Fridays From the Frontline
Hi there and welcome to Fridays From the Frontline, Clear Admit’s weekly blog post focused on tracking the progress of b-school applicant and student bloggers. This week many applicants shifted their focus from strictly GMAT-related concerns to other elements of the MBA application process.
Ms. HR loved lists and shared her MBA-specific checklist. My MBA Dreamz contributed a number of new posts this week, including Wharton’s 2011-2012 essay topics. Night Owl reviewed Clear Admit and Beat the GMAT’s new online video series and was giving away two subscriptions for the reader who answered an essay prompt about truth and dreams. Rolipolli provided a template for a novel approach to rejection letters. During an illness Kruthika turned to the Economist for consolation and rest. Top MBA Blog only had one week left before sitting for the GMAT. A. compiled the list of questions asked to him during his Rotterdam interview.
Johnson ’13 Ellipser planned his goodbye party and allowed the reality of his impending separation from friends to soak in. Harvard ’13 Parker reminded applicants that the GMAT is just one piece of their application … and that the show goes on. Anderson ‘13 Random Wok also reviewed Clear Admit and Beat the GMAT’s new video courses.
NYU ’12 Nistha announced she was taking a break from her studies in favor of firsthand work experience. Kellogg ’12 Jeremy wrote a post specifically so he could share an inspiring video about leadership. INSEAD ’11 V. explained the importance of staying fed during an internship. Fuqua ’12 Vince reflected on how the world is shrinking. MIT ’13 Paul expressed frustration in his financial aid office’s technology transitioning growing pains.
