To give you a little background on myself, I am currently a Software Engineer with a small software company about 30 miles outside of Washington DC. I’ve got a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Princeton and a Master’s degree in Management of Information Technology from UVA. My ultimate career goal is to become the CEO of a Technology company and my current education hasn’t given me the business background to make that move, so I plan to get that background in business school. I could just sit back and get that knowledge through added work experience, but I’m on the paper chase and time is money, so I’m all about getting where I want to go as quickly as I can.
I started my application process back on July 4 by drafting a bunch of the standard essays that appear on most applications (Why MBA, Ethical Dilemma, Leadership experience, etc). That made things a lot easier once schools started releasing their apps in August because I could tweak what I’d already put together and customize them to what the schools wanted. I had to write plenty of essays from scratch, but it was a huge burden lifted off of me to have several of the essays already knocked out. I’m gunning for the first round for allof my schools so i can get this over with. So far, I’ve submitted my apps to Stanford, Harvard, and Fuqua and I’ve still got the Kellogg and Consortium apps ahead of me. Dang, I can’t wait until i’ve got these things all turned in. I just hope i get into soemwhere because I’ve put in too much work to get a bunch of ding letters.
Ok, I guess I’ll close this entry out because it is close to midnight and I’ve still got to put some work in on one of my apps before I crash for the night. i’ll catch you later.
