As promised in our April 6th time line for this year’s BoBs, today is the day we release the 2011-2012 Best of Blogging nominees! For those of you not familiar with the Clear Admit Best of Blogging competition, the goal of this annual event is two-fold.  First, we want to recognize and celebrate the best MBA applicant and student blogs covering the 2011-12 admissions cycle/academic year. Equally important is Clear Admit’s commitment to identifying valuable sources of information for the next round of MBA applicants and students.

The process we used to determine BoB nominees started with considering all FFF-featured blogs and those listed in the Clear Admit Wiki. Looking at originality and relevance of content, as well as total number of posts and overall contribution to the space, we then narrowed the count down to a select group of bloggers. Whether new to the blog scene or seasoned veterans, focused on providing class descriptions or travel tips, straight-laced students or party animals, all members of this group  have shared something unique about themselves and provided informative and relatable information about the MBA experience. And so, without further ado, the nominated bloggers:

Applicant Bloggers:



Fortune 800:

MBA Dilemma:

My MBA Dreamz:


Roller Coaster:

The Senator:




Student Bloggers:


Darden Poet:







Night Owl:


Congrats to our nominees! The next step is for the nominated bloggers and blog readers to cast their votes on the overall ranking, as well as a few more focused categories. Clear Admit readers and FFF community members will be invited to vote online early next week. Voting will conclude  on Friday, April 27th. We’ll be emailing ballots to nominees with their contact information on their blogs; those nominees who don’t receive a ballot are encouraged to get in touch by sending a note to Additional information about our online voting process will be available on Monday, so stay tuned!
