Disappeared for long time. I was too busy working on the essays for these two schools, deadline fell on the same day. Barely submitted on time.
I wonder how so many people are managing their app process so well that they are submitted well ahead of time. But O'well, I am trying my best.
I showed my essays to current student in IIMA. He suggested some changes, but was very happy with the essays. In the end, ISB essays turned out well too. I do not think I could have done any better than that.
Writing for them turned out be pretty exhaustive. I have to start working on my US schools essays now.
Another thing I wanted to touch upon, Wharton was never on my list but somehow I am thinking hard on it. I am sure I cannot do its app by first round deadline, but probably will try 2nd round.
In the meantime, I attended mba tour in San Francisco and attended top5 info session as well. Good experience. Will write about them in some other post. Also, had chance to visit UCLA, although no class was in session and they do not plan to have anything before 1st round deadline, which seems to be crazy. Probably would submit my app without class visit. But the campus visit was very informative. Got some juice for my apps.
Now I am in look out for current and former students of various schools.
Let me know if you know anyone in haas, stanford or ucla.
