Iâ€™ve lost count of how many times Iâ€™ve said that and as you can probably tell, essay writing is draining the life out of me.Â Thereâ€™s an obvious negative correlation between the amount of admissions work Iâ€™m doing and the number of blog posts I write.Â I wonder if this will be the last post of the year?
Iâ€™m starting to look forward to when my life will get back to normal.Â No more heading straight from work to the library to write essays.Â Actually seeing the inside of a gym.Â I just to need to hunker down and bear through the pain for a few more weeks.
I feel my essays have gotten better over time.Â As you write you get new ideas and new feedback that just makes them better.Â Iâ€™m not sure how this bodes for the one Iâ€™ve already submitted, but hopefully this is good for my future apps.
As I get close to January, Iâ€™m going to make sure I have time to â€œplate.â€Â If any of you watch Iron Chef or Top Chef, like me, youâ€™d know that the â€œplatingâ€ or arrangement of your food is almost as important as the taste.Â When it comes to MBA admissions, I consider plating the process of filling out the admissions form.Â Each application has a ton of free form fields that require the same level of attention as your essays.Â With my Haas app done already, I feel Iâ€™ll be good shape for doing this on my subsequent apps.
Iâ€™m approximately two weeks away from my first big deadline and overall, I feel Iâ€™m in good shape as it approaches.Â Though the emotional swings of confidence and weakness can be pretty rough.Â I have two three day weekends to work with and eight essays to write.Â Two of those are optional and two of those I already have a good start on.
