Data forms and transcripts aren't that bad. The 2000 character limit for some of the short answers left me scared. Awards etc...I wrote 200 characters. They were pretty self explanatory...three days to go. G'luck guys.

Both LORs are in, transcript is done...just filling in activities etc. Tweaking essays one last time, submitting tomorrow *cross fingers*. Definitely going out for a beer after Tuck and Wharton are submitted.

Recommendations are in and application is submitted. Back to staring blankly at the UChicago PowerPoint presentation I'm trying to finish.

Hello shmegs - did you check the printed version of your application in pdf? Was the information you had entered in the Awards section completely visible?

My activities section overlapped with the awards section though I had sufficient characters left in the latter !

The notes ask us to make sure that ALL the information we enter is visible on the printed format - hence wondering

do you guys repeat the prompt at the beginning of each essay? e.g. my first essay looks like:

Describe your career progress to date and your future short-term and long-term career goals. How do you expect a Wharton MBA to help you achieve these goals, and why is now the best time for you to join our program? (1,000 words)

(my essay)

Yes, although its not required.

And on your final PDF, there's a 1-2 word watermark that goes on each page outlining which essay you're answering.

Kellogg requires you to repeat the prompt though.

I refuse to allow my creative self to be hindered by these constricting 'themes'. Ok, back to reality: I'm just not that great a writer :-)
