About Me


Grant Me Admission

I am a twenty-something corporate finance strategy analyst that works in the entertainment industry (with experience in sales and the manufacturing industry) in the United States.  My goal is to get into the right top tier MBA school for me and my goals, and to help others do the same by providing a one-stop shop of amazing resources! Ultimately, I hope to transition into the consulting industry in management consulting, and continue working across industries to understand applicable leadership best practices.

I have done a TON of research and hope to provide a guide of free/inexpensive help to those that need it.

I will be populating my blog with links to great articles, crudely made infographics (and professional ones made by others), my analysis, and my perspective!

I hope you find this helpful on your journey!

    Hello! Just dropping in to say hello. I follow your blog regularly and haven’t heard from you in a while! Would love to hear about where you are in the journey. I am a fellow R2 applicant and enjoy reading your posts.

    Best, Mandy

    Have you thought about applying to a safety school for round 3? Or a couple top 20 programs? When first applying a couple years ago I went for all top 10 schools and didn’t get in anywhere. Then when it was all over I was really disappointed I didn’t try for at least 1 top 20 school. I kept thinking I would just apply next year if I didn’t get in, but when it came down to it I didn’t want to wait another year.

    Think about it.

      I did apply to Yale which is a top 20 school (although the rankings have been adjusting). Ultimately I will diversify my applications more next year. I just started a new job, so I will not be doing R3. Thanks!

    Who did you plan to pay full price for MBA? Do you have resources besides large loans? It seems these top tier programs benefit when a candidate not only can write a check, but have resources to follow their own potential start-up afterwards.

    Hey, keep your chin up. Just about every success story demonstrates that rejections can be used as touchstones for growth.

    Personally, whenever my hopes seem dashed I take solace in family. Never fails to cheer me up.

    Hey man, I just read an article about you in Forbes. Good Luck! You have put in a lot of hours and hard work and it is bound to pay off. Wishing you the best!

    Dude you’re wasting your time trying to break into the rich white man’s world by playing by the rich white man’s rules. BTW this is coming from a middle class white man. Stop wasting your time. Do something truly productive with your life.

    Those MBA programs won’t teach you anything you can’t learn in a book. The only thing you get is recruiters looking for drones to fill the upper-middle ranks of their companies.

    You’re spending all this time effort and energy to try to fit in somewhere when you could actually do something productive with your life.

    I am surprised why you have never considered Booth ? Any particular reasons why ?
