Mine was only 93 words. I felt it was more important to focus on what made me want to go to Ross. There are many pieces to this essay and very little room. I do have the advantage in this case of my short term goals being pretty clearly related to my career this far.

Did anyone emphasis on FIT in essays other than the first one.

For example, i was planning to write abt a personal experience for essay 4 and then mention wht i was planning to do via a Ross club. Is tht ok? Would that sound too cheesy, me emphasizing fit even when it was not asked for?

By the way, typically how many words are people devoting to describing their sort term / long term career goals? Mine is around 180 words and i am worried that it might not be sufficient. are you guys talking in detail about the reasoning behind those career choices?


Well if you are able to explain your short term and long term goals in brief, even better. Now you have the remaining 320 words to explain why Ross.

Pls advice in uploading grade sheets and degree certificate.

As it allows to upload only one document through "Upload" button, I was thinking to use "Manage Documents" button to upload my individual semester marks sheet for 8 semesters and degree certificate one after another with appropriate title. Please let me know if this the rite way to do it. Or do I need to attach all the semester marks sheet along with degree certificate in a word doc and upload it using "Upload" button.

Thanks a ton,

I uploaded one document that included the final transcript. Hence it had ALL my grades from the 8 semesters. This document also included the scan of the degree certificate.

Hope this helps.

dosa_don,

I created a document and inserted the scanned image of degree certificate and 8 semester mark sheet. Now the document size is 3.3MB. But I believe the size should not exceed 1 MB. Scan was done using grey scale and using only required portion. Any advice?

Cut down on the DPI (resolution) of the scanned image.

As King said, cut down on the DPI (Sometimes 32 works just fine .. when you may have scanned the images with 300). Saving images in grayscale saves some size (I see that you've already done that). Finally, scale-down the image resolution. What's the point of having a 1500x2500 image if it is shrunk in the word-document anyway? I think my images are 400x700 or something like that. Find out an optimum resolution for your images that keep the text very clear at a low resolution.

Thanks everyone. By reducing the size (400*xxx), I was able to get it within 1 MB.

Need one more help - I have my undergrad scores in percentage (100 point scale). But when i click on the little icon against "List all undergraduate and graduate institutions attended.", it says -
Report GPA (converted to a 4.0 scale) as noted for your undergraduate institution only.

I remember ncprasad mentioning in the earlier post that he has reported with 100 point scale. Just wanted to confirm the same. Unfortunately, I dont know how to convert to 4.0 scale.

Pls guide.

I reported my scores on a 100 point scale. Looking back at my pdf application, I see 100-point scale alongside my scores for the different years. I probably picked it from a drop down list or a check box, can't quite recall what it was.

Luckily all my nails have already been chewed off while writing my essays for R2. So dont have any more to go after :)

I think the calls will go out starting 10th or 11th (based on last years thread).

Another question on Font type/size.

I accept it. I hate Times New Roman and love Verdana. I realized i have written all my essays in Verdana pt10, and they are readable. But the app instructions specifically call for atleast pt 11. Shud i stick to the app instructions or go with my aesthetic sense. Pt 11 Verdana makes me feel as if i am visually challenged (its just too big and ugly)

The kind of questions which crop up for b school apps
