Popping the submission cherry

So I submitted my Kellogg apps a few hours away from the deadline.  That was stupid of me actually. I found some stuff I could have improved on.  At the same time, I was already obsessing about the tiniest detail, irking my husband to no end.  So I just decided to risk it…. I hope my application package still makes sense.  I was pretty confident about my essays, but then after reading them again, I found them a bit dry and lacking. Oh well, only time will tell.  Next step is to do the video essay

I also literally just submitted my Booth applications.  Good thing I was able to speak with a coworker who was an alum, she was pretty nice about talking to me about the process.  I also made the presentation instead of the essay.  Hope it pays off :p  I am counting down until October 24! Argh.


Where I’m At

So the first business school deadline is about a day away.  I decided to submit just three applications in the first round, and will probably do three to four more in the second round (depends on where I end up after the first round).  My first round deadlines are Kellogg (Sept 24 AKA  tomorrow AKA I should be panicking but I’m pretty zen about it), Booth (Sept 25), and Wharton (Oct 1).  A few months ago, the-me-who-didn’t-know-better was thinking of submitting 7 applications during the first round.  Big Ha.

After I submit the Kellogg apps I have to go through that whole video essay thing.  I know it should be “no sweat”, but it’s stressing me out! I have about a week to finish it, but I should aim to do it before the weekend, so I can take advantage of the office’s fast internet connection.

Crossing my fingers!!!
