I have the first deadline of the recruiting season tomorrow and I haven’t even started on the cover letter yet. The finals are approaching and I am pretty clueless about what’s going on in Finance and Optimization. I know I can catch up but I need sometime for that and I don’t see any readily available time slot in near future. My kitchen sink is getting flooded and I can’t quite figure out why. My roommate and I haven’t taken out the trash in a long long time and I don’t know when are we gonna do that. I feel that I am lagging behind everyone in networking and have so many emails to write and phone calls to make to make-up for that. Although all my classmates are super-nice people, I see the niceness subliming from some of them and that doesn’t feel good. I am fat but I never make it to the gym. My schedule is crazy and the one thing I fear the most is myself…the fact that I may not do my best and lose out on things I can get.
This makes me very tired and sleep deprived. This is what I was looking for when I decided to come for an MBA. The zeal to succeed, to push myself beyond my limits and see how far I can go. And am I enjoying every moment of it?? Absolutely !!
PS:-Whoever tells you that the tough part of an MBA is getting in is lying. When you are awaiting the decision from the adcoms, you have almost nothing at stake. You just are presented with the choice to make that leap of faith. MBA recruitment is the time which decides whether your leap of faith is going to turn into a blissful flight or a nasty fall.
