I came across this awesome post http://missmba.blogspot.com/2008/07/advice-from-not-so-wise-ex-b-school.html . It says the same old stuff. That thought is friction. Don’t just sit there and ponder about the amount of work to be done. Do the work. Read like crazies through the blogs. Work ceaselessly on essays till you get very…very tired and then just fall asleep. If you get extremely stressed and insomniac, devote a couple of hours to the gym.
