Finally, Acceptee* Manny Valenzuela was kind enough to alert me to a new book about Wharton called Running of the Bulls by Nicole Ridgway. It focuses on the undergrad experience at Wharton. I read a tepid review of it in The Wall St. Journal, but Todd of 1-800-CEO-Read blog highlighted it, which I assume means that he thinks it’s worthwhile.
have decided that people who use Accepted.com’ web site, attend its
chats, read this blog, and are in other ways members of the
Accepted.com community are “Acceptees.” Now, don’t you feel
better having name? 🙂
