Hello and welcome to Fridays From the Frontline, Clear Admit’s ongoing perusal of the latest happenings in the b-school blogosphere. This week applicants and students rang in the new year, and those working on their R2 applications felt the pressure rise.
Domotron asserted that more went right than wrong in his 2013, and wished all his readers a happy new year. Ellie returned from a three week visit home to India and refocused her attentions on her upcoming Ross, Kelley and Kellogg applications while expressing much gratitude for the support of her husband. TimBob also had a wedding on his agenda – his own – and outlined a few different resolutions he’d like to realize in 2014. Sarah’s GMAT score improved though she realized her quant percentile might still be troublesome.

HBS ’15 Keima traveled to South America and shared a few photos of the beautiful sights he saw and prepared for his upcoming FIELD trip to Shanghai. INSEAD ’15 Nik prepared to depart the only burgeoning summer months of Australia for a decidedly more cold climate in France, but was quite excited about the new educational adventure he would soon find himself enjoying. Fuqua ’15 Trevor recommended that b-school applicants and students get accustomed to acronyms and discussed the school’s Week-in-Cities program.
