Birthday – TopDogMBA is 1 year old!


May 1st, 2015 – It’s one year since I started my TopDogMBA blog and what a year it’s been!

I had no way of knowing when I started TopDogMBA – heavily inspired by the likes of MBAOver30 – if my re-application strategy was going to be a success, but I was determined to go all out to get into a top 10 b school.

And now I can reflect on a year that’s literally changed my life, tested my mettle at every turn, but is a testament to overcoming the odds in the face of adversity. Plus I got a birthday endorsement from MBAOver30 himself on his blog site recently 🙂

Having received 20,000 hits to date, the real Top Dog (aka Beatrice) is having a little nap and dreaming of her trip to the U.S. this fall. We both look forward to meeting up with some of you who’ve followed my journey when we get there!

I’d like to thank all my readers for your support, advice and generosity during the past year. I hope that I’ve been able to help many of you in return who are or are thinking about applying to b school.

Keep in touch and stay tuned for more MBA application insights and candid talk on applying to your dream b school.

    Happy birthday! Thanks for this blog. When you are 35 and start preparing to GMAT all that you hear is “You are too old, it’s wrong and too late”
    And your blog is like a breath of fresh air.
    Thanks and Happy birthday again 😉

    I assure you that you have been more than helpful and inspirational for a whole bunch of people. Looking forward to hear more from you soon about the travails of matriculating.
