Quick question--will self reporting scores slow down application review? Did people arrange for official scores to be sent or can this wait until interview/admit?


Wharton was one of the schools I chose to send my official report so I'm good to go on that front. The school asks you to self report your GMAT, it won't slow down your application at all. Once you are admitted/waitlisted, you will need to send them an official copy.

All the best.

The Awards section seems to be repeated in the application. Its once in the General Info section, and then again in the Education section. So if one has an academic award, then do they repeat it on both the places on the application? Please suggest. :?

Really dumb question here...does anyone know if you need to specify the round you are applying to in Wharton's online system? I started an application a few weeks ago but I've since decided it would be best to submit in round 2. Do I need to do anything in the system, or will it just roll over automatically when I don't submit by the round 1 deadline?

I did that last year (started app in R1, submitted in R2). What round you're in is based on submission not when you start the app. You'll be counted in R2 if you submit after the R1 deadline. There's nothing to do on your part.

Did I understand the instructions right? Wharton needs HIGH SCHOOL transripts?

Where did you see something that implies that? All I see are places to upload Undergrad/Grad transcripts.

You read that wrong. Wharton does not request high school transcripts.

Do you think 527 words for one of the 500 word essays is too much or can we brush those under the rug?

I think +/- 5% should be good.

Just submitted, good luck to all of us!

Actually I did not get any confirmation about my submission, is that the way it is at Wharton?
Other schools seem to send an acknowledgment though.

Any one else with the same experience?

Just submitted as well! Let the waiting game begin! I didn't receive a confirmation either, so they probably just don't send them. Good luck all!

The formatting I did in the fields was not preserved in the html version that I can see of my app. Can someone tell me if it will it be present in the PDF version? The system says I can see a PDF version only after clicking the submit button.

thanks

If you click the submit button it will not immediately submit your application. It will allow you to see the PDF version and from that point you can go back and fix anything on your app you don't like. You still have to enter in payment information before you actually submit. I clicked the submit version many times to fix mistakes I saw in the PDF version, so go ahead and just view it through submit version, it won't actually submit.

Submitted just now. Part of me feels empty, knowing there is nothing left I can do. The other part of me is telling me to do the rest of my schools apps now.

Good luck to all.
