Yesterday was the day for my visa-interview and despite assuraces from everyone that it’s going to be  breeze, I was very nervous and apprehensive. A day before, i got all the documents ready , including a statement from CA, which I decided to add at the last moment. I was pretty sure that the statement was not […]

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. 😐 Was busy in some other important tasks and have not taken any step on working on this […]

Posting 3 days late */ Going through the life-cycle of a number of MBA applicants through their blogs, I knew that after getting the admits, the next wait is for the official confirmation in forms of admission-packets. It’s a bit strange that even in this world of web and […]

Well, in case the title made you assume that I have some good news to share, then Iam sorry for that. It’s just that finally I have decided that I am not going for any plan B (as discussed in this post ) at least for this year. For some schools that I was considering, […]

I submitted the Emory Appliucation earlier today.. Could not meet their recommended deadline (Dec 8 ) for international studdents. 🙁 My prcrastination and office-workload together share the blame for this. Even today, the application won’t be considered complete. My recommenders have got the links earlier today and in all probabilities would be submitting within next […]
