The GMAT, the GRE, and me


September, 2022

“Hey Ben, why haven’t you posted anything recently?”

“Well, other-Ben, it’s because I was studying for and taking admissions tests for grad school!”

“Ohh cool, Ben! Congrats!”

Yep, you read that right. I, the one who’s always pushed back on every recommendation to get an MBA, am applying for grad school. For an MBA.

Why, you may ask? Well… work hasn’t been going great, and I’m hitting some sort of ceiling at my site. No promotions in view, no advancement to management… it’s time to shake it up, yeah? I’ve been here for almost 5 years, so I’m thinking it’s time to look abroad. Maybe find a school in the UK or something?

Yeah… we’ll see.

Anyways, I was studying a lot. It was rough. Then I took the exams – they were rough too… but I crushed them, so pretty proud of that. And both exams were at 8am, so I got up pretty early to be fully awake ahead of time… so I got to see some beautiful sunrises, and have amazing lunch afterward! Double-win!
