Words of the Week – dinged

One of the most dreaded words in the MBA world, dinged means to be rejected by a school or company.

You might hear a 1st  year MBA say, “I received an invitation to interview; so I’m feeling good about my resume and cover letter, but I think I need to work on my interviewing skills because I got dinged after the first round. Thankfully my #1 company is not until next week.”
