Getting it Move

That’s a saying in Chinese. “Mister Simple moves the mountain” 愚公移山.  In western way you may say “there is a will there is a way” or “nothing is impossible with a willing heart”.

Now it’s my turn to get everything move forwards. MBA application is a tough job and in fact it took me more than one year already. Usually you need time to make up your mind and then there is a painful journey to finish your GMAT and TOEFL exam.  According to two of my friends, preparing the exam with full-time job almost kills them. Anyway i have passed that period even though I’m planing to retake my TOEFL to get a higher score. Then what’s next? To write the essays, which in fact is the most important part of the application and the key factor to get admitted to the school.  Different schools ask various questions and you can’t just simply copy and paste. Also the essays are needed to draft again and again until almost the last-minute of the deadline to submit.  Luckily later on you may have a few interviews among all the schools you apply. Congratulations.  In most case you actually have one feet step into the school. Now you need to search the interview tips of the particular school from internet or from current MBA students. But the advice is be well prepared and be yourself.  After that, the only thing you can do is to wait for the final result, either congratulation letter or rejection letter.

Now I’m running to essays from one school to another. Research of the school is very critical and the essay must show your enthusiasm of the school and how you fit to the program. In the coming month, i will update what i find out about different programs and their characteristics.
