And The First $1,000 MBA Giveaway Winner Is………..

I'm very excited to announce the first $1,000 MBA giveaway winner today. I recently discussed some interesting facts about getting an MBA. And am using my first hand experience to help someone in need of some advice.

Congrats To The $1,000 MBA Giveaway Winner!

The first $1,000 MBA giveaway winner is Eric, a senior from UCLA! Eric commented sincerely about his concerns post graduation. He's unsure if it is a good idea to go to a “2nd tier” business school or just work for whatever company that hires him first.

We'll be working with Eric to strategize a plan after UCLA and coach him through the process of finding a job in his desired field of finance, or applying to business school.

Thanks to everyone for participating in the contest.


A Special Thanks To The Following For Retweeting:

@EvolutionWealth from Evolution of Wealth

@MinorityFortune from Minority Fortune

@WiseBread from Wise Bread

@MoneyNing from MoneyNing

@Green_Panda from Green Panda Treehouse

@Studenomics from Studenomics

@BudgetsareSexy from Budgets Are Sexy

@BrianScheur from My Next Buck



We've decided to keep the competition open for another week to see if there are any other folks out there interested since we said there would be two winners! How many times have you gone on Craigslist to inquire about that something you've wanted, to only find out it was sold! 

We hope by extending the competition we'll be able to give more people a chance to discover our giveaway.

Twitters please feel free to e-mail me as well about your interests, because besides being so generous about retweeting, I'm not entirely sure whether some of you are at this time interested in applying to b-school.

We'd love to help so don't be shy. Happy Halloween!
