Fridays From the Frontline

Hello and welcome to Fridays From the Frontline, Clear Admit’s weekly ramble through the ruminations of the b-school blogosphere. This week, our stalwart applicants are continuing to filter their impressions of the application process, while contemplating what comes next. Current students are likewise contemplating how their lives have changed since starting business school, whether this year or last, and are looking forward to welcoming the class of 2016.

MBAReapplicant continued his streak of good news with admits from both Tepper and Darden. With a successful end to the reapplication process, MBAReapplicant can finally chose between several exciting options for next year.  Timbob, another class of ’16 successful applicant to Harvard Business School,  took a brief moment away from preparing from his upcoming wedding to share a post-decision publication timeline of events.  Much of it involved giddy celebration, and skillful procrastination.  Another across-the-pond blogger,  Sara’sMBAJourney, continued to share impressions of her trip to the States, including her enjoyable visit to Duke, as well as the terrible state of American roads and the terrible drivers on them.  Domontron continued his series on elements of an MBA application by addressing ways to research target schools. He highlights students blogs as an excellent way to get a more direct and unfiltered sense of the school’s community and opportunities. Your Fridays From the Frontline editor could not agree more!

Our final applicant blogger, MBATheNonProfitWay, stepped back to look at the big picture of life as an applicant and what lies ahead, with a thoughtful discussion of what to expect as an introvert entering business school, followed by a thoroughly entertaining listicle of 10 Ways You Know You Are a B-School Applicant, inspired perhaps by our own Buzzfeed style What B-School Are You quiz?

Continuing this trend of thoughtfulness, TwoYearsAtHBS posted a Dear HBS Applicants letter with very wise advice for both admits and those passed over.  If you were fortunate enough to be one of those admits, the post-admittance advice is certainly worth a read as well.  Over on the INSEAD student blog, Louise Ronnerdahl ’14J had a thoughtful essay about discovering herself and her career calling while in business school, while Sania Kudaibergen ’14D  is experiencing her first year at the speed of INSEAD.

And that’s all the news for this week’s edition of Fridays from the Frontline. We hope it’s not an April fools joke that spring weather is finally starting to arrive. We  also hope that applicants continue to update us with information about statuses and future plans, and that current students also update their blogs with the latest from their campus and classroom lives.
