Welcome back to another edition of Stacy Blackman’s B-School Buzz! With Round 1 deadlines just around the corner at many of the top programs, applicants are busy honing their essays and corralling recommenders right about now. Read on for advice that every b-school aspirant can use.
From MBA hopeful to school-sponsored blogger— Oh, what a difference a year makes. From yearning to be in business school, Ellipser now shares the exciting news that he has become an official Johnson School student blogger! We look forward to reading more of his “official” posts from the other side of the b-school journey.
B-school is not one-size-fits-all–With the countdown to the Round 1 deadline just a week away, The Phoenix shares an extremely favorable impression of the Kellogg School of Management information session he recently attended, as well as an explanation of why Chicago Booth isn’t a good fit for him. Now all that’s left to do is finish polishing those essays and nudge any recommenders still dragging their feet.
Building your network before b-school— This week, MBAChic features a fabulous guest post on networking authored by Jenn Yee, founder of MBA-social.com. Yee asserts that the best time to start networking is the day you find out you’ve been accepted to business school, and she offers four compelling reasons for getting ahead of the game in this area.
