Hi, while printing the application form in pdf format, I see some questions like "are you a first-generation college grad", etc which were not there on the application form. Anybody else faced the same issue?

I noticed that question as well. Don't worry about it! I looked over every question on the application form and there is no such question. It might be a redundant question from previous applications.

Weird because that question was offered on my application and I answered accordingly.

I can only guess then that it depends on answers to other questions?

Application submitted. Best of luck to all of you.

The PDF formatting was really weird in my preview BTW. FAQ's suggest it is not a big deal.

Perhaps only for US applicants? I notice you both are overseas. I don't think this question will make or break anyone, probably more for financial aid or general demographic reporting.

Dear all,

this is a gray area for me: Being Teaching Assistant and Research Assistant could be considered extracurricular?

I think that yes, because that has been a way to contribute to my college when I was younger.

Any advice appreciated.

Not really. Extracurriculars are usually considered volunteer activities. TA/RA are paid positions. These should still be included on the resume but we would not list them in the Activities section of the application. You can tell that that's not what's expected based on the "Club/Organization" label on the field.

The aforementioned article is not and should not surprising given Wharton's strong tie to Wall Street (the school was formerly known as The Wharton School of Finance).

Many schools have core competencies (HBS = management / Stanford = tech / Wharton = Finance) and depending on latest macro-trends, a school will either benefit or suffer. Essentially, Wharton's core competency is tarnished at present - everyday there is a new negative article about finance. Nothing is permanent and the tides will change. HBS has at times fallen to 4th and 5th in rankings, so has Stanford and Booth. These schools cycle through the top spot(s) but rebound because they have strong alumni, great university affiliations and the recognition of employers. You really cannot go wrong regardless of where you choose to go.

Despite the current situation, Wharton still puts more people on Wall Street than any other school, and those jobs still pay more than any others (even after the decline).

The most important thing to ask yourself is whether you think a school is highly reputable (pedigree helps a lot) and if the companies you want to work for recruit there. Last week Tesla was, along with Apple, Amazon, Google and Microsoft were on campus. I have multiple friends who worked at all these places and Wharton has strong, demonstrated ties to the West Coast tech scene. In May of last year, our tech / entrepreneurship competition attracted top VC judges who represented billions in AUM.

We also have the Goldmans, McKinnseys and Blackstones of the world as well.

An small admissions statistic cannot and will not derail a school with a century of success.

Ultimately, you want to leave on a better path than you came in on and the recruiting power of this place is in my opinion, incredible.

Best of luck everyone.

Trying to submit my application today. Has anyone else had problems with viewing their PDF after submission?

Specifically the section on undergraduate awards where you have a 1,000 character limit.

I am definitely under the limit and have tried multiple formatting styles and it always seems to cut off on the pdf after 4 lines.

Anyone else experience this? Any words of advice or answers?

There were some areas that were clearly below the character limit, but did not fully show on the PDF. I believe someone on this thread mentioned the FAQ section said not to worry.
