关于我

2009年7月份,我给一个老朋友(Simon FT-MBA,2010春季班)为申请MBA而写的Essay提了几点比较关键的修改建议。后来,她成功拿到Simon的Offer。再后来,她建议我做留学DIY咨询方面的工作,并向我介绍了我的第一个客户。最终,我的第一个客户也成功拿到几个TOP16商学院的面试并顺利拿到Duke Fuqua商学院MBA的录取。 本人毕业于上海复旦大学管理学院国际企业管理系,属于商科科班出身并且做过管理工作、有领导经验的人士。

留学参考:MBA Angst: Coping With Dings & Waits

 


BY: JEFF SCHMITT ON MARCH 11, 2016

 

 

There’s nothing worse than not knowing. These days, many MBA applicants are still waiting, wondering what’s happening behind the admissions curtain. Drained and powerless – and facing only silence – some look for signs (and the meaning behind them). But most are turning to their peers to gather intelligence and find support. And you won’t find a better forum for that than Clear Admit’s MBA Livewire community,

Here, prospective students run the gamut of emotions. They rant, speculate, and console as they await the decision that, one way or another, will help them get on with their lives. Often, they use humor to bond.

A SENSE OF HUMOR IN TRYING TIMES

Some tweak the lyrics of their favorite songs to express their longing – or defiance. “I’ve had my dings… Time after time,” pens one applicant channeling Queen’s Freddie Mercury. “I’ve done my sentence… But committed no crime… And application mistakes… I’ve made a few… I’ve my share of dings kicked in my face, but I’ve pulled through!! (and I need to go on, and on, and on, and on).”

Others graphically depict the depths of their cynicism. “I heard they printed off all of our written applications, laughed at every one of them, then threw them into a giant bonfire,” snarls one disillusioned student. “So savage!!”

Of course, you’ll find a brave few who drolly come to terms with the futility of their situations. “I swear to God if I don’t hear from Haas this week……….. I’m gonna come back and check again next week,” cracks one applicant. And another simply found comfort in having his hopes dashed. “Finally got the ding! Feels like a burden has been lifted.”

Recently, Poets&Quants collected the funniest musings on Livewire. From tweedy dissections of Stanford’s favorite food question to a deranged outburst over receiving a rejection on International Women’s Day, here are some posts that’ll make you wonder just who your future classmates may really be.

Comical Lyrics Express Skepticism…and Hope

Hello from the outside. At least I can say that I’ve tried. But GSB, it don’t matter it clearly doesn’t tear you apart anymore.

But I keep cruising, Can’t stop, won’t stop moving. It’s like I got this music. In my mind, Saying, “It’s me, GSB, it’s gonna be alright.” ‘Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play. And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.

Wherever you go, whatever you do I will be right here waiting for you. Whatever it takes or how my heart breaks, I will be right here waiting for you.

Every step I take, every move I make Every single day, every time I pray I’ll be missing you Thinkin of the day, when you went away What a life to take, what a bond to break I’ll be missing you Ding, ding, ding…

Ever since I left the city you got a reputation for yourself now. Everybody knows and I feel left out. GSB you got me down, you got me stressed out.

Hello! Is it me you’re looking for? I can see it in your eyes. I can see it in your smile. You’re all I’ve ever wanted And my arms are open wide.

Hey Rod, don’t make it bad – Take a sad song and make it better – Remember we’re dying here in this wait, but with one quick update, then you’ll make it better – Better better better better better, WHA – Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Rod

And I think it’s gonna be a long, long time ‘Til a “News from MIT Sloan” email brings me ’round to find – I’m not the man they think I am – Oh, no, no, no – I’m a rocket man – Rocket maaaaan – Burnin’ out his fuse up here alone

Gallows Humor Softens The Ding

Note: Application status still listed as “Application under review”. No interview invite yet… Anyone else in the same boat?

NYC4: Same boat, and everyday the ship is taking on more and more water

China and India, the most doomed countries for MBA application hahaha

Losers, we have finished sending out interview invites and are waiting to press the button to make here a sea of red. Thank you for your interest in MIT Sloan School of Management.

What you going to B-school for anyway (asking respectfully btw)? They’re just gonna take your money and tell you sh*t you already know and have already done. I guess network but still…

Note: It’s so damn funny that these LGBTs get into every program so easily! Looks like there is no place for straight people anymore!

Anonymous: LGBT with 770 GMAT and 3.9 GPA here and rejected from GSB and Wharton w/o interview. I really don’t think it helps much, so relax. Not being white/indian/asian male helps significantly more.

 

Admissions Secret: Don’t Turn 30

Note: Who here is over 30 and invited/rejected?

