The last 6 months...

I am so happy that I will be attending the MBA program at Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School in Belgium!

This process has Even though I applied for the Ambassadorial Scholarship over a year ago, my journey has really just been over the last 6 months.  I could go on for pages about this process - but I don't think that would be very interesting to you.  And if I start to be boring now, before I even leave the USA, I'm afraid I'll lose you to much more interesting blogs out there.

So instead I'll give you a quick summary of the last 6 months in my life:

*I applied to 5 universities and each one had a different application process.  All had essay requirements, some had phone interviews, and a few even had skype interviews.

*I took the GMAT and was happy with my score. Since I got accepted to each university I applied to, I know that schools were also happy with my score too.

*I had to make the difficult decision of which university to attend.  Each one I applied to was great but in the end I felt chose Vlerick because I felt the international experience, corporate partnerships, and location were a better fit for me.

*I have been spending as much time as I can with my family, friends and Rotaract clubmates.  I know I'll miss them all so much!

*I just returned from the Rotary International Convention in Montreal.  It was wonderful meeting up with my friends again and I can't wait to meet up with them in Europe!  I also was sharing stories with Yvette & Clemens, 2 other Rotaractors from Germany, who are Ambassadorial Scholars this year to Ireland and Australia, respectively.  It really is a small world afterall!


  1. Annie - Thank you for posting your blog to Facebook so I could find it! I plan to follow it so I can hear all about your adventures during this year. Rotary International could not have picked a more deserving or enthusiastic Ambassadorial Scholar! You make Rotaractors (and past Rotaractors) everywhere proud. Hugs from California!

  2. Yea! Found your blog and excited to share in your journey!
