Fridays From the Frontline: In the Thick of It

Fridays From the Frontline is Clear Admit’s weekly summation of posts from the business school blogosphere. This week, applicants are in the thick of things, submitting their applications, doing interviews and even hearing back about their results, while current students offer thoughtful takes on their time in business school.

Among current applicants, Pullingthatmbatrigger lets us in on his approach to writing business school essays, and also reports that his interview at Fuqua went smoothly. Along the same lines, Roadtomymba enumerates the criteria he used to select his recommender, while Grantmeadmission shares individual thoughts on his five different applications to top business schools. Also completing an interview this week, Scottgduncan summarizes his experience taking the Kellogg video essay, and received word that he was deferred to round 2 at Harvard Business School. In other news, Texaswannabecali stresses out about a spike in her workload and postponing her GMAT, although we are sure she’ll pull through. Also facing a tough decision, Coffeebeansandtealeaves was just offered a promotion, but it could mean staying at her company for a full year and postponing her MBA plans. Finally, Efessays continues a virtual lesson on international taxes which draws on a seminar he took recently.

Switching gears to current students, instead of feeling fully responsible for your performance in interviews, Rohan Rajiv, a first-year at Kellogg, recommends considering about other variables like the personality of the interviewer and the culture of the company. Furthermore, he wrote a thoughtful post about seven different priorities that students juggle during their time in business school.

That’s everything for this week. Good luck with your applications, and be sure to tune in next week for more news from the business school blogosphere!
