MBA apping

I had initially thought that I would document the entire apping process on my blog. However, after a lot of thought I have decided that it might not be very wise to do so.

I track a lot of blogs of MBA aspirants (will add the links to the sidebar soon), and feel that they are awesome places to look for wise words and help. However, I have noticed that they are mostly anonymous. I think that this makes sense in today’s digital world, where a simple Google search can reveal a lot about an applicant, and I do not want to stand any disadvantage due to something I post on my blog. Therefore, I have decided that, other that some gen things or occasional rants about the entire process, I would not be writing much about the process on my blog. At the end of it I might do a comprehensive post, but that is another story. Meanwhile do check out the blogs listed on the sidebar – they are awesome!!

I am right now in the process of shortlisting schools I want to apply to. I think I want to join a school that fits the following criteria:

  • Provides loans without co-signor
  • On campus study – I love being in contact with people
  • Should focus on Strategy (and probably helps some Biotech/Pharma/Healthcare related courses)
  • Should be fun!

I have kind of decided on 2 schools already, and I think I would end up applying to 3-4 other schools. Any suggestions are welcome. Also, due to all the apping work and a busy social calendar, posting will be very very irregular.

    Thanks Lol,

    I was actually browsing through loads of help and FAQ sections for this! Will try doing it the way you suggested.

    I know you, you are quite busy with the application process. No extensive advice rounds just a few tid bits.

    ISB is a good option, if you are looking at only a place with not much irregularities, being familiar (Hyd :)), and a fun place to be!

    However, If you target a US School, go for a place where apart from good exposure, you can feel comfortable. A supportive Indian community helps a lot, :)!

    Moreover, there are some colleges, where you can actually talk to the students and get a feel of the place (chat boards, or something of that kind).

    I was planning to apply last year, could not due to some reasons. There is a book called “Break the admissions barrier – Mohit & Hari”. If you can get your hands on it, I think it would help!

    ATB 🙂 hoping to hear a good news soon!
    Rock on! 🙂
