MBA Applicant Archive

I first started considering getting an MBA in the Summer of 2006, after realising that I needed to learn a lot more about business if I was going to realise my dreams of starting a successful company. In March 2008 I sat the GMAT after a haphazard canceled attempt 10 months earlier. I applied to Harvard, MIT Sloan, Stanford and Wharton in the Fall of 2008, thinking that I had a fair chance of admission at these schools. I was wrong. Thankfully, I had also added to the short-list a school that I really liked and, as they say in MBA lore, is a good fit - Kellogg. I was admitted to Kellogg in December 2008. These blog posts chart that journey and beyond.
