Fridays From the Frontline
Hello there and welcome to Fridays From the Frontline, our weekly look into the ups and downs of b-school applicant and student bloggers. This week applicants continued their preparation for the upcoming application season while current students covered a variety of topics in their most recent posts.
Yours Truly felt confident about his preparation for one part of the GMAT but continued to work on sentence correction. Kruthika was also focusing on sentence correction. Motown summarized a recent interview she had with a current Johnson student. Unfathomable was one of 120 to attend an ISB information session, and shared his takeaways from the event. Night Owl hoped for the best after being put on Kellogg’s summer waitlist. Rolipolli shared a few funny images of how not to do mathematical equations. Top MBA linked to a recent Tuck post about reapplying to their program. Just Ship decided against attending business school and explained why.
Harvard ’13 Parker turned 25 and set off fireworks to celebrate. Anderson ’13 Random Wok wrote of his experience being unemployed and struggling with serious health concerns.
Darden ’12 Jonathan lunched with a CEO. IMD ’11 Howie, his wife and in-laws visited the town of Gruyere and saw a fair amount of cheese … not to mention an alien or two. Kellogg ’12 Jeremy considered reasons a JD/MBA student might ultimately enter the legal field. INSEAD ’11 V. was momentarily distracted by a quotation, but refocused on his exams. Fuqua ’12 Dots not Feathers titled his recent post “MBA in the time of Economic Cholera” and apologized to Gabriel Garcia Marquez for appropriating the title.
And that’s the news for this week. We hope to continue to hear about the latest prep and adventures of applicants and students alike. Until next week, have a great weekend … and if you’re in the States, have a happy Fourth of July weekend!
