Hello and welcome to Fridays From The Frontline, Clear Admit’s diligent dive into the doings of b-school bloggers. This week many applicants were wrapping up their applications and recounting campus visits while current students caught up their readers on the ways they’ve spent the last few months on campus.
HammO visited Tuck during Dartmouth’s alumni weekend, which led to an extra special campus experience. Ellie experienced GMAT ennui. Domotron also visited Tuck and determined it was “awesome.” MBA Reapplicant submitted two out of his four applications and wished those still finishing up R1 applications the best of luck. MBAGirlJourney did not envy those applying to programs with video essay components, but welcomed thoughts or details about the process nonetheless. Sarah found herself sick as a dog in Africa, and very grateful for an English speaking pharmacist. TimBob attended a Haas information session hosted by Stephanie Fujii and presented his takeaways for his readers.
Wharton ’15 MBA Over 30 may not have checked in recently, but made up for it with a post that covered the academic realities of the program, benefits of a large class, sports activities and parties he’s enjoyed since arriving in Philadelphia. While his relationship was still very much solid, Yale ’15 Sassafrass did note that the b-school academic and social calendars will certainly impact an MBA student’s relationships. HBS ’15 2Y@HBS traveled to Cape Cod with his section mates and commented on the importance of this sub-group bonding experience.
LBS ’14 Samta expressed pleasure in hearing about how all the first years were adjusting to campus life before sharing a few words of wisdom on how to approach an MBA experience. McCombs ’14 Ivy touched on what it is like to be a 30 year old doing homework. Anderson ’14 Sunny made a list of things she was looking forward to in her second year. Kenan-Flagler Bridget wrote a piece about her Global Business Project in Brazil.
And that’s a wrap for this week’s Fridays From The Frontline. With the weather turning, we hope that all first year students thoroughly enjoyed their summer orientations and are ready for the more indoor weather days that will follow, and that applicants continue to manage their different application demands with aplomb. Until next week, have a great weekend!
