Applications Open for the 2011 Beat the GMAT Scholarship

Beat the GMAT is holding its annual scholarship competition once again.  As some of you may know, BTG assisted me early on in my application process, by giving me free access to the BTG Practice Questions.  I definitely would not have scored a 750 without this help and I’m proud to promote BTG’s efforts for social impact.  If you have any interest in applying for an MBA this year, I definitely recommend applying for this scholarship.

Sell Your GMAT Books on Amazon

Six months after taking the test, I’ve finally sold all of my GMAT books to Amazon.  Selling these books was just one of those tasks that was difficult to prioritize with essays and interviews hanging over my head.  I now no longer have that stack of GMAT books sitting in my apartment staring back at me.

Anyway, as I was perusing Amazon a few weeks ago, I noticed they had a textbook buyback program that included the MGMAT books.  Note that the end date to this offer is May 31 of this year.  I buy from Amazon at least once a month, so getting Amazon credit for my books is as good as cash.

Too School For Cool

Remember what I said about not sacrificing my social obligations for b-school anymore?  Well… To be honest, things have been better.  I do get out more and don’t always feel like a hermit.  But I still find myself in the middle of the library in front of a laptop most nights of the week.  I … Read more
