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?

Any idea if they were from CMU's 5 year program for their undergraduate students? I'm trying to gauge their openness to recent undergrads from other schools.

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?

Re: Calling all 2011 CMU- Tepper Applicants [#permalink] New post 17 Oct 2010, 17:46
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?

Thanks!
