Recommendations on their way and off to the pub:
The laundry list of what I did today:
1) Went through various blogs - Axechick, techiedude and the immortal - Tad Holbie. Axechick is going great guns.
2) Talked to one of my recommenders for the first time. He is a super boss. He says he is happy to give me the reco, and is even ready to write different answers for different applications. Considering how busy he is these days, I guess he might skip night sleep to write my recos. Nevertheless, a wonderful gesture on his part.
3) Went through some of the essay websites on web. Well, most of them reiterate what I know already, I think i would stop doing this now.
4) Discussed the theme to be portrayed in the Wharton application with a friend. The essays are too bland, and need to be spiced up.
Going out to a pub with friends in the evening. Byfar the most exciting thing today :):)
