Question for those R-1 applicants whose application status has been changed to ""Complete for R-1". When did you submit your application?. I submitted mine on the 29th and my application status is still "Received". Just trying to figure out what is going on.

I submitted my app on the 26th, but the 2nd letter of rec didn't get submitted until the 28th. Mine shows Complete for R1....Not sure why yours wouldn't show complete, especially because you got it in before the 1st.

They stated in the email that some apps might take up to 2 weeks to get processed. Maybe there was something missing in the app... You can just wait until it should be processed and then send an email to the adcom. Other option is to post your doubt in the S2S forum on the Wharton's site and somebody will be able to explain it to you.

Updated the front page after adding new r1 names and moving few r1 to r2 names. If anyone is missing their names on the list or are in the wrong round let me know so I can fix it. Been real busy with other apps that I did not track this thread. Now I should be back with my r2 app for Wharton.

Can someone give me an example of "complex problem"?
Example:
Once upon a time in Manhattan, you were working for a respectable guru of wealth management Mr. Madoff. One afternoon, he entrusted you the task of delivering some documents from the HQ to the corporate lawyers at Baker and McKensie LLC. You took the case with a bunch of extremely sensitive confidential corporate information with you, and left the building. As you were crossing the sreet, a female dressed in a black leather bike attire on a super fast Ducatti bike grabbed the case right from your hands as she was passing by you and sped away. It all happened so fast that your bodyguards and accompanying security guys did not have time to react. You set to solve the crysis! A week later Mr. Madoff turned himself in.

lol ok. but isn't that an ethical dilemma?

i have a story for this question but im concerned that i will be focusing on team + people dynamics part of the equation. The actual problem itself wasn't that hard.
Do you think that could work?

It could definitely work, but it could also fail depending on what picture you are trying to paint about yourself.

It is important to have an application strategy. Here is a simple framework:
1. define your goals pertaining the application. Simply put, you should decide a) what good stuff to highlight (a detailed list of such things should be on your wall now) and b) what bad stuff to mitigate (another very detailed list) or explain why it is not as bad as it looks.
2. which parts/components of the application will help you do 1a) and 1b).
3. most efficient ways of using each of the components in 2.

A very good analogy to application is often used by one of the MIT's admission's people - a mosaic or a jigsaw puzzle where all pieces together are part of the big picture. Every piece by itself may be beautiful, yet they may not look good in combination, and the other way around.

Paul Bodine also refers to the same approach in his book, only he defines them a bit differently, but the underlying concept is the same: choose several things/areas that make you unique and package them in a way that highlights their beauty and strength so that your weaknesses look natural and not overpowering.

So you and only you can decide whether a story or an essay that kills two, four or ten birds with one stone is really the best tactical approach to achieve the goals in YOUR application strategy.

How were interview invites done previously? Do they send a few out each day, or send most out upfront and send out the others later?

I re-read my essays for Wharton, against all better judgment, and realized how hopeless they all are!! Especially the first one. I think I had a good flow and then butchered it while editing a few hours before submission...

Very depressing but at least now I will not even be hoping for something in the mail..,

I have convinced myself not to go back to look at any of my old essays till I decide to start on R2 apps.

Yeah, same here. I'm definitely screwed. lol.

I hope that they stick to it this time around. Last year they had said that the invitations would start going out on Oct 23rd but the invites only started trickling out around Oct 28th.

So exactly the opposite of what Harvard did....
