Slainte

Accomplishments on flight to Ireland: Have dinner while watching movie, sleep (it was an overnight flight)
Accomplishments on flight home: Have lunch while watching movie, sleep off Guiness-induced hangover.

As you can see, not much progress on the essays. One of my HBS recommenders did submit their recommendation though, so at least I have some feeling of progress. I really need to get moving on Chicago's essays so I can start drafting Stanford's. That is my goal for the weekend. Well that and enjoying the first week of football season.

The Ireland trip was a blast. We went to Johnnie Fox's Pub for their "hooley" night. It was amazing - great food, a live band playing traditional Irish music, Irish step dancers, and Guinness that flowed like water. I'd highly recommend it if you ever find yourself in Dublin.

Hey Mike Thanks! I am already feeling better and charged up again! Two days before I felt as if the sky will fall on me...

This is one roller coaster of a journey!

As far as the reccs are concerned I guess both these schools focussed on the things which all of us know by now.

" Your recommender should know you well..We don't give weightage to ranks but on the insights they offer about you.....Your choice of recommenders tells a lot about you..."

I guess you are doing very well with your apps. Best of luck- you sure look like someone who will defnitely get in!

Thanks Bokaa for the info on the reccs, and for the words of encouragement.
