Hey everybody!

I'm just putting the finishing touches to my application and I have two questions:

1. The application says to report your GPA as it appears on your transcript, but I received a "First Class Honors" which obviously isn't in GPA format. Any idea what to do here? I can't just type in first class honors as it doesn't fit in the box!

2. The financing your MBA section. Is this important? Should the total come out around $200k?


1. I had the same issue. I just included this in my resume and obviously it is on the transcript too. I didn't select anything on this part of the application.

2. It should come out to about $200K. I went to an info session where this question was asked and the adcom said that it is mostly there to confirm that you are aware of the costs and have a plan to pay for it.

At the info session I went to a few months back they said that if you apply regular decision you probably wouldn't hear back until 6 weeks after thanksgiving. They reckon that they would be reviewing early decision applicants up until then.

They also said that you would hear back two weeks after the interview, regardless of whether it was an acceptance or rejection.

Someone on livewire posted that all ED applicants received an email saying that RD apps are about to start review. Someone who received it, could you post the body of the email?

Just read it off Clear Admit. I submitted RD on the same date as the ED deadline. 8th October so hopefully should be among the first apps to be reviewed. Tomorrow would make it 6 weeks since my submission.

For me it's already been 9 - 10 weeks. Let's see who gets their interview invite first! :P

There are rumblings on Livewire that ED applicants who have interviewed but haven't heard back yet should be worried about a rejection. Do you guys really think this is the case? My interview feedback was submitted on 11/9, and it said that the decision would come within 14 days. There haven't been very many acceptances OR rejections on Livewire, so I feel like there are certainly still more ED acceptances. Does anyone think it would have helped if I had interviewed a little earlier?

Taking advantage of some vacation this week to knock out these essays and submit my app by next Monday!

If my app is in by Nov 28, I probably won't hear anything back until early January right?
