Fantastic. Very envious
Looking forward to hearing more - it is really interesting when various Ad Coms are debating and discussing and spilling their beans.

Interesting. ISB removed it after just one season. Clearly, it didn't work out for them.

: and Yale is thinking to do something on videos as well this year. Article

Georgetown says that for tweet "essay" its OK to embed video or other content. Thats a very curious way to bypass the 140 character limitation - something to think about if you are applying this year (my words, not theirs)

Edit: FYI: When you pick what schools to send GMAT scores - schools do NOT see who else you picked

Wow.... so LOR's are pretty much useless as a measurement of one's performance; it is basically another essay....

Suggestion: If your recommender doesnt speak English; have them write in the native tongue, and then pay for a professional translation. Just have the letter say that it was written in another language.

Tuck says they will contact the applicant if they feel something is amiss, but is generally perceived "EXTREMELY negatively" (quote). Encourage people to find an alternative.
