Interesting...some guy posted saying he didn't get that email and he submitted on 9/14, which is way earlier than you.


I submitted at the end of August and recieved the email, so I don't know if how early you submitted beforee the ED deadline affected whether you got the email or not.


I submitted in late October and received the email...


Im the one who didnt get the email... now im even more worried! Do you think I should contact AdCom? Or wait it out this week and see if I hear any news? My app does say "Application Complete Date: 09/14/2015"[/quote]

Id say wait it out. You don't want to annoy Adcom !

I submitted on 10/20 and did not receive the email either. I sent an email to the adcom asking if my application is actually complete since I haven't heard anything and she said it's all good and complete. :) So I don't think receiving an email really indicates anything.

Hey everyone!

I know that to be considered for the meri-based scholarships I must submit my application by early Jan.
If I don't, then I am not eligible to be considered for any merit-based scholarships?
Also, the scholarship is based on academics, work experience and potential leadership skills right?

I'm not sure if I should haste and submit my application before Jan to be considered for the scholarship or I should give up on the scholarship and focus more on my application quality.
What do you guys think?

It's just my opinion... remember that a lot of ppl who believe they have put the best possible work and effort into application still get rejected... so I would recommend putting your best possible work and thus best quality.... but if the $ is the most important (in a case if you cannot attend MBA without scholarship), then sure aim for the Jan deadline... otherwise, make the most beautiful application...

Any thoughts on this?

I have included glimpse (one liner) of my backup plan post mba in Optional essay that I have submitted in RD. Does it impact in any negative way? What is the view of you guys on this aspect - in general as well as specific to CBS.

CBS' website mentions the following about the optional essay :

Optional Essay:
An optional fourth essay will allow you to discuss any issues that do not fall within the purview of the required essays.


Your glimpse of your backup plan should have been included in your essay 1 or even essay 3 (center of business, wherein you can talk about how your plan B might also work owing to CBS' center of business location in NYC), the one that talks about Why MBA, Why CBS etc. I do not think you should mention such in your optional essay. Optional essays in general are for specific purposes only. Most candidates talk about some extenuating circumstances/experiences that they could not talk about in any of their other essays (example Wharton only gave 1 essay for why MBA and why Wharton. Nothing was asked about the personal side of things. So I used the optional essay to talk about my international expriences that were not covered in my resume and/or 1st essay).

Some candidates also talk about their low GMAT scores (imbalanced score or low AWA score etc) or even their low GPAs to be frank to the adcoms that low GPA will in no way be representative how that candidate will perform academically.

Hope this helps. All the best for your application.

Yes, exactly. The intention of optional essay that you have mentioned makes sense. I have talked about 2 of these 3 key points in optional essay : personal exp, low gmat. However, for some reason I included that glimpse ( 1 line out of ~500 in optional essay). Perhaps I could have avoided that one line as well!! Now what was to be done is done. Lets see!!

On other point, if I read your points correctly. You are saying that it is OK to include backup plan in main essays (assuming it fits there)?

Good question. Talking about a plan B (if it is specifically asked in the question, Stern used to have a plan B essay prompt) makes sense but otherwise it is a double edged sword.

You dont want to come off as a person who doesnt have clear post MBA ST/LT goals. Everyone undertsands that some people change their goals when they start MBAs but for getting in and for getting your admit, talking about a plan B in your essays is not a good strategy, especially when it is not asked.
