I'm currently previewing my app in PDF before submitting. On a few sections (Employment - Organization & Role, Activities, etc.) part of my answer is cut off on the PDF but I had enough room on the electronic form. Does anyone know if the adcom will see the entire response or do they only see what the PDF shows?

Thanks!

I don't have the personal information section in my resume, is it OK to leave it out? The sample resume is intended for job purposes, I find it weird to add that section in my resume for a B-school app. Any thoughts?


I think you can go either way. I actually like it, because it allowed me to put some general commentary around my experience and discuss a bit more touchy/feely stuff that normally wouldn't be put directly under roles/responsibilities. As an example, I say that I have worked with various high level executives, including Director of X, Chief <INSERT> Officer, etc.


Thanks ryguy.

I think they pretty much see only the pdf. Either ways why take a chance, I think its better to go back and edit the info in the form.

Is a suit necessary for interview? I never wore one and that would be the first time for me. :)



really, you've never worn a suit?!

I think you could probably get by with a blazer and slacks but if you want to be on the safe side, I'd wear a suit..


I just bought one. :-D

They would most probably see what's in the PDF.I too encountered the same issue.I went back and removed the spacing between paras.Basically adjusted everything to one para.

Also, if you note the "tips" (there is a hyperlink next to some of the textboxes), they recommend that you to keep things in a paragraph form.

Just submitted! Phew!

I'm still waiting for my boss to put in his recommendation. Does Duke have any leeway with this? He told me he'd do it as of Thursday so, I'm not nervous but.. just in case.

My recommender submitted this morning... phew :).

BTW where are you guys staying when you are visiting? My friend who went to Duke recommended staying in Chapel Hill? Any good restaurants in the area? Things to do? I want to explore, never been to the area before.
