Hello and welcome to Fridays From The Frontline, Clear Admit’s weekly blog post featuring the latest news from the b-school blogosphere. This week the crescendo of R1 deadlines resulted in a number of applicant bloggers celebrating the successful submission of their applications. Meanwhile current students recounted their on-campus experiences.
MBA My Way expressed displeasure with her performance on the video element of her Yale application, but did provide a few points of advice for those yet to undertake it. HammO submitted his applications to Johnson, Ross and Wharton and planned on putting the finishing touches on his Tuck, Darden and Fuqua materials over the next few weeks. TimBob was on the verge of submitting his Wharton application, though held off until he was certain his recommenders completed their portions. MBAGirlJourney described how her MBA goals had changed or grown over the application process and happily announced that all three of her R1 applications were now submitted. Domotron waved goodbye to his Booth application and turned his attentions to his Tuck interview.
INSEAD ’14J Michele found herself and her peers halfway through their first period and briefly discussed topics including ethics and cotton subsidies. Wharton ’15 MBA Over 30 encouraged readers to listen to a recent podcast that would alert them to the blogger’s real identity and promised a more lengthy blog post covering his first few weeks of class and the recent news or Ankur Kumar’s departure from the school. INSEAD ’14J Pradyumna took part in the program’s startup bootcamp and shared some of his experiences from the two day event. HBS ’15 Keima described a typical start to a case study discussion and explained how an 80-minute class could fly by. Anderson ’15 Devon and a few fellow first years shared some thoughts now that orientation was officially behind them.
Kellogg ’14 Tyler briefly recounted his summer internship experience working for the Chicago Cubs. Kellogg ’14 Drew also gave a summary of his summer internship experience in Boulder, Colorado.
And that’s a wrap for this week’s Fridays From The Frontline. We hope some of the madness of R1 is behind our applicant bloggers, and that students continue to find their new courses and friends exciting. Until next week, have a great weekend!
