I imagine the majority of people, or at least those >2 years out of school, did "engaged community/organization" and "career vision".

That's what I did.

-1 point for originality. :x

I'm doing area of the world and career vision. =)

Anyone else still working on their app? I'm planning on submitting tomorrow afternoon... is it possible I get shut out of the system due to massive amounts of people accessing the site? If so, I can just pull an all-nighter tonight and submit tonight. What do you guys think?

thanks all who responded about question 3 and the community question. I was getting stuck in my essay, and considering using two examples. Then i realized i just had not put in sufficient detail about how I engaged with the community aspect of it. phew!

Good for you...that could have been a nightmare.

I'm doing organization and career vision. Out of curiousity, what do you write about for undergrad experience and how long ago did you do your undergrad?


I graduated in 2006.

I chose to talk about my experience as an international student in a business case competition.

I will submit tomorrow morning CET time, the Americans should be still sleeping and the site accessible...

Hi,

Can some one tell me if applynow sends an email to the applicant when the application status changes from received to complete?

Thanks

My recommender submitted her rec at 5:01pm (according to her clock)... do you guys think that automatically puts me in round 2? I can't find the official time of submission for recs anywhere, whereas the exact time down to the second that I submitted my actual app is on the main page.

My recommenders said something about being a reassurance that they could be a little late and it wouldn't hurt your R1 chances...they said they were pretty sure it was for Harvard...can anybody confirm?

I would like to know the same. I submitted my HBS, Wharton, and Chicago applications on 10/1, and only HBS has yet to be changed to "complete" status.

Will HBS change the application status to "complete" once they have confirmed all materials were properly submitted? If so, has anybody's status changed to complete yet?

Don't know... mine's still in "submitted" status too. Does anyone know if we get an email when our status changes? Does it change to "complete" or "received" or anything?

I recall reading in last year's thread that it's submitted then your decision, but I might be mistaken.
