Hey FuturePM91 ,

You submitted quite a bit early. :o

Fee waiver is usually given to re-applicants.

All the best. :)

Haha yeah I am a little early but I am also applying to Ross and WP Carey and they are all due the first week of October so I purposefully started early. I am not a reapplicant soo still not sure about the waiver, but I am definitely not going to question saving $200. :lol:

Okay, so I am starting my Tepper Application from tomorrow. Hopefully, will complete over the weekend.

Where are my other friends? How is it going with you all?



Hey, deadline is just 2 weeks away. You will be able to complete the final draft so fast ? I am applying for the first time and I ditched R1 because I was warned that I shouldn't rush. Hopefully, you can give some tips/insights on how to proceed. I would love to hear. And all the best for your apps. :)

I think this depends on how many applications you've already done and how good of a writer you are. I spent about a month on my first application, 3 weeks on my second (because they had very different essay questions) and since then I've been able to knock out an application a week. (I'm doing 9 total) CMU also only has one essay. So, I believe that if you have your stories nailed down already and your "personal brand" ready it shouldn't take too long to knock out your 3rd or later application.

I did however notice that I started to get a little bit of application fatigue after the 5th one so I took a week off from working on them but otherwise I've been doing ok. Only have 2 left. I started with my first one in June.

Thanks FuturePM91 :)

Hi anupama000 ,

Whatever FuturePM91 mentioned above is true. I completed my Duke application in just 2 days (precisely 26 hours) even when I didn't research on it before.

If you are determined to do something, you spend your days and nights to complete it. :)

Now that I have completed a couple of applications, I feel a bit confident to fill the others.

Although I have also started feeling fatique, I think I will be good as I am travelling from Thursday to Sunday.

Since you can only apply in one round it would be a bit of a waste to take the gmat after you apply especially since you could get a higher score. Have you been scoring higher than a 680 on prep tests? If so I would wait and apply in round 2.

Depends if you are ready with all other components of your application or not. You should reach out to the schools. Many schools are fine with receiving the scores a week or two after the deadlines since the increased GMAT score helps the schools to boost their rankings. In that case you should apply in R1.

Put in a balanced set of schools that you are applying to. Never put all the schools that are ranked lower. This might reduce your chances of getting a scholarship.

Hey guys!

I sent my official GMAT score report to Tepper in first week of Sept, but in my application it still says 'Self-Reported', and not 'Verified'. Does anyone else is facing any such issue?

Thanks!

Hi golumolu ,

That will not change. Don't worry about that. They will reach out in case they donot find the report.

All the best. :)

Hey everyone,

I submitted my tepper application today. In the status page it says my GMAT and TOEFL report is awaited, although I sent them long back. Is everyone seeing it like that ?
