Admit One - My HBS Success StorySince I found out I’d been admitted to HBS in R1, others have asked me how I did it, how I got in. Usually, I say I hit refresh on my application status every 3 seconds until it changed to “admitted”. I hesitate to answer seriously because I don’t want anyone to follow my path as a blueprint for... 2 years 1 month
MBA Class of 2015 Roll CallFellow monkeys, With the release of R2 decisions this week for the majority of schools, I thought we'd start a thread for everyone that'll be matriculating somewhere this fall. Where'd you apply? Where are you in at? Where are you headed? 2 years 1 month

750 GMAT WriteupHere's a post-GMAT writeup I did back in April 2010.

What did you do with your car when you went to B-...Boston -> Sold my car. You can get around pretty easily on the T or a bicycle. Cabs when it's cold. Zipcar available on campus for odd trips. Parking on the street is hard to find, and parking spots cost an arm and a leg. 2 years 1 month

Would You Live in 400 sq ft If You Were Rich?Thanks for the post Eddie. This is something that has been on my mind a bit lately. Yes, I would gladly live in a 400 sq ft place supposing I'm single.
