Second Place for Clear Admit’s Best of Blogging

I recently got an email informing me that I had won second place in Clear Admit’s Best of Blogging awards.  I was pretty shocked to receive this news given that:

  1. I didn’t know I had even been nominated
  2. I’ve been phoning it in on my blog for the past few weeks  😛

Thank you to all my loyal readers and supporters who looked past my slothiness and took the time to vote for me.  I promise you that more and better content will come soon.  This week marks the final week of the admissions cycle for me.  My final waitlist decision will come forth this Thursday.  And while I can sit here and blog about all the stress and ambiguity up to decision day, more than anything I just want this to be over.  No more decision trees about which side of the country I’ll be living on.  No more hesitation when saying which school I’ll be attending.  I need to move forward with my life, my career, and yes, my blog as well.

Back to Clear Admit’s contest, for getting second place, I won a free six-month subscription to either Business Week or the Economist.  (This can serve as incentive to any prospective MBA bloggers out there just starting right now)  I love BW and have subscribed before, but I’m thinking about giving the Economist a try this time around.

Anyway, congratulations to Richard from “Ellipsing My Way to an MBA” for winning first place, as he definitely deserved it.  Below is the full list of winners from Clear Admit’s website:

Congratulations! Definitely well deserved. Oh, and Economist is the way to go… I read the stuff on their site up to the limit of 5 articles a week, and I’ve been mulling taking the plunge and subscribing.

Hi there!

I’m a 2012 applicant and just started a blog. I was wondering if we could cross-link?
I already added a link to your blog on mine –> http://mywaytohws.blogspot.com/

Thanks in advance and sorry to post here but I couldn’t find contact info.

Good luck at Anderson!
