B-School Buzz: Juggling Commitments and Starting a New Journey

It’s been another busy week for our B-School Buzz bloggers as they’ve been continuing their GMAT prep and essay drafts, sharing new projects and offering advice to those still agonizing in waitlist limbo.

Not enough hours in the week — In this week’s post, Carl Incognito tallies up the hours required for his weekly commitments and comes to the realization that he might be taking on too much. As panic starts to set in, Carl admits he isn’t doing everything as well as he would like…which means something’s gotta give.

Words of hope for all those waitlisters out there — With many friends of his own stuck in waitlist limbo, Ellipsing My Way…To Business School urges those in the same boat to hang in there! Now is the time when people on various waitlists start turning down spots, which means places will be opening up soon. “Don’t get discouraged just yet… but also…don’t quit your job just yet!,” he counsels.

Back after a lengthy absence — Finally back to the blogosphere after a two-month hiatus, Unfathomable checks back in this week with some updates on his GMAT preparation, essay drafts for the Indian School of Business, and recent blogging nomination. The biggest application hurdle now: how to condense ones experiences and their correlation with future goals into just 300 words.

The start of a new chapter — After deciding to forgo business school for the next two years, Mukaam posts this week about formally becoming a 2011 Teach for India Fellow. Although the resources may be scarce, she finds great inspiration in the 13,500 children whose lives she and her fellows are about to change. Best of luck Saloni for an amazing experience!
