About the Blog
Originally, the concept for the blog came from identifying more as a “Poet” than a “Quant.” (Also, let’s not forget about the alliteration in there!) It was a rocky road to the ultimate achievement, an acceptance letter from the Darden Admissions Committee, but I made it!
Since being accepted into Darden, I will have to prove the name of the blog “notquiteaquant” wrong.
Over the next two years I will talk about the program, my retrospective look at the admissions process, and anything else that is related to the experience of a Global Executive MBA program.
Hailing from Texas, this northern Virginia resident will be attending the Global Executive Program and Darden School of Business as a part of the Class of 2018.
Currently, she works at a mid-sized government contractor. Her role has changed over the last five years and right now she supports the defense IT and Finance business line as a program manager.
In the community, Casey is involved in AFCEA (Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association) DC Chapter on the Young AFCEAn Board. The chapter works to bring industry and government together to solve pressing issues facing the information technology in the government.
Casey received her Bachelor’s at Agnes Scott College in Atlanta, Georgia. She is active in her alumnae community in the DC area, serving as co-chair with another Scottie.
Through her time researching and applying for business school, Casey also joined the MBALaunch program that is organized by Forte Forum. She now serves as the MBA Launch Alumnae City Chair for the DC area.
As Casey attends Darden she will chronicle her experience as best she can. (I mean, she is going to be working full time and going to school part time!)
Let her know if you have any questions and she will be glad to help out.
