Finally, took the bold step!! Turned down the admission-offer that ISB had for me. The reason I am calling this as a bold move is that I have still not figured out the finances for Emory completely. ๐Ÿ˜ Was busy in some other important tasks and have not taken any step on working on this […]

So it was the day for my second MBA interview. Strangely enough, I had not felt any nervousness till the day before. But as I got up in the morning, I had started feeling anxious about the interview.
