Fridays From the Frontline
Hi there, and welcome to this week’s Fridays From the Frontline, Clear Admit’s ongoing blog series focused on the fascinating feats of MBA applicant and student bloggers. This week GMAT prep and interview invitations were on the minds of many applicants while students were more concerned with increasing coursework and recruiting season’s opportunities and regrets.
Ellipser turned his attentions to what it might be like to date while in an MBA program. Unfathomable considered the value and merits of procrastinating when preparing for the GMAT. Though he thought his GMAT study days were behind him JM began to consider taking the exam one last time in an effort to improve his waitlist chances at Haas. Though he saw improvement Mission GMAT still wasn’t able to get his practice scores above 700. Mukaam decided to end her MBA journey in favor of a teaching fellowship in India. Nick prepared for his travels to Nepal by learning the country’s alphabet and number system. Random Wok happily announced his Haas interview invite, which he hadn’t been 100% sure was going to materialize. Rashida was offered a new job at work and weighed whether waiting on her MBA pursuit for this position was the best direction to go. The Log submitted his application to Marshall, knowing that the living expenses in LA wouldn’t be low.
IMD ’11 Howie took solace in the fact he wasn’t the only one slowly getting more and more work to do (and less and less sleep). Kellogg ’12 Jeremy recounted the ongoing interview process on campus, noting a marked increase in the number of his fellow students wearing suits on any given day. INSEAD ’11 V. and a gaggle of his cohort took a train into Paris and managed to see quite a lot of sights without losing any member of their group.
Darden ’11 Julie wasn’t the only one in her class to arrive to class at least a hour early in order to grab their preferred assigned seat for the rest of the course’s duration. Kellogg ’11 DG shared a few of his favorite inspirational quotations. Harvard ’11 Military to Business returned from his trip to India and used an experience involving monkeys and orange soda to illustrate a business point. Kellogg ’11 Orlando wrote about the recent Kellogg Marketing Conference and the importance of collaboration at the school. Darden ’11 MissMBA was reminded of how tough her first year was after looking at how recruiting season was affecting the class of 2012.
