It always feels a little bit like Christmas morning when my students start receiving acceptance letters, and MBA "admit season" is my favorite time of year--at least when the news is good. I work with a lot of great people who work like crazy to achieve their goals, and watching them succeed is one of the best parts of my job as a GMAT tutor. I've heard some great news from some very deserving people already this season, but one stands out, even though I did relatively little to help his candidacy. My friend Hari (please visit his blog if you haven't already) probably put in more hours of research, studying, and writing than anybody I've ever seen. He did everything humanly possible to achieve his MBA goals, but still received a disappointing (and incomprehensible) string of rejections a few months ago.
Well, Hari finally got the admit that he so richly deserved, and he's headed to IESE in Spain this fall--one of the world's best business schools, and one of Hari's top choices.
Congratulations, my friend. You absolutely earned this.
