yeah, it's flaky. I was able to make my payment without problems, but as I was reviewing everything before submitting, the app came down again. Don't worry about it, Im sure admissions will be accommodating if we are late submitting due to issues on their site.

Have you guys found a place to mention internships or part-time jobs held during college on the application? I see nowhere to mention it except for the resume.


Nope - I didn't even put them in my resume because I needed the space to explain my positions for full-time work. I wouldn't worry about that too much.

This is kind of scary. Maybe they'll extend the deadline? :)

I wouldn't cut it down. You are within the 10% margin. That essay is VERY IMPORTANT within this application because there are only 2. If you're happy with it, then submit it.

Alrite. Everything is filled out. Essays are uploaded. Now, I'm going to sleep on it tonight and submit tomorrow morning (after the requisite changes to the essay I will feel like making tomorrow morning)

Good luck guys!

Wow, I am surprised with what I pulled off on the PPT in the course of 2 hours. I'm gonna upload this tonight and hopefully make a few edits to the essays tomorrow morning.

I'm optimistic. Let's hope for the best.

Good luck to everyone!!!

Just submitted my apps...so count me in for round 1.

Hey are people uploading a word document or copy and past their essay into the space?
I copy and pasted and they essay printed out in the application...

I wonder if people who uploaded a word document was able to print out their essay along with the application?? If so how was the font?

Now, I wait for my recommendations to come through. Thankfully GSB is ok with delays for the recommendations past the deadline.
