I can’t believe (although I’m relieved) that the only thing separating me from being done with the Core is 1 measly little Statistics final! It’s actually not measly at all and will be quite difficult even though it is an open book exam. I just took my Strategy final today and my Finance final was on Friday. That Finance final was crazy difficult. I looked at the information and said to myself “um… what in the world is this?” The cheat sheet that I had did help, but the understanding that one needed to have in order to get an A on that exam definitely superseded my capabilities! I’ll keep my fingers crossed and hope that I did well enough! I did everything I could do so we’ll see. The Strategy final today was very ambiguous and I know that the grading is alway tricky, so that one can go one of two ways!
Other than that, things are just wrapping up now. I’m not sure exactly when I’ll be going home for winter break. It will definitely be at some point this week though! Some of my friends from school will be in the city on Friday, so we’re definitely planning on going out having a great time. It’ll probably be much of the same conversations just in a new location – unless our other friends come out too.
We’ve all worked hard this semester and are starting to realize that it’s coming to an end. The thing that really facilitates the realization that the Core is done is the fact that prospective students are being admitted now! I’m getting emails from people who I’ve helped with essays and just had conversations with saying “I GOT IN!!” I know the mass influx of acceptances will happen in January during R3 decisions, but as a 1st year it’s definitely a jarring experience to now have our conversations here at school and in clubs revolve around “the class of 2014.” Last year at this time, I was studying for the GMAT (STILL) and working on my essays so these newly admitted students are definitely in a much better position than I was in at this time last year. They can enjoy their Holiday and not have to worry about essays and all that other jazz.
I’m going to make this blog post short because I have to do some more laundry, do some more company research, study for Stats exam and clean my apartment because I have a prospective student staying over my place tonight who will be interviewing tomorrow!
If there’s anyone out there who would like for me to review their essays, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include a short paragraph about yourself and what you want to do as well as your resume. You can send me essays for any school.
