Yesterday I received two e-mails saying I was invited to interview at both MIT and Tuck. It was a very exciting moment, since it meant I am one step closer to the goal of getting admitted and it is also encouraging that they think I am worthy of further consideration. That I am in the mix, in other words.
However, after an initial moment of joy, I started thinking about preparing, and preparing throughly. Following a somewhat relaxed wait, now I am truly nervous as those interviews will happen in a two-week period from now and I feel I still have plenty to do. The good thing is that I won´t have to travel for this two: MIT Admissions team will come to Madrid and Tuck will be a video-interview.
I think one of the key aspects of the interview is to remain as calm and confident as possible. Of course, some last minute nervousness will be on the menu, but in the end you just have to picture yourself and speak about your experiences, you just have to do it in a complelling and clear way. Therefore I think my aproach will be “let´s shine”. The rest is out of my control.
Regarding Duke-Fuqua and NYU-Stern, I believe it won´t be until mid November that I will hear from them. I am confident I can get invited at Duke as I think the fit is there and I did my best to show it. But for now, let´s focus on the tow I have already been invited to and to start working a little bit on my R2 strategy.
Wish me luck!
