Submitted. But the copy & paste as text was NOT cool !! Now I wait. Good thing I have several other schools submitted to keep my attention occupied

For those who haven't submitteed for round 1, I recommend you get on it fast tomorrow. Right now, 10 PM PST, the system was shaky number of times.

Just submitted as well. Didn't like the copy-paste text boxes and I had to do some last minute edits to my essays. ARGH! Now the agony of waiting begins......

Good luck! Quick question: why is everyone upset about the copy & paste for Booth? Is it because the essays are not submitted through a word format? I personally really hated the forms for Wharton where copy and paste was not allowed, and I had to retype and recheck for errors every single field.

Well, I personally prefer a font and formatting style in Word. With copy and paste I lose that control. With Booth's copy and paste, quotes turn into question marks. Paragraph breaks aren't rendered correctly. I'm spending time correcting these issues.

With Wharton, I simply uploaded my essays and was done.

I agree. Booth's system edits your essay for you, in a not-so-good way. Your quotations are more of a question mark to Booth and forget about those spacings and indentations...it doesn't exist! If you typed out your essay on Word file, chances are you'll have to do some editing after you copy and paste into the text box on Booth's application.

Yes I agree with Bakfed.

It give you a question mark, especially for hyphen. I had to go back and forth like 5 times.

Also, the application copy doesn't contain the entire thing. For uploaded docs, "oh, we can't show them in html." I got so anxious whether I uploaded right documents that I got no sleep. NO SLEEP.

Just submitted! Glad I took the time to review a couple of times; found some minor issues that may come up and addressed them in the optional essay.

After your comments on how you hate the copy paste I went back to print my app. I had caught a couple of quotes-turned-question-marks and fixed those before submitting. But now I realized I have 3 other question marks left into my submitted app (1 hyphen and 2 apostrophes) I hope they understand its the form that did that, but I am still at fault for not going through the printed version with a fine comb before submitting. So yep, I officially hate their copy / paste now too.

I also found three ?'s after submitting my app. I did a search "?" from the *.html application review page and noticed them AFTER i had submitted. Doh! I should have checked first before.

Oh wells.

Interesting. The copy / paste system doesn't support Unicode, which contains special quotation mark and dash characters from MS Word. Regular ASCII ", ', and - are supported, but MS Word converts them into fancier Unicode versions.

I suspect this will be a fairly common error, maybe they won't hold it against us. Its a character encoding issue.

*Late* Pro-tip: you can ctrl+f search on the text box page and it will step through all of the ?'s in your pasted responses (much more reliable than scanning with your eyes).

I should have shared that two weeks ago

I still believe that Berkeley's copy/paste form is the worst. Not only does it have inconsistent text formatting, the word count is inaccurately high!
