Just SEVEN R2 apps ? Why is NYU not getting much love ? Is it because of the student loan policy ? Are there any gmatclubbers who wanted to apply but decided against it ? I'd like to know some reasons ?

I thought about it as a R2 app, was still undecided about it when I found out about Kellogg...after that I decided against it. I initially was set to apply there, sent my GMAT score there and everything. However, the cost of living in NYC was a huge turn off and had my wife and I leaning against it after we thought more about it. NY isnt a fun city to be poor in.

To prepare for this eventuality, I always give my recommenders a deadline date of five days BEFORE the real deadline.

2.39am here in Brussels, nightmare to get that application on time. I realized around midnight that my 3rd essay, a word doc with pics, was too large! I tried EVERYTHING, nothing worked. Thank God I had sort of prepared an "alternative" essay - which took me about 2h to update.

PS: is it just me, or 500k limit is way to small for a "creative" essay?

PPS: how come a word document containing only 3 images of 120k each gives me a word doc of 3.3megas?? I was going nuts.

You should have tried converting it to PDF before uploading.This cuts down the size significantly especially when you have images in the document.

I had to go with a low quality pdf, which , I felt, destroyed a lot of the hard work I had put in it. But then I guess the rules are the same for everyone. My high quality pdf for well over 6 megs.

Just curious, why did you guys not print it out and mail it ...? I understand international mail might take some time, but the materials had to be postmarked by 15th Jan, not necessarily had to reach them by 15th. ..

I could only get it finished by the 14th. Also, I didn't have a high quality color printer handy.Didn't wanna take any chances of it getting lost in the mail either. I guess deep down somewhere its my inner lazy self :)

Now that the deadline's over ? What kind of ideas did you guys use ?

You're absolutely right, i should have done that. I didn't do it because I didn't know that there was such a stringent limit in upload. However, i did email Stern who told me I could mail them my essay asking to replace the other one. I do want to confirm the fact that I won't be pshed to R3 though.

Well ..they seem to be real helpful and considerate. Eventually, one of my recommenders messed up, (he thought my reco was due today, and did not submit
it last night). I thought my last app. was screwed and didn't really sleep well ..
Talked him in the morning, he was nearly done with the reco., and he submitted it by 11:30 EST. I called admissions and said they were fine with the delay ..,
and it won't push me to R3 or somethin ...
