When you all upload your essays, do you include the question up top as a header? Thank you for your help.


I put the question in the headers of each essay. The adcom physically prints out your application, opposed to just viewing it on a computer, so adding the question to the top can't hurt!

"I didn't bother - assumed that adcoms read enough of these that they know exactly what each essay is about. As long as you label "Essay 1" and "Essay 2" and your name, I think it'll be fine."




Anyone else put their name in each essay? I just put an Essay header "Essay 1 etc." - I realize it is petty but just curious since I have already uploaded everything for all my schools haha. Thank you.

Resume should always be 1 page. If you aren't fitting it on one page you need to be more concise. Make sure you are talking about impacts and accomplishments, not just job duties.

For the Financing the MBA section, are we supposed to estimate the $90k figure for one year or should this cover 2 years worth of costs? (Eek...this is expensive... :( )


I emailed the ad comm about this and they said use both years and the total student budget so your total should be roughly $180k.

Nope. I interviewed on 9/7 and my application went complete on the same day. Nothing yet.

Looks like I will have to continue meditating - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjkWju-DknM :shock:

Hey bananas,
Sorry if this was covered before but was the interview with a current student, an alum, or an admissions rep?
Thanks and good luck!!

An alumna who lives nearby. I think 99% of their interviews are conducted with an alumnus.

That's an interesting stat - nice digging. I bet it's from the date the application goes "under review". I am at 13 weeks since submission, also. I don't think the review period began until 7/25 or so, though.

You submitted your application very early. I would not stress. As I mentioned earlier in this thread, I visited campus on 4 Aug and they stated that they had only begun reviewing applications 2 weeks prior to that. They also were looking at J-term prior to fall entry so it is unlikely your "clock" really started until early August.

Submitted last week, invited the day after submitted, interviewed yesterday. A formal interview with admission staff in Moscow. CBS is my first choice, so, fingers crossed. Hope to know the decision in a week or two.

Got the interview!!!! J-term [#permalink] New post 19 Sep 2012, 23:03
I've been following the boards since I sent my application out, but have yet to participate. I've really appreciated everything you guys have to share. It's really helped me keep my sanity through this process. So with that in mind I thought I'd share a little about my application for those who might be interested.

Submitted my application for J-term on 8/18
received an invitation to interview on 9/19

Sorry to hear that bananas. I find the whole admissions process to be a huge blackbox and it is impossible to gauge your chances at getting into any top tier program (even if you're super qualifited).

On the "Application Status" pg. does it update when they start looking at your app?
