Today I took the GMAT and I did great! It’s a HUGE relief to have this over with… I have been stressing myself out over these tests – CPA exam and GMAT – since I graduated college in 2004. If I had only spent as much time studying as I’ve spent stressing, I would have had them all done a long time ago! Alas, I guess I just don’t operate that way. Next step: prepare 7 applications by December 28th.
Second piece of good news relates to flag football: we ended our 7 game losing streak on Saturday! We finish the season with a 1-7 record. The win should give us a good morale boost heading into the playoffs.

Apologies to my five or six readers for the lack of posts lately. I am applying to business school for Fall ’08 and it is an all-consuming process.
Yesterday I got back from North Carolina where I visited Duke’s Fuqua School of Business. I toured around, visited a class, and interviewed with a second year student. One thing that amazed me about the place was how genuinely happy and nice everybody seemed. Students and professors were all smiling and laughing. Of course, it was Friday so that might have had something to do with it. Still, I got the sense it was normal. I wonder if this culture is unique to Duke or if it’s the same way at a NY school like NYU or Columbia..
Either way, the visit has helped me focus on this goal. So, until Christmas, my primary life focus is on applications, GMAT until 11/19, and Flag Football.
