DAK Video

My fellow Kellogg blogger, MBA Dutchie, posted up a DAK II summary that he spent a hell of a lot more time writing than I did. Wonderfully, he linked to a video summary of the weekend that the current students did (above). The video: Was shown to us at the end of the weekend Was… Continue reading DAK Video

MBAs in and out of the US

Take a look at the video which I was shown by my pal Steve (who’s also on the way to Kellogg).

Possibly the only useful article on the previous incarnation of this blog was this on, detailing how to pull GRUB back up under Ubuntu.

DAK II singing

This is fairly typical of how Kellogg DAK II was. At a little fair for all of the college clubs this group of guys pops out of nowhere and starts singing to us. WTF?

DAK II at Kellogg

I’ve recently come back from the DAK II event for admitted students to Kellogg. It was just freaking awesome. I think I realise now why I got into some schools and not others – the canny buggers in Adcom just knew where I’d feel comfortable.
