Energy is constant...making change inevitable so we must embrace who we are to become by taking an active role in shaping what is coming to us. And while I die one more time I get a chance to live a happier tomorrow, rejuvinated by the triumph over today. I'm fighting for who I want to be. Never complacent, pushing forward to a greater being. Can you see? Love me? It's an internal battle, one must come to accept. Jesus wept. So why shouldn't I?

"Intelligence is attractive, but so is life experience. You can't amass it just by reading a ton of books. But you can live a lot life in a short amount of time. Travel. Talk to everyone. Collect adventures, and use them to understand the world. That's how you learn to treat people well. That's sexy."

Gotta Get on These

There are three required essays for all candidates, one optional essay for any additional information, and required school specific essays for each school you have ranked. The Consortium essay questions are listed below:

Please discuss your post-MBA short and long term professional goals. How will your professional experience, when combined with an MBA degree, allow you to achieve your goals?
Describe a significant professional accomplishment that demonstrates your potential for a successful management career.
The mission of The Consortium is to enhance diversity in business education and leadership by helping to reduce the serious under representation of African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Native Americans in both our member schools’ enrollments and the ranks of management. What have you done in your business, academic or personal life to demonstrate commitment to this mission? Please provide specific examples of your involvement, actions and their results.
For each school you intend to apply, you will be required to write a school specific essay. Schools are only allowed to view your essay to their program.
Optional additional essay: Is there any other information you would like to share with us that is not presented elsewhere in your application?

For My Namesake

In and out of consciousness... or so it seems.
This life passes by, mostly seeming like a series of dreams.
My heart fills heavy when emotions flow deep.
Considering the profoundness of a single moment in time.
We have no choice when it comes to trying.
Life must be lived... like we are dying.

Pop said he cared about me. That's a real powerful word. Because so many spend so much time trying to get over, there is only so many you can control. Pray hard... pray harder... trust God... no more sorrow.
