London Business School Scholarship

They say lightening does not strike twice in one place. In my case, it did. I won a scholarship to London Business School last year, but I had to defer and also let go of the scholarship in the process. I re-applied again this year so that I could at least say, I tried. And then I won it again. It was such a blast when I got the email. The first thing that flashed crossed my mind was the fact that when I got the first ding ever, from Harvard Business School, I was sitting right in front of the same computer, on the same chair and in the same position as I did when I got the scholarship alert. The experience of the sinking feeling and despondence was in the extreme and opposite spectrum of what I felt 17 months after.

To top off the whole thing, I also landed a student loan from Prodigy Finance to complete the tuition. It was like a dream. I mean I am in far away Nigeria, and I thought I was fooling myself applying for a student loan. I had read about these loans and how you need to have a co-signer and stuff like that.

Applying to business school is indeed a roller coaster ride of emotions, and it feels really good to be on the high end of the roller coaster.

Despite taking a long break from business school and scholarship applications, the emotions never really leaves. It’s been months since I updated my blog. Seven months, to be precise, and I am a year older, a year wiser and a year more experienced. Finally, it looks like I am even more prepared for business school than I was last year. While my stats still seem a little bit short of the class average, the extra year wait has moved me a tad closer.

Now, I am looking forward the next phase of my life as the adventure in London Business School begins in exactly thirty nine days from today.
