Essay Questions

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.

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.

Hi guys,

To redirect my frustration of waiting, I complied a much-anticipated rolls call.

Does anyone know how to append info to the first page of this thread? I tried to "reply" to the first post of this thread, but it seems to get attached to the last page of the thread.

I know that I am digging my own grave when I cross over my name as dinged on Dec 20th..but hope that the list helps others to gain some informative insight into Tepper admissions trends.

My apologies and please let me know if you find misinformation and missing names in the list. I did not add a name unless there was a specific mention about applying to a specific round.

Is anyone a US resident who's requesting a Skype interview? They seem pretty heavy handed about wanting you to visit in the email. I lack the time or ca$h to make it back east this winter. Can anyone commiserate? Tepper really strives to create a good community in its MBA program, so they want to make sure you have the desire to be there. I think one way they gauge that is whether or not you go out there for the interview. I live in Chicago, traveled out for an on campus interview, and was admitted R1 with some money. I guess what I'm saying is, really try to go on campus for the interview.

I wanted to know if anybody could tell me about the nearest hotel. I have just shifted to US and dont drive and so will liek to know of a place which is nearest to the campus and from where I can get a cab. Does anyone have any info? The Holiday Inn University Center is nearby, and has a hotel shuttle that can bring you to campus. There is also an airport bus that stops near campus and near the hotel, if you don't want to take a cab. It's$2.75 (but you need exact change).

When are you going to be there? Maybe we all should compare dates to see if there can be GMATClubber meetings, car pools, etc.

Thanks!

I interviewed in early November, so it's been a while, but here's my quick summary. I interviewed with Krystal Brooks. She was very nice and easy to talk to. I don't recall many specifics being that the interview was months ago, but there was nothing asked that I didn't expect. I walked her through my resume and she asked the standard questions like why an MBA, why Tepper, and why now. She had read everything in my application but said I could re-use examples from my essays if I wanted. There weren't any interviews after mine, so I had a lot of time to ask questions at the end. I think we talked for about an hour total. Overall, I'd say don't get too worked up about it. This was the most relaxed b-school interview I had. Good luck!

Tepper has followed up us very well. The school should SERIOUSLY consider promoting its tight-knit community a bit more. For example, in Japan R1 admits are invited for alum receptions. On the admitted students' facebook (exactly 150 have registered by today), I can see that these invitations have been sent not only to admits in Japan but also to U.S. admits, as similar receptions are held in various U.S. locations (Chicago, NYC etc.)

The reception in Japan is on March 10th, will update you guys afterwards.

Right after the admission, I was also contacted by the current Japanese students at Tepper. They offered me opportunities to further learn about the program.

I have received great insider perspectives that I had not been able to find anywhere else. I translated these into English, to share them with interested Clubbers as well (with my correspondent's approval).

These responses are detailed, so I attach them as a word document. Hope you find it useful.

guys!! i submitted my app on 20th and the status still says submitted only!! Is it supposed to change to complete or something and no notification so far from Adcomm...

same for me! submitted on 20th and status says "submitted". Though in my case, one of my evaluators mistakenly thought he had submitted the reco, but hasn't. But I've 3 recommendations, so my application is complete since they have received the other two.

Any international students here who have been invited for interview?

Nets,

If you don't mind can you share your interview experience/questions? I have mine on the Nov 15th!

Sure.

I had a 50 minute on-campus interview and it was very relaxed. She (Adcom member) made me very comfortable with some initial chit chat.

There was nothing really out of the regular stuff, just the regular questions - walk through resume, why Mba, why Tepper, Teamwork experience, Leadership experience, Problems in teamwork situations, long and short term goals, weaknesses and strengths etc.

You will get all these questions at various online resources. My advice is just be yourself. Thats the best way to be passionate on the interview. Unlike some interviews, Tepper's is definitely not a stress one, so you can be very relaxed.

It really is hard to judge such interviews given the way they go well for everyone.

Best of luck for your interview, Try to have fun and it will be fun.

everyone keep it cool. Fully understand the anxiety in this thread as we are all waiting for the 20th but lets keep it civil.

No more of topic stuff,

Thanks!

The date is most likely in March, after the admitted student weekend and around most other r1 schools deadlines...

Hey, one question
The Tepper essays state - Please clearly specify which questions you are answering.

Do we need to mention I am answering question No 1 or not necessary.

I always put the essay question in the beginning of my essays. But at least put a number like "Essay 1" or something if they ask to identify them

Good luck everyone.

FYI - I received an email at 4:15 PM on 12/21 last year.

Does the email just tell you to log in to check your status or does it tell you whether you are in or not?

We could tell right away from the subject line of the email, and then there was a link.
