interesting, unless Columbia asks for a different resume, all the resumes I've seen from business schools have the community service/activities at the very bottom, taking up 2-3 lines.

See that was my confusion; columbia has gleaned all resume [job/community] info. in separate sections.
They say the resume is for the "Fellowship Selection Committee to review and award merit based fellowships....this is optional for all applicants not willing to be considered for fellowships.....this is not to be used in lieu of the employment section of the application......".

I think aviroop is correct, but am a bit nervous :( ..

well, is this the ONLY resume you're submitting for columbia? I thought resumes are generally used for any blind interviews or things like that, where you want to have some extracurriculars on there to start the conversation and portray a well-rounded version of yourself.

gmat_march - the resume is like your job resume.. so u need to put in the resume as you would for a job application.

I think this was discussed in the previous posts in the same thread or in a similar thread and one sample of a resume was posted...
Just to cool ur nerves, I will re-post the sample resume

Okay, after wrestling with the "Credit card payment" module of the Columbia website for two days, I was finally able to make the payment and submit the application today. Dear God !! Please no 'ding' in the first application! :?

Congrats mNeo :)

I need some help in making a decision: I am definitely looking to apply to Columbia but am not sure if I should go with ED or RD. I am definitely more interested in Chicago and K but then I heard that there is a "small" advantage in applying in ED. Having said that, I am not sure if I can work on 3 apps over the next month or so. Would you guys recommend concentrating on C/K and push CBS to RD? How much of an edge do you have in ED?

Decisions, decisions...

dosa aka mojomover, there is definitely an advantage by submitting in ED. I suspect Columbia will not have an ED bucket per se, so any candidate with a good profile and good essays will get in because he has already demonstrated interest by signing up for the ED round.

That said, I suspect that the closer you get to the ED deadline, your returns start diminishing. So, dont submit an app on the Ed deadline.

Thank you, ncprasad! :)

Okay, I want the rest of you gmatclubbers to take a moment of silence and pray to your God about my first application. My fellow atheists can pray to the theory of evolution, if they want.

dosa, I had a similar suggestion for kryzak a few days back. I think that at this stage, when almost all the R1 deadlines are a month or so away, I would not recommend focussing on more than 2 schools (Unless you are almost done with one application).

Dont you think there could be another person who thought of that acronym at the same time I did? :)

On a side note: what does your crystal ball say about my future? :P

Now I understand why everybody was checking the statuses of their applications many times in a day. I have submitted the Columbia application today and I already feel like checking the status :(
