Oxford! Assuming, of course, that they actually DHL me the promised paperwork and whatnot. After my pretty-good interview with Professor Westbrook, I waited with bated breath, chewing my nails to the quick (and beyond), thinking how much I wanted to go to RSM Erasmus. And I did.

Well, I made it to DC, didn’t get lost in its confusing street system (though I’m really glad I went down a half hour early– 15th Street NW skips over a block, and it just happens to be the block the Metro station comes out on versus the block the Sofitel, and my interview, was […]

ESADE has, after careful consideration of my application materials, decided to invite me to interview. This will be my first. They’re definitely high on my list of choices. It is scheduled this Thursday (22nd Feb, 2007) at 0830PST, so send out some good thoughts. Please.

Obligatory introductory message: I’m getting ready to give up my cushy interesting position in a growing, solid company to do a complete career change. I’m going to *gasp* leave San Francisco and move to Europe for a year or more. I’ve been reading blogs of several people who are currently in MBA programs that I’m […]
