debrief

So I had my long-awaited Sloan interview less than two days ago and it went well, very well but not excellently which is probably why I have not come to update everyone n how it went. My major issue is realizing after the interview that all the questions had a similar theme (teamwork) and knowing that I did not notice that while the interview was going on. Also, I know I used the STAR and PAR method and that I showed my thought process in some answers. It’s just that my clearadmit interview guide encouraged showing how you felt in your answers and I don’t think I did that which makes me feel disappointed. Read the rest of this entry »

Plan A

According to the initial plan, I was supposed to get into Stanford and any other school then choose Stanford. But that is not going to happen so here’s the revised version: Get into Sloan and Booth, make the decision when time comes.

In case you were wondering…

I am still waiting for my invitation to interview at Stanford GSB. Yes, I’m aware that it’s just two days to go till the window closes but you’re talking to the lady who got her Booth invite on the last day and her Sloan invite on the day before the last. I’m not giving up hope! I can’t!In my mind, I’m a member of Stanford MBA class of 2017, have been since August 1, 2014 and I don’t foresee any changes to that. Read the rest of this entry »
