Sure, that color-coded Excel spreadsheet you built to track your essays and deadlines is not ideal, but dammit you’re going to be an investment banker some day and you live and die by MS Office. You built that model without even touching the mouse.
And yes, the prospect of keeping track of dozens of essay drafts and revisions scattered across email, memory keys and two laptops is no fun, but you’re responsible. You’re organized. You’ll find that to-do list that you left in your coat pocket that night before that second (third?) shot imbibed to drown the anxiety of whether or not School X will return your love.
But seriously, stop.
The first step is recognizing that you have a problem. And staying organized as you apply to business school is, or will be, a problem. Unfortunately, most people don’t realize this until it’s too late.
It all seems manageable until suddenly you have a tough stretch at work just days before a big application deadline, you forget to remind your boss to write your recommendation, and you notice that you almost uploaded your Wharton essay to your HBS application. Not to mention, the office scanner is not working and you really don’t have time to schlep to Kinko’s to get that transcript scanned.
That’s when you suddenly feel overwhelmed.
Don’t let this happen to you.
Applying to business school is a major step in your professional path, and you need to equip yourself with the right tools to set you up for success. You’re going to be extremely busy writing essays, studying for the GMAT, and putting together the best possible applications — not to mention juggling the responsibilities of your day job and extracurricular activities. Oh and friends — yes, you likely have friends and a social life too.
