To MBA Applicants in the Financial Sector

As anyone whose head is not buried in the sand is aware, protests about Wall Street, bankers, and the finance sector are rather heated as of late.  Especially for any applicants who might be working on "Wall Street,"  I wanted to gave some advice for keeping you focused on winning the MBA admissions game: Don't apologize for what you do, where you work, or what you want to do in the future.  Don't let mass media, people you know, protestors, or any feelings of doubt creep into your thinking.  Stay focused and know that whatever noise surrounds you, it is best ignored. Of course, if you have managed some way to use the protests to your rhetorical advantage, please do so. Almost anything is potentially valuable under the right circumstances.
