Apparently MBA blogging is so, like, 2005; now there's a website set up for MBA Podcasting... Prediction: the first MBA video blog appears sometime in July ~ September of this year... The first 2010 blog?
Happy New Year 2006! And for those of you in the midst of round 1 decisions, good luck!
There were lots of interesting links left in my inbox, including a memoir about MBA life, Canada's PR push (the quotations reminding everyone that Canada "is a first world country" and that Canadians are "much more in tune with the rest of the world than are their southern neighbor" were especially nice touches), and a new (?) blog on Business Week about MBA admissions.
I see that the Wharton RSS feeds have disappeared since the summer. I'll have to look around and see if I can figure out another way to post feeds there.

After a nice four month hiatus, I've begun going through the inbox and adding all the new MBA-related blogs. There's a plethora of '09 applicants raring to write about their experiences, and plenty of Chicago, Wharton, Texas, Ross, students to tell the true story of MBA life. Hope to keep this site more updated going forward.
A lot of interesting additions to the directory, highlighted in gold.
I'm not sure where this Stern 2006's summer internship blog fits in the directory, but it contains some gorgeous landscape photography from the American west that's worth checking out. AdLova looks to be an interesting read on advertising, written by an XLRI '96 alum. Duke MBA ('92) and PhD ('99) alum, and Sloan strategy professor Starling David Hunter will soon be starting at the American University of Sharjah (www.aus.edu) in the United Arab Emirates. Plus a bunch of Stanford and Chicago GSB additions.
I've corrected the problem with the school headings. Also added a few more new blogs; perhaps the most interesting are the blogs by Wharton alums Laura Bennet (writing about the burgeoning pet insurance industry) and Christian B Schraga (providing a note of caution about the value of an MBA).
1. As I mentioned this morning, the site has been reorganized. 2. Now all student and alum blogs are grouped by school. This saves me the time of having to move graduated student blogs off to a separate alumni section. 3. I've migrated a bunch of the Class of 2007 applicants into the student section. I'm about halfway through this. 4. Goodbye, Megami. 5. Note that if you hover the mouse of the links, it will pop up some of the other information about the blog that used to take up space on the main page. 6. Per your suggestions, I added a ton of new MBA and applicant weblogs. To name a few: Junior Bird (Marshall (USC)) MBWana (Stanford GSB) Joost Schreve (Stanford GSB) Kevin (U. of Wisconsin-Madison) Flatpoint MBA (Yale SOM) Le MBA (HEC Paris) MBA Life (Judge Institute of Management (Cambridge)) No Time to Waste! (Symbiosis Institute of International Business) Kacophony - The K Factor (XLRI) A Boy Can DreamNivi's musings 6:56 AM EST [Link]:
Over the next couple days I'll be playing around with the format of this site. I'd like to make it a bit "denser", to get more of the information up at the top. I plan to integrate the alumni listing back into the main school/student listings. And rather than have the student and applicant sections in chronological order (so that the most recent class is at the bottom), I'll put the newest classes at the top.
None of these changes were necessary a year or two ago, when the list of MBA blogs was a couple dozen. Now, with a couple dozen weblogs per class, and with a bunch of "graduating" blogs, they've become necessary.
Added more updated from the Inbox, including MBizA, written by HBS and Sloan students (cats and dogs living together!); another 2009 applicant blog (the early bird gets the worm...but who wants to eat worms?); and more.
I plan to move all the Class of '07 applicants who will be attending school in the Fall to their respective sections, probably in early June. I'll move the Class of '05 students down to the alumni section, for those that don't take down their weblogs after graduation.
I've slightly updated the directory layout, to make it easier to use. Applicant blogs are more clearly broken out by matriculation year. Newly added blogs are in bold. Sites that don't seem to be regularly updated are grayed out.

I notice that a growing number of links are stale/outdated. I'll do the Spring (link) cleaning in the next two weeks, in order to weed out defunct blogs and de-emphasize the idle blogs. The next quarterly cleaning, in September, will move the applicant blogs to their respective schools of enrollment. In the meantime, I'll be looking at tweaking the directory design, in light of the explosive growth in the number of MBA weblogs.
Speaking of which, congratulations to all the applicants who've tasted success this season!
