Hello and welcome to Fridays from the Frontline, Clear Admit’s ongoing coverage of the b-school applicant and student life. While much of the United States is under a deep freeze, this year’s applicants are starting to get news from their schools of choice, while current students are well launched into the new semester.
MBAMyWay got the eagerly anticipated phone call from Cornell. While delighted, it’s still a difficult wait for this non-profit maven to know what the financial aid package will be. FromGMATtoMBA took a winter’s journey to Chicago and blogged about the Kellogg interview experience. Sarah’sMBAJourney didn’t get a first wave HBS round 2 interview invite, and while not hopeful, is counting down to Friday to see whether there will be a Harvard and Duke invite forthcoming.

Sushant LBS ’16 takes some time to reflect on the meaning of LBS and how quickly the first two months have already flown by. Ahron HBS ’15 thoughtfully discusses the difficulty of transitioning from military to civilian life, and affirms that the MBA route is a great option for skilled veterans, while continuing, as we here at Clear Admit do as well, to thank all those who serve for the sacrifices they make on a daily basis. Over at McCombs student blog, Martha ’15 has some wise insights about advice she underrated in her first 18 months in the program.
CCatcher Tepper ’14 takes a moment to reflect on the quickly approaching successful end of the MBA journey.
And that’s all the news for this week’s edition of Fridays From The Frontline. As many of us in the US continue to battle winter, while appreciating the athletic skill on display for the Winter Olympics, we hope that applicants continue to update us with information about decisions and interview invites, and that current students also update their blogs with the latest from their campus and classroom lives.
