What Is the New User Profile
We have recently improved the GMAT Club user profile functionality. Here is what it means:
Added many new fields (such as undergrad GPA, application round, and others) Added a list of School (currently 31 most popular schools are included and others added as needed, request if yours is missing)
Automated School Roll Call lists (more on this below in the Benefits section)
Made the profile more intuitive (hopefully - if not, please let us know)
Added privacy settings
How Does It Work?
If you signed up with GMAT Club after 7/15, you can create and update your profile by clicking My Profile link in the upper right hand corner
If you signed up with GMAT club prior to 7/15/2011, you will have an option to keep your old TEXT profile or to upgrade it to the new Advanced one. To upgrade, please visit My Profile link and click the "Upgrade" button. Many of your settings and fields will be imported but some you may have to input again but it should not take more than just a minute or two. If you enter any schools, you will show up on the Roll Call Automatically. If you would prefer not to, please set the privacy setting accordingly. Make sure you click the save button on every page!
Why Should I Fill Out the Profile? What are the Benefits?

Display the schools you are applying to on your profile - it is much easier now to add schools to your profile and you don't have to figure out how to deal with the color scheme. And remember, this data will also be populated on the roll call, so you don't have to enter it twice and moderators don't have to do as much manual work, so they can start posting more about schools and happenings

Great, How Do I See Stats for Other Schools?
Please visit pages of other schools to see the latest statistics. You can find the full listing in the BSchool Forum and International BSchool Forum. Only discussions for 2012 application season will have the new roll calls and statistics. If a school you are interested in does not have the roll call and real time statistics, please PM me or reply in this thread.
Here is a List of 2012 School Roll Calls that have been implemented. We'll keep updating it
On a side note, One thing I realized when I switched from my large desktop to a laptop is that we need to make the table a bit on the narrower side and save some real estate as it happens to be too wide!
What does matriculation mean? In India, its usually referred to the 10th grade.
Also, please include research and information industry in the WE drop-down. What should people working in companies like Bloomberg, Capital IQ, One Source, etc. choose?
Thank you for pointing this out - was not aware of this cultural difference!!!
Matriculation means - you are entering a school (that's after you are accepted). So after a whole application process, a school would send an acceptance letter inviting you to matriculate. Some people (lucky) may have multiple acceptances letters, so they will only matriculate in one School.
Does that make sense?
P.S. Will add Research and Information industry.
