Two days ago I found out that I got an A in my Molecular Biology class. I was quite stoked. As I had received a B on the midterm, I knew I had some ground to make up. This class drew from Organic Chemistry, Genetics and Biochemistry and going into the class, I was shaking in my boots thinking that the students in the class were just going to kick my tail and send me running. I told my wife that I would show these youngsters that an older guy nearly twice their age still ad a brain.
I was glad to have done the review for the 20 students. I've heard from 70% of them now and am excited about how well so many did. My review group received nearly 30% of all the A's in the class. There were 2 B+'s 4 B's and a couple of C+'s.
So my plan over the next couple of months are as follows
1) Revise my resume and create 3-4 different versions to highlight my managerial, Project Managerial, IT Director and Program Manager aspects of background. I plan on creating 4 different Monster.com and hotjobs.com profiles to accomodate each resume flavor. Because of my background, the turn around time to pick up a job takes 1-3 months usually.
2) Finalize my Business App strategy this week.
3) GMAT prep. I'm planning on taking the test in the 1st of 2nd week of November.
Aregon did a great job of additional detail to the HBS info session we attended last night.
