  8. Hi Timbob. I just want to congratulate you and thank you for your insight on your blog. I’m a fellow Brit, albeit working overseas, and really connected with your rollercoaster account of events!

    I had a ding from HBS but waiting on a decision from MIT Sloan. I have two or three schools lined up for round 2, for which I have written everything but the essays! Your tale about the tyre change put this into stark context; I am really struggling to write the essays but have played out almost every scenario imaginable in my head (walking the dog really helps for this).

    I hope that I might see you in Boston next fall (got to get used to calling it this!). I am sure you are going to have a great experience. I did go to Boston/Cambridge to check out the schools and they are both (HBS and MIT) excellent and (I think) offer courses in each other’s programmes too.

    Enjoy a pint on behalf of your comrades struggling to complete their applications in the meantime!

    All best,

    • Hi David,

      Well I’m glad you enjoyed the story – I didn’t really at the side of the motorway! Good luck for your remaining applications. Reach out if you need anything, I’m certainly keen to increase British representation in Boston, my priority as soon as I get there will be somewhere to watch the football!


  9. Hello Tim,

    Love your work mate! Reading your blog has sort of given me a heads up on what to expect as I prepare to begin the process this year. I’m based in Sydney and can relate to some of the “challenges” as an international application.

    Was hoping if I could reach out to you (a short email ?) with a few naive questions for which I haven’t managed to find answers (atleast nothing clear!) on the internet.

    Good luck with the wedding and Harvard!
