So after 10 years of no school, I have made the choice to go back to school and get an MBA. I have to first take the GMAT. The GMAT is a test on written skills, math and verbal communication. The test itself will take about 4 hours... if that wasn't enough to make me run for the hills well the practise math part was. If x=7+y and y=8-5x, then x is ?... I excelled in math 15 years ago in high school but now feel like I am back to learning the basics. I did get 55% in my practise test so I didn't completely fail but I do have a long way to go. I want to get a 600 or better on the test. (800 is the best you can do)
I am taking the test 9/13. I have a lot of studying to do. In the meantime I am also researching schools. I have three picked out. University of South Florida is in Tampa so I would be able to attend "night school", it is affordable but you have the headache of scheduling your own classes and buying your own books. The other two MBA programs are internet MBA's. University of Florida - you may have heard of the gators if you are a fan of college football or basketball - is my second choice. It is the most expensive program but I would be done in 27 months and they will give me a laptop and ipod touch as well as all books, fees and guaranteed class schedule comes with it. They do have a graduation ceremony which I feel is a big deal because I didn't do the ceremony with my BS and I think that made my mom sad. The third choice would make me a Seminole - Florida State University. I have to still research this program. But it is exciting to think of all the new experiences I will be having and all the new things I will be learning.
I can't promise that I will be as active online as I have been through all of this but I will keep you updated.


  1. You go girl! That is awesome that you are going to get your MBA. You can do and it will all work out. I love you and know from the past that you can accomplish anything once you put your mind to it.

  2. Hey Debbie! Good luck with the GMAT and getting your masters. I remember when Nate took the GMAT- doesn't sound like too much fun. How's Florida life treating you? I hope well. See ya later.
