Here comes the sun

So, this is shaping up to be one of the most important weeks in my – and most of my fellow applicants – lives! MIT Sloan and Wharton, along with a host of other top U.S. b schools, are releasing their decisions for R1!

The blogosphere has been very quiet lately as we all wait patiently, perfectly calm and keeping busy with other things for that admit call that doesn’t really mean that much, right? 🙂

You know, I’ve been through this before: the fear in the pit of your stomach; the obsession with forums in case someone already heard something; checking your application account every day for a random status update.

All these symptoms are normal by the way, and I just want to let you know: everything’s going to be alright, one way or another.

My world turned upside-down last year when I got my five dings (after being invited to interview at two schools – those hurt the most!), but I learned a lot about myself and what I really wanted to do with the rest of my life.

I hoped to use that knowledge and prove to the schools that dinged me that I was a serious candidate, I knew what I wanted and they’d be dumb to ignore me twice. But, it won’t necessarily work out that way. We’ll see this week.

Luckily, I also know that even if I don’t get into b school I’m still in control, I’ve started my journey and, while nobody said it would be plain sailing, I believe in myself and I have a renewed fire in my belly!

So, try to keep sane folks and wait for the sun to rise and shine over your life plans. I’m thinking of you and hoping to be on that MBA journey with you too.

Special mentions to my fellow bloggers who are also on this journey: blackgirlmbaoncampus, EF Essays, financefurry, GNPTH, Grant Me Admission, Importunate MBA, John Thunder MBA, Let’s Simplify, MBA on my Mind, My Journey to Business School, My Life Of Bliss, Naija MBA Gal, Pro GMAT, Pulling That MBA Trigger, Road To My MBA, sarah’s mba journey, still pressing, texaswannabecali and under prescription.

Keep in touch guys. Let me know how you’re doing!

And, good luck to everyone this week!

    Keep your thoughts positive and regardless of the outcome keep a big picture perspective in mind. If things don’t go well it is their loss, but I expect good news from you. All the best!

    • You are right! I don’t think many b schools will be crying over their “loss” though; there are just so many talented applicants out there, but I’m definitely keeping my thoughts positive.

      Waiting to hear about your next steps too!


    • I hope we do! It seems that it becomes a lot more difficult to do this once you start your MBA (so much to do!), but there’s a fair chance we’ll be classmates at Sloan 🙂

      Fingers crossed for you too!
