Editorially Elated...

That's my status in Facebook since Monday morning!

Reason: I have been chosen as one of the two Editors in chief of the Journal of Chicago GSB, ChiBus.

ChiBus was my first peek into the life at GSB and i fell for it at first sight. It is very representative of the culture of the school and i would recommend all applicants to regularly read the online version of the journal. It definitely helped me learn more about the school.

At GSB, I decided to get involved in things i love to do, rather than taking up "resume filler" roles. I worked for the present ChiBus team, wrote articles, helped them during production and absolutely loved the work. So i decided to lead the ChiBus effort for the next one year and applied last week when they called for applications. The present team also felt i would do a good job and so I got the positive response Monday morning. It really feels great. I am genuinely excited...

My co-editor-in-chief is an amazingly sweet girl. We've worked for ChiBus right from the beginning and we've worked together as partners for two days - I really enjoy working with her. Also, ChiBus is really a group of about 20 people. We are now trying to put together our team for the next 12 months and we're adding some nice people to the group. If everything goes per plan, ChiBus promises to be a lot of fun and a great experience. I am definitely looking forward to it.
