I was walking my dog through campus today and saw a handful of perspective students infront of Jacobs today. All had their name tags and info packs. I am surprised you said there were 15 people there for a visit...that was about how many people were at the MIT visit I was on last fall.

just to provide a framework, I visited the last Friday in July - there might have been more folks there because it was a Friday? I should note though that I visited Chicago GSB the same day and only had about 3 other prospectives + 2 spouses there...

The winter is not too much worse than NY - just a bit more snow and windier

zero degrees will happen...chicago is not that snow though. I would say its more along the lines of Boston. Now Tuck, you will see a lot more than 8 feet of snow haha.

Another difference is that the snow in Chicago/NYC melts at a decent rate as compared with the snow in WI/NH/MA. I think with a decent jacket + winter accessories (gloves, hat, etc) you should be fine

zero sales tax...zero income tax...trust me moving to a place with something like a 10% sales tax sucks. If I ever start a company, like a little consulting thing or something I am going to locate it on the coast of NH.

Live free or die.

I submitted Part 1 on Wednesday. Now do I have to wait to recieve a confirmation email that my application has been processed or can I just call on Monday (+2 business days after submitting part 1) to schedule my on-campus interview?

Thanks!

Part 1 submitted, essays uploaded. I need to re-scan and upload my transcripts (a couple are over 2MB in size). At least my recommenders are registered, so they are the bottleneck at this point. Heck, they've got a few weeks and are reliable, so I'm considering the Kellogg app 99% complete at this point

Thanks Kryzak. I'm glad they released essays nearly 2 months ago so I've had time to do a few drafts and outlines, have them reviewed, and clean them up all before mid-August. This leaves plenty of time for recommenders as well.

This is a HUGE advantage we all have over the class of 2010 Even though you guys will be making real money before us.

haha - no joke! I didn't start essays until September. Will serve you very well though! More time to do other apps/essays and revisit if necessary.

I'm in the process of reading Paul Bodine's book. I've done a few brainstorming sessions, but will really hit in this weekend as I should be done with his book then. Awesome book!

For Part 1, I have 2 questions:

1) For the description of responsibilities at work, are you listing responsibilities and saving specific accomplishments for the essays? I get the impression that is what they are looking for, but I could be wrong.

2) For the Extracurricular Activities section, are you just listing formal activities, or are you including unorganized things like golfing, etc.

I got my job description from my employer and made that to fit...it looks different from my resume, it actually sort of allowed my resume to show that I went far beyond my actual job responsibilities.

I think I had one unorganized thing...if you dont have any formal activities I wouldnt leave it blank thats for sure.

Am I the only one who feels that studying for the GMAT and preparing for B School apps are my only extra curricular activities for the past year?

Congratulations to those who have already completed their essays!
I'm just starting with mine and have a question - what font size and margin widths are you guys using for the essays?
