Motown - November/December Updates

Since I missed the boat on writing out my November updates I’m going to combine both month’s milestones. In November I had the chance to visit and interview with Kellogg which I recapped HERE. Then my work travel schedule finally died down which really helped me finally focus on essays. In my personal life, I had my wisdom teeth pulled which honestly knocked me out for a week for recovery and just celebrating Thanksgiving. In hindsight, I don’t know if I would do that all over again. As a lesson learned, schedule any medical/dental things BEFORE the height of b-school season (if you can…). I somewhat feel like I’m still catching up from that week I lost.

Anyhow, since Thanksgiving I’ve been in a hardcore essay mode. I was forced to modify my school list and reduced it to 5 schools. This past Saturday I started my Consortium school deck, which is my second to last school deck!!!! Just one more school and then I’m ALMOST done. There are still some small logistics I need to complete like sending off my GMAT scores and transcripts which is ON my to-do list this week. Also, all my recommenders got all their recommendations in (except one who will get his in by Christmas)!! So I’m really glad that burden is released.

I’m also still taking this self-paced financial accounting course. My final exam was two days ago….I’m glad its over. But I still have a class project hanging over my head due by 12/31. In hindsight, I really wish I took this course a long time ago, but due to some logistics I wasn’t able to.

More in my personal life, I ended up rescuing a kitten within the last 3 weeks. My coworker found a kitten at our job and had no one to take it in…so I took it in..which now adds another distraction to this somewhat stressful season!

Anyhow, once that is over I’ll be home in Michigan for the holidays while also trying to complete this homestretch of applications. In the midst of all of this some of my R1 friends have gotten acceptances to Booth, Johnson and Kellogg!! Congrats to them!!! I’m sure there are more acceptances but I’ve kinda been off the radar socially because I’ve been feeling so swamped…so please forgive my head and not my heart.

Also, my good friend MktgBadger will be discussing her journey from application to acceptance and pre-matriculation at Kellogg in an upcoming post. So PLEASE tune in for that. CONGRATS AGAIN!!!!!!

Anyhow – I’m sure this will be my last post of the year until I resurrect myself post-submission. So I wanted to wish you all Happy Holidays and GOOD LUCK submitting R2 applications!! You can do it!!!!

oh yes...and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!
