I studied for 6hrs every week day and 12hrs each Saturday & Sunday for 3 months last year. I had no life!

I realised if I wanted to get into the best business schools in the world I’ll have to put in the work.
But I kept seeing people with perfect scores get rejected by my dream schools. I was seeing Indians with a 340 GRE and 780 GMAT get dinged.

I realised that a high test score was not good enough to get me in. I had to be a well rounded person.
I remember sending my essays to this Kenyan VC guy who went to Stanford GSB and he sent it back with a shit ton of red lines and comments.

He said this won’t get you in. You need to show that you have actually created an impact in the spaces you’ve occupied.
