Thank you for using the timer!

There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Essay Questions A.What are your short-term and long-term goals? How will a Tepper MBA help you to achieve these goals. (Please include any information regarding what steps you have taken to learn more about the Tepper School.)
B. The Tepper School’s culture relies on all members to be active contributors to our community. With your values, experiences, and interests, how will you make a unique contribution to the Tepper community? Your examples may include: classroom interaction, student activities, career development, community service, etc.
C. Please answer two of the following three questions or statements. Please clearly specify which questions you are answering. Your two answers should equal a total of two pages or less. 1.Describe an obstacle you have faced in your professional or academic life. How did you overcome this obstacle and how did it foster your development? 2. Describe a time in which your ethics were challenged. How did you deal with the situation and what did you learn from it? 3. One thing people would be surprised to know about me is . . .
D. Is there anything additional that you think we should know as we evaluate your application? Note: if you believe your credentials and essays represent you fairly, you should not feel obligated to answer this question. This essay is intended to provide a place for you to add information that you think is important but is not covered elsewhere in the application.
I probably will very soon. I am a bit late in starting my apps. Got done with GMAT in July and researched schools for a month or so and just got started on the essays. Didn't really have the time to visit the schools.
OTOH, I live in Columbus, Ohio which is very close to Pittsburg (~3 hours) and have visited the CMU campus in the past (Not Tepper in particular). So am familiar with Pitt and love the city.
Are you applying for Fall 2011 too? Have you visited yet?
I read on couple of last year threads that they received interview calls as early as the day after they submitted their applications. How is the actual process? Since October 25 is the deadline, will all the interview calls starting flowing only after this date?

Hi, Count me in for the Round 1.
I'm working on my application and currently editing the "activities" section. It seems that Tepper requires you to write a list of your activities in a freestyle manner, in a separate document.
Does anyone have any practical advice/experience with this? Should I take more of an "essay-writing" approach for writing about my activities, or just list my activities with required details in a factual matter?
If you like my post, a kudos is not expected but appreciated
