Acceptance: Sent Back Form
Today I sent back the required form, two pictures, and check for a deposit on tuition. Hopefully this will arrive before the end of the week and my spot will be secured. Now I just have to wait to see what is next.
Thanks for reading. I've decided this blog is finished. It has served its purpose for me and I hope others will find it useful as either a reference for their own research into MBA degrees or for nostagic ends as they remember their own past journey through an MBA program.