@A: Similar experience here. Will be 32 this year, 3.6, 325 GRE, re-applicant at HBS, MIT, GSB. Dinged from those + Wharton Lauder.
A: 32 and 4 dings with one still up in the air, no invites.. gmat 730, gpa 3.8, 4 years of international experience and speak 2nd language. I would be very interested to hear where any older applicants had success and congrats to those who did! Hopefully after 30 tacking another year on for the next cycle makes no difference…
32: 32 and dinged
X: 30 and invited.
34: 34 and dinged
35: dinged no invite 750 gmat
Almost: 29 and 11/12 and dinged
another: 31 and dinged
30: 30 and dinged without invite.
31: 31 and dinged

The True Test: Stanford’s Infamous “Favorite Food” Question

Note: HEY GUYS i PUT TACOS AS FAVORITE FOOD ANY OTHER TACO POEPLE GET INVITES YET?

LOL: Crunchirrito here. Damn I should’ve fine with something from the Del Taco menu to make my profile more unique

RUMP ROAST 99: HEY ME AGAIN. CALLED ADMISSION LADY TO UDPATE FOOD TO QUESALUPA. PROBELLY ADMIT NOW FOR STANFORD COUNTRY CLUB. MORTAL LOCK

Not the Taco Guy: I went the burrito route

Anonymous: I had tacos as well……not a peep from them. I guess an honest answer isn’t creative enough.

WARNING: DONT DO TACOS FOR FAVORITE FOOD !!! NEXT TIME I DO HOT DOGS, GUARANTEE ADMIT! MORTAL LOCK

Circling The Black Hole

“It’s been 47 days.” The man marks off another day he spent on this island. Food and drinking water are running out. He doesn’t know how long the supplies can last. Hope is the only thing that’s keeping the man from going insane. Or is it actually driving the man insane?

Their admissions practice is making me seriously question their understanding and teaching of business. I am honestly so close to just withdraw because of their poor/vague/lack of communication, horrible marketing scheme, poor handling of technology, and lack of common sense that it has lost the luster that the “MIT” brand once gave. Easily the worst admissions process of top 15 schools by a huge margin. Congrats MIT.

There once was a fabulous b-school, Twas know for being so cool, I want to go there, If not all ill despair, Cause the GSB just makes me drool!

Just wakin up in the mornin gotta thank God I don’t know but today seems kinda odd No barkin from the dog, no smog And Bolton’s makin’ me wait soooo long

They say that time’s supposed to heal ya, But I ain’t done much healing…ding?

Is It Hope – Or Just Living In Denial?

Hello GSB, it’s me – I was wondering if after all these weeks – You’d like to meet

Rejected the same as everyone else. There’s a phrase that stuck out though in the rejection letter: “while we were suitably impressed by your accomplishments thus far…” Did everyone else’s letter say this? Coming from a literary background, it’s my habit to analyze every inch of a rejection letter for hints that they didn’t hate you.

I put my favorite word as “ding”, because I love how it sounds and I’m troubled by how it feels. That juxtaposition gives it a certain allure for me. Can’t you see GSB, I’m a weirdo and a poet, just what you’re looking for.

One Candidate Goes Completely Unhinged

Anonymous: So Stanford GSB waited for the last day to send women rejections as a present for Women’s day!! no wonder they have so few women enrolled. They are either utter idiots or just a bunch of robots who have absolutely zero social skills. no love lost there! (Editor’s Note: “Women’s day refers to International Women’s Day (March 8), which the writer describes as “a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.”

Anonymous: so Lol, I never complained about anything – I just pointed out that Stanford sent a rejection letter out on the International Women’s Day! which at the very least, it shows a lack of social and people skills. One has to wonder, what kind of management skills are they teaching people at GSB?

Lol: You’re complaining about bias against woman? Well then, I guess you must not know what it’s like to apply as an Indian IT male or Chinese finance male.

Anonymous: you lol have been misled by some comments here (Stanford reps? they never denied it) trying to muddle the waters here.. I am not really ‘complaining’ about anything. we in USA have the right to free speech – although as you can see, some people don’t really like that.. if you guys feel you are discriminated against, I think you should express your feelings. $250 is a lot of money and I think you are entitled to full disclosure. If they have additional selection criteria I think they should disclose it.

Also dinged: I was dinged from Stanford in R1 and waiting for the results from other schools. But, I really hope not to meet this stupid woman as a classmate. I agree that most women are still at disadvantage around the world. But Stanford GSB is accepting women which amount to 40% – they are not blocking women from entering B school, but just blocking stupid student like you. Do you think Stanford should keep all the rejection notice for women to Tomorrow? So silly.

Anonymous: and the real ‘problem with our society’ is that way too many men like you are trying to shut women up when they point to injustice! too many men like you call 40% parity. too many men like you are willing and ready to insult women any chance they got! too many men like you forget they have a ‘mother’ once they feel that bulge in their pants! I can keep going – don’t get me started with the ‘problem with our society’ because you are not capable of taking it.
