The schools have been shortlisted, and the real work begins with some 25 odd essays to be written. I am applying at a mix of schools ranked between 10 and 40 by FT – and the ranking was not my criteria. Though required, I am amazed at the kind of questions that schools frame for the essays. Anyways – the deadlines are approaching fast with most round one deadlines falling in October. I hope I can apply to as many in R1 as possible.
Meanwhile, the MBA apping process does give you some rude shocks. Explaining to someone else your achievements is a damn tough task. I thought I had a good profile, and yet when I got down to making my resume, I could not even fill a page!! [And I have heard of people who need to cut down :(]
Hoping that the final result is better 🙂
