Not sure if I'm the only one with this issue, but when I upload my resume to the Sloan site and then look at the PDF version, the alignments and spacing are totally messed up. So my resume in word is 10 point arial and one page, but on the PDF it spills out onto the second page. I had to spend like 30 minutes making adjustments to make sure that the PDF version looks right. Presumably, the PDF version is what adcom looks at.

I faced this issue once - I think this happens randomly when you upload a word document and let the app manager convert it to a PDF. My solution was to download a free PDF writer tool (I got CutePDF), convert my resume (and all my essays) to PDF on my laptop first, and then upload it to the app manager. That way, I have been able to avoid any nasty surprises.

Cheers,
MBAWanderlust



Thanks for the tip. My essays convert fine to pdf, but i guess with the resume it can get messed up.

Guys,

Does any one know when does school start sending out interview calls for Round 2 applicants? I am planning to take GMAT again post my application submission, so checking in how much time I would have?

Thanks

Last year, invites started trickling out in mid-February. This year, the R1 decision date is about a week earlier (Jan 29, 2013 vs Feb 6, 2012) so R2 invites might even come out at the beginning of February this year!

Is the admission office open on the 27th and 28th? Or they are completely off until early January?

I'm also based in the US with no interview invite - it seems that they've finished giving out most US invites. Check the previous 2 pages of posts for this thread. They may give out a few after the office opens in Jan, and theoretically we have until the decision date.

I don't mean to discourage you, but I am in MA and received my invitation about three weeks ago. And when I went to interview that day, nearly all of the other prospectives were also from MA.

Thanks for sharing. At least, I haven't received the official decision so I gotta hope that there are few more interview slots in January... Good luck with your app.

Did anyone else just receive an email saying they have an admissions decision posted online?
I checked but there is no decision posted at this time.

I just got that email too. Assumed it was a ding, although awfully early (and a bit cruel, consider it's the day after Christmas and more than a month before the decision deadline). Not sure what is going on...?

Got the same, see no decision... but think it's ding.

Update: no, it's WL w/o interview

Mine was blank as well, but then posted as waitlist, which is weird since I didn't interview.

This is probably good (better) news guys. At this time, I will be okay with such a waitlist. It shows that they some what liked what they see and want to review the round 2 apps before inviting for an interview.

I am assuming if no WL now, a definite ding in coming days/weeks for rest of us.

Yep, waitlisted also, without an interview. Is this standard WL procedure?

Not sure, I thought it was weird to get it without an interview. I also got stuck on the WL at stanford, but after an interview.
