What happens when a language-loving, mathphobic liberal arts major jumps on the MBA train? Follow my adventures as I try to survive (and even thrive) at a top 20 business school and the business world.

    I hear that bricklaying and hod carrying are making a comeback. Maybe you should give that a try instead of grad school.

    I’m a reporter for a major daily newspaper and am thinking about applying to the MBA program at UVA. Would you mind chatting with me about it over e-mail or phone?
    I need to decide pretty quickly if I want to go for it since the application is due in a little over a week.

    I really like how articulate and easy-to-read your blog is. It would be great if we could get in touch just to share some ideas. I will start my MBA in November and I am currently writing a blog in the FT. Let me know if you have a couple of minutes.

    This is a wonderful blog! Reading it has answered almost all the questions I had about what it’s like to go to Darden as a woman with a non-business background. Thank you so much for sharing!

    Thanks Summer! Let me know if you have any other questions. … Are you a SCAD student? My brother went to school there.

    Great blog. I live in the West Coast and I know a lot of successful people who graduated from Darden. The school’s reach is definitely impressive.

    Thanks Mako! I’m glad to hear Darden has an impressive reach and a good reputation. Thanks again for reading.

    Dear missmba,

    I work with Aringo.com, one of the top MBA admission consulting firms.

    After following your blog for quite some time I thought we could post a link to your blog on our blog (blog.aringo.com) and vice versa, just as we already do with our partners GmatClub.com.

    Makes sense? Any other ideas for collaboration?

    I was just looking for a good read about MBA schools and thought your blog was great! Your experiences are very similar to the ones I’m going through just now and I just wanted to say thanks for sharing!

        Hey missmba,

        My name is Andres and I do online outreach for TopMBA.com I was wondering if you would be interested in guest blogging for us.

        TopMBA is an online resource for MBA applicants. We provide MBA rankings, event information, business school profiles, and MBA admissions advice. We also allow for interaction through our new MBA forum and blog. I feel that the TopMBA readers would love your writing style.

        Please let me know if you’d be interested in blogging for us. If so, you can contact me at andres@qs.com and I can send you a copy of the blogger guidelines as well as answer any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you.
