Fridays From the Frontline
Hello there and welcome to another edition of Fridays From the Frontline! This week those just starting their application experience focused predominantly on GMAT study while newly crowned members of the class of 2013 continued to prepare themselves for the changes they would soon go through. Meanwhile, current students attended conferences and prepared for the last weeks of their b-school careers.
Carl Incognito shared his approach to studying for the AWA section of the GMAT. Ellipser listed the outcomes of 17 friends’ b-school applications and reminded those on the waitlist to hold on just a little longer. J.M. said yes to Fuqua but then had to deal with getting off of Ross’ waitlist and a tempting fellowship offer from Anderson. Just Ship attempted to channel all the optimism he could muster into his continued position on Chicago Booth’s waitlist. Unfathomable was feeling good about his quant performance on practice GMAT tests. Pyarapopat was a little less happy with his GMAT prep results.
Darden ’12 Darden Poet found time to reflect on the lessons he learned over his first year of b-school. Kellogg ’12 Jeremy asked his readers how they would respond to an offensive comment or email. LBS ’12 mbahut shared his own thoughts on creativity in business education programs. INSEAD ’11 V. traveled to Cannes and saw a movie star or two.
Kellogg ’11 Shobhit encouraged everyone, especially minorities, to register as marrow donors. Haas ’11 Andrew felt better about his own tax preparation after considering how corporations ‘work’ the system. Kellogg ’11 D.G. sought to better understand the organization of the startup community in Chicago. Kellogg ’11 Orlando attended the Greater China Business Conference, which was the last Kellogg conference of the year.
And that’s a wrap of this installment of Fridays From the Frontline. We hope that all bloggers are enjoying these warmer days, and that their studies (or festivities) are as productive as possible. Until next week, have a great weekend!
