Accepted!

Geoff Wood

Despite my optimistic outlook on going back to school this fall it's never been a sure thing - until now.

When I recieved my acceptance to the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University(1) late this Spring it was dependent on successful completion of two prerequisites: Stat & Accounting. As I posted awhile back, the pre-reqs were a little daunting. However, I'm now very excited to say that I passed Statistics with a fat A- (92.57%) and, just the past week, passed Accounting with a slightly less exciting A- (90%). I'm not going to let the fact that both class were pass/fail spoil my enthusiam (A-'s weren't that easy to come by in my higher education studies to date).

The latter grade is particularly encouraging since the whole Europe trip happened right at the end of the session and I had 4 whole days to study and take the final upon our return. That final was a lot of fun (and 100% of the course grade).

No worries - real classes start next week.

(1)For some reason all MBA programs/students reference the business school name before naming the university, such as "The Fuqua School of Business at Duke University" or "Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota", and I feel no need to break the mold.
