Many schools have some sort of 'Contribution' essay.Basically list out your interests and how they will help your classmates.In another way,show them what you bring to the table.

Another Q (sorry for bombarding):

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?

Just to confirm this is not the right place to talk about weaknesses, right ?

You can talk about it if you overcame it.

For me,how it fostered your development needs more space followed by rest.

Tepper released the profile for incoming class.

http://www.tepper.cmu.edu/mba/admission ... index.aspx

Class size is roughly the same whereas avg GPA went up and avg GMAT score went down,not substantially though.

Also the % of women went up.

Is it ok to write an obstacle which is like 10 years old?

I am having real hard time in finding any substantial one :(

I think you can write provided it helped foster your development.

Hey all, the Tepper app went live yesterday! Although, I experienced a little difficulty in creating an account - when I tried yesterday I got a duplicate accout warning message. I don't know why they'd have a dupe as this is the first time I'll be applyin to Tepper. I clicked on the "email" option but didn't receive anything. I tried to create an account today, got the same warning, clicked on the "email" option again, but this time I got an account creation confirmation. I guess it worked in the end, but it was a little confusing nevertheless.

Has anyone else experienced this or is it just me?

I experienced something similar.Got a duplicate message for the first time.I think the login for all apps on applyyourself.com might be the same.

I spoke too soon, I tried entering the PIN, located the other school that shared the same one and tried to enter the corresponding password...now I get a message saying that either the PIN or the password is wrong. Tepper's app is just weird, when I try to search by my email account (the one that supposedly has a dupe) the thing says that the PIN can't be located. I have created different PINs (2 of the schools both use the ApplyYourself system) or a username for all of the 3 other schools I'm applyin to. I asked a couple of people I know that are also applyin to multiple schools - although no one else is applyin to Tepper - and they said that they did the same.

Has anyone been able to actually access the app system for Tepper? I don't get why this is so difficult, I consider myself a reasonably intelligent individual...

I'll be out at Tepper this Monday for a class visit and interview. If anyone else is going to be out in Pitt let me kno, altho I'm starting to get the feeling that Class2012 and I are the only ones with an active interest in Tepper on this forum...

Skye10... I'll try and be more active, it has just been a busy time with all the round 1 deadlines looming.  I have my interview scheduled for tomorrow in Detroit.  Would anyone who has already done an interview be willing to post their questions?  I'll post mine first chance I get.  Thanks!
