App 2 Duo!! Experience the power of TWO

Hey ppl,

Yessss, I managed to pull the seemingly impossible task of submitting two applications within 24 hours. My bank balance is considerably lighter due to this "App 2 Duo" effect (I urge Intel not to sue me for my pathetic attempt to impersonate the "Core 2 Duo").

In this festive season of free distribution, where you get offers like buy one get one free, I often wonder how gr8 it would have been for the credit card companies to announce such a scheme - "If you are submitting two applications, pay for one and get the other free"!!!
WOW.... That'd be some scheme.

I submitted HBS yesterday...... errr no today morning....... in fact I submitted them 5:30 AM today. Am I such an early riser?? Never!! I just didn't sleep last night!!!! I wanted to submit HBS by 12'O clock last night and go to bed. Instead, I found it extremely hard to let go of the love letter to my true love. Every now and then I would think that I can improve the app, but then after like an hour of staring at the screen, I would decide otherwise. What was more intriguing was the fact that I wanted to improve it further but didn't know how..... So, ended up checking the PDF version of the app a horrifying 17 times. Every time I opened it to see the app one last time, I thought I caught something fishy. I totally lost time-tracking ability (not that I had one in the first place...... but, well you get the point). Finally, I looked at my watch and CRAP.... it's 5.00AM!!!! I thought the batteries were dead. But I could sense some activity on the road. I cursed myself for my obsession and decided that it was time. The time to press the button had arrived.

However, HBS submission is a totally opposite end of the spectrum from Duke submission. I just wasn't ready to submit Duke as I thought my essays were not ready enough. But in the afternoon at work I realized that I cannot afford to miss a round only because of my perfectionist paranoia........ The essays were solid enough and I'm not aiming for a Pulitzer here, just a teeny-weeny B-school admit (yes, I love my hypocrisy!!). So, I telephoned both of my recommenders and told them to submit before nightfall, failing which they owe me a fortune..... :D ..... the threat worked perfectly and Recos were in by the time I reached home.

Worked on the final touches for three golden hours straight and pressed the button in the same flow....... It's all outta my hands now since two hours.........

My head is spinning from all these submissions........ Time to hit the sac......

Peace

WOW power leveling said...

Yes! Your blog is great, and I know something about the night elves, they are the race I WOW power leveling when I get my first account:The reclusive Night Elves power leveling[ were the first race to awaken in the World of Warcraft Power Leveling. These shadowy, immortal beings were the first to study magic and let it loose throughout the world nearly ten thousand years before Warcraft I. The Night Elves' reckless use of magic drew the Burning Legion into the world and led to a catastrophic war between the two titanic races. The Night Elves barely managed to banish the Legion from the world, but their wondrous homeland was shattered and drowned by the sea. I love this race and suggested everyone that start their WOW power leveling a rogue or druidof night elf
