GMAT, misc

Well, GMAT studies are moving along. I plan on taking the test on Nov 22nd. I booked the slot at I wanted to do it on Nov 24th, but they are completely booked in my area for the 23rd and 24th. I can't even drive 6 hrs to get to a location that even offers it on those days. Thanksgiving rush I guess.

At this point, I'm feeling scared, nervous, anxious and motivated. I know that's a weird cocktail of emotions.. but like I was telling someone today... that's about how I feel. Since I've already taken the test.. I sort of have this feeling of "I'll do my best." Other than that, there is no use sweating it. There was this girl at the library studying last week for the GMAT who took the test on Friday. I saw her in the library on Thursday night studying. I wanted to tell her to just go home and chill and rest her brain. It's very strange... over the last 2 weeks, I've seen about a dozen people in libraries and coffee shops studying for the GMAT. Occasionally, people will walk by me and give me a thumbs up and point at their copy the GMAT Official Guide.

Well, if you thought I wasn't blogging much lately.. for the next couple of weeks, I'll be blogging even less.

Best wishes to everyone on their interviews and that you all get into the schools you interviewed at! As far as I know, these are the Bloggers who have interviewed or will be interviewing at the schools listed below.

Dirty Martini - Columbia
BritChick -Wharton
Aregon-Michigan, Kellogg, Cornell
Wakechick-UCLA, McCombs, Chicago

Changing the topic now.....

I found the coolest free web service. It's a service that will go to whatever web site you put into the address field and it will tell you if any of the hyperlinks are broken. For me, this was a big time savings as my Blog is full of too many links and so is my FMR web page to manually audit to see if the links still work. This may come in handy for you. Hyperlink Verifier

Another application that I use is spybot. It's a wonderful application that is free. I installed it and ran it on my computers. It found so many spyware programs, removed them and immunized my computer from further problems with those particular apps. I run it every few weeks now as a matter of safe practice to make sure my computer is not full of junk that caused my computer to slow down and have excessive pop-ups like I was getting before. If you don't have this app... I highly recommend you get it immediately. Spybot for PC's

I just added google ads to the FMR web site. I'm attempting to earn some money to turn the web site into a non-profit setup which will allow me to move the web site to its own domain name and seperate it from my personal web site. I hope it works. Apparently GMATClub has had great success with this.
