So as you can see, we have been pretty mute this month especially since B-school application process is in gear.
Now that all my applications have gone live, I’ve reached out to all my recommenders and provided each school their email addresses. I already had one recommender email me and tell me she is almost done! And I had another one finish! (note: The schools didn’t send me a notification that he was done..so FYI check your apps often!) I was NOT expecting my recommenders to be this quick since I told them Dec 1 for all recs. So NOWWW this weekend I need to source out some thank you gifts. Also, does this mean I may make R1 for some schools? I’m debating that right now.
Also, I have some good news! (for me at least)….I got into the diversity weekend I applied to! Yay! I was worried because the resume I submitted wasn’t the one that I just revised (for the 10th time). So I was stressed out about that. Nonetheless, will be at Stern next month. Now I’ve got to figure out these logistics….
I also, registered for another diversity weekend at Kellogg. So I have that on my calendar now and looks like I’ll be there as well. I now have to reach deep deep into my network to find someone to crash with…yet some more logistics.
Finally, my suspicions were verified. I’ll be doing another long trip for my company. This will be both good and bad. It’ll put me closer to some schools that I would like to visit, but also I’m nervous if it will impact my deadline for business school or hinder my chances of being able to attend diversity weekends. Also, I don’t want the quality of my work to be affected since my trip will be fun yet have some aggressive deadlines.
Also I visited Ross last week...so I will be doing a recap on that next :-)
More to come!

It's a been a while since I had the chance to write. Looking back at the dates the last post I wrote was August 8th! This is the last time I let that much time go by. Sooo looking back at my Bschool-checklist I made in July, lets see what I have accomplished and how much I have to go
GMAT Address any gaps I see in my profile -by this I mean if I'm weak on volunteering, get involved in something I'm passionate about. Set budget and save for bschools application process Research schools Finalized schools which I'm planning on applying too Revise resume and getprofessional feedback on it - I only put this as 1/2 done b/c I would like to go through another round of professional feedback Think about and finalize recommenders list Decided which recommenders will do what school Make timeline of application deadlines and plan for execution- I have my deadlines set but no plan detailed plan of excution. Just trying to knockout essays.
