    more impressive on paper than it is. I managed to get into a pretty flexible situation... I automated half of my work the last few years so my perceived output is 3-4x the others on my team. I'm allowed to do homework/study as long as I'm keeping up with my work.
    Only taking 2 classes at a time. Totally doable. 4.00 so far (but the grading is totally relaxed)

    I expect A LOT of rejections from those top MBA programs... it only takes 1 saying yes though.

    Sweet all the same. Hope it works out. It seems like it's a lot more difficult get the courses you guys want across the pond.

    The whole education system over there is a bit bizarre with all the applications and whatnot!

    I'm coming to the end of my Postgraduate course in Data Analytics, combined with my Business Information Systems undergrad,. Not sure what to do next whether to do another year to get a Masters, or whether to go straight into a job!

    Decisions decisions...this real life business is hard work.

    wait what whose getting old :D and ye serious stuff! nice one xlink on the achievements!

    I'm a graduate myself. Pretty much a cloud/solutions architect specialising in azure/aws and dotnet(C#) alongside the latest front end tech like react/nodejs/angular and so on!

    Pretty much a programmer & architect rolled in one at a tech firm :D Quite enjoyable & good pay!

    Hope everyone is well!

    Ten years here as well B).

    Similar to xlink, I'm getting an MS at a very highly ranked university, and have a 4.0 as well. Not working full time though, so it's less impressive. I'm applying to medical school as well. So, so, so many more years of schooling in my future.

    Edit: Thought of some more achievements. Have multiple publications in medical journals, along with plenty of poster presentations at well regarded medical conferences.

    Nooooooooo, xlink. Since you're employed full time, I'll still allow you to be in the cool kids club ;)
