Resume done!! TOEFL's next... bring 'em on!!!!!

Hey ppl,

Thanks to your support, I've finalized my resume. I think that the resume will be the only thing constant between all applications. But I am unsure even on this...... I mean, won't it be great if I can tailor my resume to every specific program. But then again, a resume is a collection of bullet-facts which can't be "tailored" per se....... In conclusion, I don't know what to do next on the resume front. But for now, I'm satisfied with the shape it has taken. Detailed yet specific yet comfy-spaced, I like it. Also, the facts I jotted down for my resume but couldn't fit in due to space constraints would now form a part of my essay fodder for thought...... lol.....

The TOEFL exam is on coming Saturday and I dont know what's gonna happen. Yes, people tend to think less of the TOEFL but when you have a minimum 109 to achieve, you tend to get a bit jittery since it's your dream school (read:HBS) hanging by that magical number. And recognizing the fact that i get stone tongued in the speaking section, I am especially worried. In more ways than one this is a strange revelation. I have absolutely no problem talking to a real person either on phone or face to face in english, but when you have to stare at the screen and look at the 45 second timer run out while speaking sense and not blabbering, it tends to be a bit difficult. Leaving speaking aside, I am confident about other parts of the test.

But knowing that your speaking section practice is waaay lagging behind and still not studying even till a week before a standardised test is the mark of a first-class-procastinator. While we all procrastinate a bit, I am sure that few people can even think of reaching the high standards of procrastinating that I set and better each day :D .

On the essay front, shall start work on the HBS essays after Saturday (another way to procrastinate, since we all know that I'm not really gonna study for TOEFL properly...... but still, can make an excuse on the HBS essays due to this event...... :D).

Can anyone share any last week pointers on the speaking section?? Shall be helpful-aplenty.
Peace......

toefl is the easiest exam ever, your only problem would be the excruciating urge to fall asleep midway through your toefl

Starwalker said...

toefl won't be a problem..... for me tho only problem was limiting the verbal responses within the timeframe. even though i didnt do well o that, i managed a 116, so that should not be a problem

Hello, I've enjoyed reading your blog, and I've got some information that might be helpful for you and your readers.

I’m a 2005 graduate of the Stanford GSB. A couple of weeks ago, I surveyed my classmates from Stanford, as well as friends and colleagues from Kellogg, Harvard, and Columbia business schools, and have compiled the results into an ebook. I had a lot more responses than I expected, so the ebook turned out to be over 80 pages!

I would really appreciate it if you could write a short blog post about the ebook with a link to www.ExpertCollective.com. Of course, it all depends on what you think of my ebook, so let me know if you’re interested in receiving a copy to review, and I'll email it out to you.

Let me know if I can ever be of any help, or if ever need a contact within the Stanford alumni network - I'd be glad to help out. I feel like I won the lottery getting into Stanford, and I'm always happy to help a future MBA out.

All the best,
Josh Hohman
