6.5 years at Deloitte. 710, 3.6, white male. Accepted at Vandy (full tuition), Tepper ($$$) and Fuqua ($) WL at Ross, Darden Still waiting on McCombs and Kellogg Assuming I don’t get Kellogg and my WL don’t turn into offers (seems HIGHLY unlikely given how many seem to be WL), I’ll go 1/4 on T15 or better, but 2/3 or 3/3 or my T20/25. Not sure how I would have fared in a “normal” year, maybe one more acceptance at a T15? I wouldn’t expect my profile to get me into an M7, but maybe I’d have a better chance at sneaking in than I will this year? Really hard to know. Getting Fuqua today was huge for me. I’d be screaming about this slaughter this year for sure if I struck out at all my T15’s. Thank you for coming to my TedTalk

I’m trying to make the jump from agency > platform (not FB…more like Spotify or Twitter etc.). I work with reps at these places as part of my job, but technically their loyalty is to my clients (the ones spending $ on their platform), not to me, working at the client’s creative agency. So it feels weird asking them for a recommendation or referral, but that would obviously be easier than applying on the jobs site... How do I utilize my “network” without making things awkward?
