This is pretty cliche, but I received an e-mail from Cornell yesterday and my heart leaped with nervousness. It turned out to be an e-mail about preparing for financial work. It's kind of confusing because I thought I wouldn't receive any such e-mail until an acceptance. I'm assuming that everyone get's such an e-mail whether accepted or not.
Even Tuck sent me a follow-up e-mail about additional financial paperwork needed for submission by March 31st.
If anyone could shed light on the Cornell thing, I would appreciate it.
Anyway.. waiting is creating a bit more nervousness in me, but what else can I do? Life goes on. I've been occasionally thinking about my app strategy as well. But the thought that runs through my mind is not so much, "what do I need to improve my reapplication next year", but rather... "what am I doing in my life that shows how serious about my future endeavors that an MBA will help". That seems to be the bigger question and the right one in my opinion. Forgetting the opinion of any B-School admissions committee, my career progress is my responsibility and my attempts at progress is a reflection of my seriousness and motivation to do significant things with my life.
